    To be clear, I think that Bendis is extremely good at writing and creating non-white characters. He's probably one of the best in comics. That's absolutely not the issue.

    I have also already said...

    First, I so accept "racebending" in adaptations - though even there, I do generally prefer characters to look as much like their comics counterparts as possible.

    Effectively, this nullifies all...

    Well, whitewashing characters is pretty much the exact same thing as race-swapping but is toward caucasian than away from it. My problem with it is as follows. First, if the colour of a person's skin...

    Thank you! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who finds race-swapping characters to be, at best, horribly misjudged. It's largely seen as OK now by liberal types (of which I normally am one) but I...

    I couldn't agree more but I find this crap extremely easy to avoid. It hasn't made much of an impact at all in the books I'm currently reading and, save for Supergirl, which I'll drop as long as it's...

    Man, Action Comics' cover is horrendous. I've liked Romita elsewhere but I really hate his work on Superman.

    Not much of note otherwise, aside for another DKR one-shot and confirmation that...

    Deservedly so. It leaped ahead of its fellow superhero shows this year by a fair distance, especially those on the CW.

    I assume the Boys wasn't eligible, though? But, then again, there would be...

    I disagree with some of his decisions but overall I'm a huge fan of his work for DC and perhaps an even bigger fan of how he has made each Super-related book well worth reading and making Wonder...

    But again, there's a gigantic difference between having a relationship with a much younger woman and molesting a child. In fact, there is absolutely no correlation between them whatsoever - which I...

    All I have to say is what a tragic waste of Steve Epting.

    Oh, I've never claimed that I want to give him the benefit of the doubt because I am such a fan - that doesn't change the fact that there is, in fact, reasonable doubt about his guilt. My being a fan...

    This isn't the same at all as Weinstein. Weinstein was an incredibly powerful force in Hollywood who could easily make or break your career. Woody was never a big money-maker and had none of the...

    I have no idea. It's not impossible but there is plenty of reasonable doubt on both sides. Moses Farrow's testimony was compelling but as is his brothers'. There have been some who speak up for...

    As an overall score, it may well be Giacchino's work on the Star Trek reboot but the First Contact theme is hard to beat. The latter is one of the great, underrated movie themes in general, I would...

    To be fair, he was Savatar in name only. Literally everything else about him was different.

    He's known for being extremely opinionated and incredibly passionate about those opinions to the point that he can be rather intolerant of those who don't agree with him. Near as I can tell, he's...

    There was nothing wrong with post-Crisis Superman. Writers like JMS and James Robinson were just a godawful fit for the character, the whole New Krypton thing went on way longer than it needed to and...

    It's a pretty terrible place to start and that's really a problem as it was supposed to be the perfect jumping-on point for new readers. Instead, it started off with a contradictory and overly...

    It depends.

    Tim Drake is my preferred Robin and I love Dick as Nightwing. In fact, I would take either over Bruce Wayne but Bruce will always be the only Batman in any permanent sense.

    The "Death" story was basically just an excuse to highlight some great art (has Jurgens ever topped Superman #75 as an artist?), taking eight or nine issues to get to what it had been advertising for...

    I don't necessarily mind the changes he made to the mythos (some were good, some less so) but the best thing about Byrne was that he set up the Triangle era to really deliver on his ideas.

    I couldn't agree more. This book is way overlooked but it's flat out excellent, in both writing and story.
