    While valuable, Eco is more doing a description of fascism than a definition of it. It's one of the best and most insightful descriptions, but it can lead to problems when applied to modern forms of...

    At its core, fascism is highly mutable and really a perversion of democracy: it takes elements that are necessary for a functional democratic society and perverts them. As such, claims of "fascist...

    These are not really comparable. Rucka wrote 25 issues over one year, Azzarello wrote 35 over three years. Both are major efforts in this day and age, but also very different ones in the demands they...

    I think you're reading more into my words than I intended. As far as I can tell, Wilson hasn't jettisoned or backburnered any character. What she has done is introduced the supporting characters she...

    I'm not sure I'd say it's inconsistent, rather that it is developing and changing, and partly follows the nature of the characters and the adventures. Wilson isn't discarding Rucka's old supporting...

    While your argument is more that Azzarello is well liked by DC and available, so the only choice.

    Sorry, I don't buy that line of argument. Not from DiDio, and not from you. One of the prime jobs...

    You know what to do with those types of trolls? You run right over them.

    Not sure I agree with that. Sidelining Steve Trevor (and Etta Candy) was arguably the worst mistake that came out of the Pérez era (and I have no idea on whose idea it was to do so).

    Just because...

    I think it's better to say that McFarlane did here was low-density storytelling. That's something I've thought of when I read the old Golden Age Wonder Woman stories. The number of pages is somewhat...

    DC is large enough that they should be able to move around people onto titles as needed. I expect this title has been planned for at least half a year, probably more. So I'm going to interpret...

    If Diana needs an army, she simply gets out in front of the nearest demoralised or pinned down army unit, possibly but not necessarily shouting "follow me". See the third story of Wonder Woman #1, or...

    I don't think the style was the problem, really. The problem really was that Nord's art put in the wrong emotional beats that the story needed and called for, and that he put the least effort into...

    The top brass of DC doesn't have a good track record of dealing with sexism or harassment.

    Another game classic, though maybe at the tail end of the period… and still as addictive as when it was new.
