    I’d forgotten about this. What a great bit in a great book.

    I really need to revisit the series — I hope they put the whole run up on DC Universe Infinite when it launches.

    Itís weird, lose the pulp trappings and my interest in the character disappears completely. Wes is interesting to me specifically because heís not a conventional superhero, and the later incarnation...

    2010s for me. The Ď90s were pretty awful comics in general, but I thought DC fared better than most publishers.

    Tim as Robin in his own book? And not by Tynion? I’m in.

    There is a lot of beautiful art there. I had written off this event as filler, but now the smaller scale and interesting design work is...

    Brave and the Bold would be a nice outlet for the B-tier heroes now that DC has pared back its publication roster.

    I’d also vote for World’s Finest and a Tim Drake solo. And Super Sons.

    I’d...

    Alfred was fat in his first appearance but the iconic design is based on his serial actor, William Austin. Similarly, Superman serial actor Lyle Talbot had a big influence on the look of Lex Luthor...

    In terms of current visibility, the Sandman hasnít fared particularly well. But in terms of quality of stories, Sandman Mystery Theatre is one of the best books DC has ever done.

    Nice to see SMT getting so much love. I worry it’s growing increasingly obscure, and it was niche to begin with. Great book.

    I liked the first one for what it was. But now it’s starting to feel like an invasive weed.

    Yeah, if HBO Max were a $5 add-on indefinitely, I might rationalize it as an inevitable price increase for DC Universe. even though it almost doubles the price. But at $180 a year? On top of what...

    I don’t read Marvel, so my only basis of comparison is what I have now vs. what we’re getting in the future. If I add HBO Max, I’ll have the same catalog of back issues as now, fewer DC shows and a...

    Isn’t that what they’re doing now? The announcement says there will be 24,000 comics at launch next year, but there were already more than 23,000 by last May, according to one article. So we’re...

    I was hoping they would dump a bunch of new back issues on it to make up for the withdrawal of other media, but it doesn’t look like that’s happening. I’ll be curious to see how much exclusive...

    Iím a realist about Captain Carrotís prospects, but I do draw hope from the amazing resurgence of Stargirl and the JSA that shifting corporate priorities could benefit family-friendly portions of the...

    This is why I’m dropping modern DC. I don’t see how people can be invested in the endless reboots when we don’t even get the new status quo established before they move on to the next one.

    Agree. The Affleck suit shows it can be done. Weíre beyond the days when superhero outfits need to be black leather or bulky armor. I tend to think itís only a matter of time before we see the blue...

    Bart is Impulse. It’s both his superhero name and his personality. They should stick with that. Otherwise he’s just another Flash, and we don’t need another Flash.

    It’s working for me again. I’m surprised how short the panels are — the Titans panel has 11 guests but is only 15 minutes? And includes a discussion of fan favorite moments? How will that work?

    I’m as big a YJ fan as anyone but this book proved to be dull and directionless. It was infected with the same problems plaguing DC as a whole: Too much navel-gazing about continuity and too much...
