    I don't know if they hate the Nineties characters ... but they LOVE the '90s Aesthetic. The irony of course being the DC thing from the 90s everyone talks about as a timeless legendary thing is...

    I like both runs rather a lot. X-Men is wilder. Things are shocking in a more natural shocking way and the stakes feel higher.

    That's a crazy thing to say when like, Raven's dad is a demon that's...

    Dick to me is 100% Theseus. I grant that the Greek Heroes aren't the Greek Pantheon.

    I'm excited for this. I'm a big Damian fan. I liked Rebirth Teen Titans a lot for the first author's run. After that it dwindled to uninteresting, but I feel like fresh runs often do that so I try...

    I'd say that plenty of characters old and new can be Superman (there's several from various sci-fi scenarios, alt-earths, and what-have-you that have premises strong enough that I consistently enjoy...

    Such a grim concept and thread topic. It's so true though. There's a few caveats I think I'd like to get into ... "IN STORY". We all know why Mayfeld had better development than Finn in the real...

    Bad writing - but primarily bad story structuring. Bad plotting. I think plenty of examples of dialogue are "Star Warsy" and you can't pin any of the fatal flaws on the actors. And you can debate...

    I haven't seen it pulled off pitch-perfectly yet but I'm really liking Damian's "I'm Not Robin" white costume. I loved his Grayson-Era first Robin costume and I loved how his Rebirth updates...

    I mean she Attempted Murder on Roman Sionis at this point, right? I know the context of when it was written because I love that run with my whole heart and she killed him, to the point where when...

    My only question is; will the Bat-Family switch into Power Rangers style costumes? And if not, why not? COME ON.

    I liked almost everything about the DC Last Days of the Special. Except the DickBabs stuff. And I'm 100% a constantly awkward in, out, mad, not mad, Sam & Diane Dick & Babs insane chronology, story...

    Not a lot to dive into. Once you break it down from its needless fragmentation the story beats are pretty clean and simple. Mann's art is quite nice. I really like that Catwoman costume a lot. The...

    I saw a list the other day of like, your Top Ten New 52 concepts. And while Scott Snyder's Batman somehow made # 1, and all the other Snyder Co. allied titles were totally in there, pretty...

    Hey, this story might be filler to fill in the gaps in the publishing but it's got a few things going that several other comics this week don't.

    A coherent story. A back-to-basics approach to the...

    Definitely don't waste your money on a stop-gap space-filler micro-event. There's nothing in particular wrong with Alt-Future storylines. But there's all kinds of quandaries with line-wide things...

    Agreed. I can't claim to know but I suspect he's probably fairly satisfied with the Filoniverse as of now. A lot of really satisfactory resolutions and "could continues". And while I still think it's...

    People also don't tend to realize that the American Revolution didn't happen in a few weeks. There were 10-15 years of serious unrest, militia arming, incompetent governance by British jokers, taxes...

    Watched this to pass time between Thanksgiving dinner and new Mando tonight. I laughed quite a bit. It's silly and Lego and whatever but there were still moments I really liked within the spoofing.

    An aphorism.

    I must admit, while I like any good nerd love the old Stan Lee one-liner from Uncle Ben, it's an aphorism that I don't think has a lot of real clarity. What does Ben Parker mean when...

    I thought this was good. A nice document and I thought he used the let's say catchphrases-of-the-era, the parlance, effectively and judiciously and in a way that didn't feel super overt. Or I mean...

    I've found it to be more hit than miss but respect enough of all the previous Tomasi runs and it's had these glimmers, these moments, so I've stuck with it.

    I liked the Damian return and I liked...

    Funny how 9. introduces the concept of Inheritance and 10. introduces the concept of Lineage and 11. Immediately makes it relevant. Looking forward to seeing Din's unique...

    I don't think Vader is too powerful in the comics.

    But the medium, with its big spaces and fluid drawings and occasional artistic license tends to make cool moves and scenes come across as more...

    It could be cool if they do a kind of Don Corleone thing with him.

    Weirdly enough I feel like it could still be done. Get a little high adventure in there, and a smidge of allegory about how when...

    Moreover a lot of Stormtroopers seem to have been press-ganged into service, coerced, extorted, or came from run-down circumstances that meant they didn't have many other options. Han Solo is a fine...
