    So after I tore my comics to shreds in the 1960s, by 1970 I learned that you should keep your comics intact. Trouble is they'd rip--so I figured I should repair them and then they wouldn't fall...

    I guess I was trying to say what you said, but I chose to use "silly" as a way of explaining why some say they were "a joke" when they weren't. The ceremony itself felt more relaxed and fun--so...

    I feel like, the more effects driven and digital the art, the less integrated with the story it feels. It's like the writer is doing all the work of telling the story--through dialogue and...

    I think the Golden Globes were considered silly but nevertheless regarded as worthwhile. Being silly, the celebrities could have fun at them and didn't have to be so formal as at the Oscars. Yet they...

    I think that a romantic comedy should be equal parts romance and comedy. Some of the movies listed on here might be romantic, but I don't find them funny enough to be outright comedies--movies like...

    I like the idea of an amalgam character called the Adam Stranger. It's a name I've heard fans toss about--I don't know if he appeared in a comic book at some point or just fan fiction.

    There was a...

    Virtually every comic book I bought in the 1960s as a little kid got torn to pieces by me--just from me reading them over and over and over until they completely fell apart. But I kept them anyway....

    Is DOOM PATROL back yet? Seems like years since it's been here. Out of sight, out of mind.

    The only currently airing programs I am watching are sometimes some segments of COLBERT and JOHN OLIVER....

    In the comics, isn't she always in the army from 1941 until 1968? I know in the T.V. show they make her a Navy Yeoman, but in the comics Wonder Woman takes the identity of the real Diana Prince, who...

    In the original 1952 series, THE PHANTOM STRANGER, it seems his main job is to host the anthology like a lot of other mystery men that hosted anthologies. But he does appear toward the end of the...

    I have all three seasons on D.V.D.

    I know nothing about H.D.--does this mean I have to scrap my old discs and buy new ones? Do I have to get a new computer screen, too? I'm not sure I'm missing...

    I quite liked Martin Pasko and Rick Burchett's treatment of Blackhawk--even though it was built off of the Chaykin rewrite of the character and it took place after W.W. II.

    Like people have said, he's invulnerable, so it shouldn't hurt him. And the fact he has super-hearing should give him an edge.

    In old comics, there were times when Superman's powers were so...

    WAR OF THE WORLDS (1953), produced by George Pal, directed by Byron Haskin, starring Gene Barry, Ann Robinson and Les Tremayne, based on the novel by H. G. Wells.

    I know that I've seen this movie...

    Sadly, given all the work George Perez and Marv Wolfman put into it, I don't consider THE HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE to have any legitimacy. It came out after CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS had ended but...

    I don't know. It seems like the current vogue in writing is to delay the audience satisfaction as long as possible--on the theory that this anticipation will keep the audience interested for more...

    Read AN UNLIKELY PROPHET by Alvin Schwartz, if you haven't already. At least the first part where he talks about his time at D.C. Schwartz felt that he knew who these characters were and when they...

    I'm still enough of a Batman fan that I get my back up when people say Bruce is the worst. Because it isn't Bruce--it's the people that write the character. Just because a writer changes the...

    Yes. The New 52 gave me a good reason to stop buying all the D.C. titles because they all ended. If there had been a title that continued that I was reading, that might have kept me going back to the...

    How well off was Jack Kirby when he died? For all the work he did over his lifetime, it doesn't seem like he ever got rich from it. I don't know if this is just his bad luck or what. All the ventures...

    Hm, when I think about it, I realize that Denny O'Neil screwed up both these guys and their relationships with their young partners.

    Before that, I think Bruce was the better mentor. The first...

    To give this concept more consideration than it's worth, I'd like to ask Peter David how this applies to folks that are gay, non-binary, pansexual. Do they become the reverse, too? How far can you...

    By "Ulysses" do you mean the version of Odysseus that's presented in the Aeneid? Virgil had an agenda, since his book is about Aeneas, a Trojan, he has to make the Greeks look bad. So from that...
  24. Poll: Do you think the green hood was a colouring...

    Do you think the green hood was a colouring error? It seems likely that someone just got it wrong and nobody bothered to correct them because it wasn't considered that important back then.

    Funny...

    Well I mentioned it in one of my comments above. I said it was a spoof story. Maybe some people take it seriously, but I think of it as being outside of any real continuity. It's in the story about...
