    My cost saving measure for Solomon Grundy is to do what was done in the comics--where every time he "dies," he comes back different. So if they don't have the budget, he comes back as simply a tall...

    This is an "Art in current comic books" subject. Like with other current comic art, those examples are too crowded. It's about subtraction--taking away the details that overstuff the image and...

    Not forgotten but always dumped on is MY MOTHER THE CAR. But I remember liking the show. It was in my lane, when I was a kid. We already had a talking horse, a witch--and next a jeannie and later a...

    Elinore, sure, as a retcon. But it was Ella before that. And it was definitely Ellen on LOIS & CLARK--I rewatched all four seasons and did a post on that, not so long ago, where I tracked these kinds...

    Well, if you want to get technical. But it seemed to mean a lot to Ted that Doris showed up for him as Starman. I think that's cool. Says something about him and how he felt about her and the Starman...

    Why did they make Ella look so old? She could be Lois and Lucy's grandmother.
  8. Poll: I remember in one of the Robinson STARMAN comics...

    I remember in one of the Robinson STARMAN comics there was a page which indicated all those past, present and future called Starman. This was where we got a hint that Danny Blaine would be a Starman...

    To get the Len Wein issues in SHOWCASE PRESENTS, you would have to get volumes 5 and 6. I have volume 5, but I never knew there was a volume 6. Now that I look for it online, there don't seem to be...

    Went to the supermarket today (last time I was there was Thursday) and found that they took away all the signs and arrows for where to go and where to stand. And half the employees were now maskless....

    As someone who is getting older every day, I can tell you that there's a point in life where grumpy becomes your default setting.

    Honestly, this was always an alliteration that I never understood but just accepted. I didn't know anything about domino masks. And what's a daredoll?

    But looking into it now, a domino was a...

    My recollection is that Thaddeus Bodog Sivana coined the phrase, "Big Red Cheese." And I assume he meant it derisively.

    The cheese is an old coinage. If someone was the cheese, that meant they...

    Ella Lane appeared about as often as Sam Lane in the pre-Crisis comics--not a lot but enough that we knew some details about both of them. They both lived in Pittsdale and had a small farm--Pittsdale...

    My top three are Bill Marston, Mike Sekowsky and Marty Pasko.

    Of course, some of that Marston material is probably Olive Byrne, Bob Kanigher or others.

    I like Mike's mod Diana Prince scripts...

    What did they do with issue 103? That's the Rutland Hallowe'en issue, where some guests are cosplaying as Captain America, Spider-Man and Thor. In the original comic, the Marvel Faithful have...

    The "Pie-Lette" (just rewatched it) lacks a musical number. Barry Sonnenfeld also directed the second episode ("Dummy") and that episode does have a musical bit with Kristen Chenoweth singing,...

    Although I picked up a couple of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA comics in the 1960s--issue 52 in 1967 and issue 63 in 1968--those weren't enough to put JUSTICE LEAGE OF AMERICA on my must buy list at the...

    I haven't watched it, but isn't the Kyle Rayner in that a lot like Hal Jordan? So you got two for one. Kind of like how animated Wally West is a hybrid of the original Barry Allen and Wally West...

    Anyway, I think of "The Blue...
