    When I see someone expressing a negative opinion of a classic comic book that I happen to have great affection for, my impulse is always to try and find a way for them to achieve a positive outlook...

    I assumed Frances Kane had a mild form of dyslexia--like my typing fingers or like Michael Scott who is NOT the father of Astird Levinson. She meant it to be Magneta, but spelled it Magenta. Like all...

    It might be a cliché now, but "back in my day," it was a fact that the majority of mainstream comic books were read by little kids. That was the mass market. When the comic industry lost the kids, it...

    Magenta--one of the three colours (plus black) of four colour printing--thus simpler for the colour separator. Say it with me--Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK!

    That's not really true for Talia--unless you mean she was a support for Dr. Darrk in "The Den of the Death-Dealers"--it's hard to say who is more important in that story, Talia or Darrk. She serves...

    The particle "al" in Arabic can either mean "the" or "of the"--in this case it means "of the"--the head (Ra's) of the (al) demon (Ghul). Although demon is an inexact translation--it's more like an...

    Throughout his run in FLASH COMICS, the main adversary of "King" Standish (a.k.a. the King) was the Witch. She was relentless in her efforts against him.

    I remember the early 1980s as the time of the young super-teams. It was one of those hot trends in comics that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was parodying. You had the X-Men, New Mutants, Infinity...

    With so many movies and T.V. shows made in Vancouver, it used to bug me how people could get from one place in the city to a completely different place--or somewhere way out in the sticks--within a...

    I had my Thanksgiving dinner. Everything turned out well, except I tried to make Knödel and they just fell apart when I put them in the boiling water. So I baked them in the oven instead. Last year,...

    I ruled out Dick Grayson (Robin/Nightwing/Batman II) from consideration--along with others like Ambush Bug and the Legion of Super-Heroes--because he was teamed with Superman so often, he was a...

    Pervert doesn't have a strong meaning for me anymore, because it's been used to condemn people who are doing no harm and justify violence toward them.

    The reasons I had for coining the name "Sand Superman Saga" (more than twenty years ago, now) were as follows: If you use Quarrm you're giving away a spoiler--as the comics were coming out, what the...

    I didn't know that Lois' appearance was being limited by the publisher. Why was that? It makes no sense to me. When I rewatched the whole series, this was one of the most frustrating things. As soon...

    Did Terry Long die? I must have checked out by then. Because I think I would have celebrated if he got knocked off. That would be a good death--but only in that he was such a bad character, killing...

    I grew up being parented by T.V. And on T.V. a big brother or a young uncle could be a parent to kids. The line was blurred for me as to how old you needed to be to have your own kids. I always...

    As an aside, can I just say how much I hate the "Talia al Ghul" thing. Her father declared himself "Ra's al Ghul"--the Head of the Demon--all one name, it wasn't a family name. Talia is just...

    I don't need for the original Justice Society to be alive in the present day. In fact, if they're dead now, that makes it more likely they can exist in the past rather than being retconned away....
