    IIRC, the radio program gave The Shadow that "cloud men's mind" thing because describing the way he could hide in shadows didn't work in narration as well as it did in print. In the pulps (at least...

    Some of those pulp stories were painful, but even those were pretty fun. The interchangeable way in which those authors used "revolver" and "automatic" was murder on my OCD tendencies. :)

    CBR's algorithm apparently doesn't like the term b-u-s-i-n-e-s-s-i-n-s-i-d-e-r, preventing me from posting a link, but that site [that must not be named] has an article on how the surviving Koch...

    I think the latter is probably the greater number of those unwilling to convict.

    The term superhero didn't get applied to the genre (which at the time wasn't really a genre) until it had been around a few years. Reading the early DC titles, they typically referred to the...

    The Shadow did all of that. They just made the powers ambiguous.

    If Trump's power is fully blunted by social media algorithms, I think you can look for Congress to begin a very quiet, but very determined push to curb social medias power to curb politicians' power....

    This was something on which I though Fox, Kubert and their successors really dropped the ball. It made no sense for Hawkman and Hawkgirl to study US law enforcement, unless that was a cover and they...

    Oh yeah. I adored The Power Company. Busiek's Kirk dePaul is my favorite of all the Manhunters.

    The first run of Booster Gold. It brilliantly touched on America's growing obsession with fame and wealth-from-fame. It was speaking to its time, which was the heyday of Lifestyles of the Rich and...

    The Phantom Stranger, Dr. Fate, and The Spectre just pack too much mystic muscle for any one reality.

    IMO, there are too many who - even tho they may loathe him - fear that voting for Trump's conviction guarantees a primary challenge with better than even odds against them. State of NY is probably...

    Yes, but I'd expand it to something broader. Include some "untold stories" of the golden age characters, perhaps as the backup feature if you run it as a split book. That also gives you an...

    I got a bad feeling The Zuck wants the FB engagement numbers that Trump's ranting creates, and is taking show-steps to justify...
