    It didn't go over readers' heads, because the satire wasn't there. Now of course this is subjective, so let me clarify.

    In the case of Watchmen, Rorschach is definitely intended to satirize...
  2. Well said. I agree with this.

    Well said. I agree with this.
  3. Well it's Watchmen if Watchmen had nothing to say...

    Well it's Watchmen if Watchmen had nothing to say about politics, society, history, storytelling, the comics medium, if Rorschach actually was a good fighter, if the heroes actually defeated the bad...

    Not sure how that works because after all Miles Morales is fundamentally a more successful character than Kamala Khan is. Miles Morales is a household name whereas Kamala Khan is generally not very...

    I think this might be a darker issue than what we are used to.
  6. Probably because Daredevil is one of the few...

    Probably because Daredevil is one of the few major titles that's not tied to a major media franchise or merchandise and since Frank Miller, it's been pitched to an older reading audience than other...

    Remember that Dubya Bush's popularity after 9/11 was sky-high and Millar is politically speaking all over the place.

    It's always been my opinion that The Ultimates was an unironic Pro-Bush and...

    What the readers knows does not correspond or correlate to what the characters knows, nor clarify what they would reasonably do in that situation.

    Carlie is not sure where she is, what's she...

    It's an example of a cultural milestone that's not a very good cultural product, much like Mark Millar's CIVIL WAR, or Rob Liefeld's career.

    Bryan Hitch's art, though was trailblazing and to me...

    This is a good issue. It's a solid set-up for Sinister War #1, and making it a clash between multiple factions of supervillains is a really ambitious idea but that makes me wish this was done on a...

    People were a little down towards the end of JMS' run, they said they can't wait for BND as well, which lol worked out fine back then.

    I think Spencer's run will be valued better similar to how...

    There are movies which have some or all of that and succeed commercially, so it's not a sufficient reason why a toy commercial for kids didn't sell.



    As I said, you need to work by generating...

    The superhero genre in the movies was an irregular thing until the MCU.

    Before the MCU, superheroes were solo movies, and they followed a small set of characters in a single setting, and the idea...

    Nobody is forcing you to think otherwise, just as you can't force anyone that your personal individual response alone can shut down debate and negate any counter-arguments, or stand in and represent...
  16. That's not the problem. The problem is that...

    That's not the problem. The problem is that Tarantino portrays several real-life celebrities in OUTIH -- Steve McQueen, Sharon Tate, Roman Polanski, Bruce Lee, Jay Sebring. Of the lot, only Bruce...

    He's not. Tarantino never went to film school nor has he published actual scholarship on film-making and film production

    Tarantino is a self-taught film geek which is to say he knows a great deal...

    Ock and Aunt May never got married. Hammerhead thankfully stopped that in time.

    We have to wait for the end of Spencer's run to see what it does. Let's not presume what the conclusion will be and judge the run based on those presumptions. That would not be fair.

    In any case,...

    Ultimately new costumes exist to sell toys. Simple as that. You can't promote new toyline based on the New Spider-Man movie if his costume is the same as the previous one.

    Good point.



    Great point.

    I mean the question of what characters are relatable or what makes a character relatable are essentially an attempt to introduce marketing ideas into the field of...

    That stuff can presumably be faked and so on n by super science.

    Those two a--holes lost their unimpeachable source after OMD.
