    To be clear, I wasn't suggesting that's why they called her that. It was a joke. To me, the name smells like a generic decision-by-committee, run-it-by-the-focus-group kind of thing. Or it could be...

    Ryan Reynolds starred in a pretty terrible movie back in the early 2000s called "Van Wilder". The name "Ryan Wilder" seems like the sort of blunder-by-committee that you would expect from network TV.

    I imagine the Joker storyline was mandated. Assuming it was, I'm hoping he really runs with the whole being relatively broke thing and we see a less omniscient Batman now.

    I really liked this issue. A nice back to basics reset. Hopefully that's the last we see of Catwoman for a while as she has her own stuff to do, I'm sure.

    Ronda Rousey is 5í 7Ē and Tatiana Maslany is 5í 4Ē, according to IMDb. Rousey fought in the UFC at 135 lbs and won her Olympic medal at 70 kg. She is not some behemoth.

    Good lord, a fellow Arak fan. I have brought up this awesome old comic numerous times. I'd love to see the original series collected. I am not sure if a new series would really fly, considering it's...

    You should definitely read From Hell. It ranks up there with Maus, My Favorite Thing Is Monsters, Louis Riel, etc. Like those books, it takes some effort to get through but it's so unique that it's...

    Just to give a little more perspective on Moore's views on superheroes, he has always claimed his best and most serious work has nothing to do with superheroes at all. Thus the "superheroes are for...

    Yeah, I agree with all of this. I've mentioned before that DC seems to shy away from genuinely evil women. They are all victims or somehow redeemable antiheroes. It feels old-fashioned and...

    I was just browsing on my phone and I realized you can’t see stuff hidden by spoiler tags easily. Or am I missing something? I had to cut and paste into a separate text box, annoying.

    1. I hope this is the last we see of the Joker for a good long time.

    2. I also hope that Tynion doesn't continue to write these bombastic stories where Gotham...
