  1. And while we’re discussing stuff: Superman...

    And while we’re discussing stuff:

    Superman #178 was derived from the concept for a pitch I had.

    I only got a special thanks because all that got used was Uncle Sam getting corrupted by Lex...
  2. Yeah. To clarify on the Beppo/Eradicator...

    Yeah.

    To clarify on the Beppo/Eradicator Thing:

    Not approved but would have been a Secret Files piece for a Return to Krypton follow-up.

    My take was that the Cleric was part of a movement...

    Rich asked me for permission. Haven’t seen the article.

    I doubt unless a lot of context was omitted that anyone would mistake me for an insider.

    Also: the bulk of my insight is on Eddie and...
  4. Poll: I feel a bit more trollish than most here. I'd...

    I feel a bit more trollish than most here.

    I'd have Crossing Tony show up using Kang's time travel tech and recruit Hydra Cap, Ultron Pym, and Maestro. They use the Inversion tech from AXIS on...

    DiDioís favorite modern run is probably Tomasi/Gleason.

    Jurgens gained clout because of Snyderís movies. Those werenít necessarily Jurgensí tastes but they borrowed from him and the Lois/Clark...
  6. My impression was that he brought in everybody...

    My impression was that he brought in everybody but Immonen and Mark Schultz. Those guys loved Schultz though and leaned on him as the sci-fi guy.
  7. I was pitching DC at the time (got my name in the...

    I was pitching DC at the time (got my name in the credits of one of those issues).

    The long and short of it is that you had a few things going on:

    - Jeph's son Sam had cancer. He was trying to...
  8. None of that is technical realism in my mind....

    None of that is technical realism in my mind. Technical realism is stuff like how faster than light travel is possible or whether a truck can drive to California on five tanks of gas.

    It's...
  9. He was deliberately trying to ruffle feathers...

    He was deliberately trying to ruffle feathers there.

    I know Bendis is a HUGE, HUGE fan of Byrne's run (heck, why he's using the title Man of Steel and even the Byrne logo).

    And I've been told...
  10. Iím gonna say that, PERSONALLY, my preferred...

    Iím gonna say that, PERSONALLY, my preferred status quo might be to pull an Iris Allen with Lois and Jon and have them stay with the Legion with her as the POV character in a Legion book.

    Because...
  11. How much of Bendis’ “disregard for continuity” is...

    How much of Bendis’ “disregard for continuity” is him having a disdain for it and how much is editors saying “You’re an asset at dialogue and we don’t want you to waste time on research; just write...
  12. I must be the only one who primarily cares about...

    I must be the only one who primarily cares about comics and TV.

    TV? We’ve got Krypton. We’ve got Supergirl, with a live action Legion. All more to my tastes, anyway.

    Comics? We have an...
  13. Also, lest we forget, Batman up until Crisis and...

    Also, lest we forget, Batman up until Crisis and DKR was the one who worked for law enforcement and was a legal police officer with deep and public government ties while Superman was the outsider....
  14. See... Just as Superman kind of pilfered from Doc...

    See... Just as Superman kind of pilfered from Doc Savage and Captain Marvel in the 50s and reinforced his character, I feel like Batman has rummaged through Superman and gained popularity as a...
  15. I'm going to stake out a tricky position here. ...

    I'm going to stake out a tricky position here.

    It’s awful beyond measure. The children in the daycare deserve so much better. The level of of sickness involved here is saddening. The evil here is...
  16. One of the great Bronze Age stories had Pa being...

    One of the great Bronze Age stories had Pa being resurrected for a day. Time travel is common for super-types. And so are miracles.

    Permanently or short term or even just for a day, I think Jon...
  17. Poll: I regret not getting the Middleton cover. ...

    I regret not getting the Middleton cover.

    Action #1000 had a 500k run and sold out almost everywhere! I kind of expect a second print and maybe additional convention variants based on the...
  18. I think many of the better runs came from either...

    I think many of the better runs came from either letting a creator run wild or giving them the kind of twisted freedom they had in the “Death” era (Ie. WB would block a Lois/Clark Wedding but let...
  19. I will say I’ve never bought into Kryptonians...

    I will say I’ve never bought into Kryptonians being solar powered (the amount of power storage just isn’t there in their body volume without exotic matter) but always saw it more as solar triggered....
  20. Iím not even a huge fan of TAS but I liked that...

    Iím not even a huge fan of TAS but I liked that bit. As I recall, wasnít it that Brainiac suppressed the truth? Why did he do that again? Because heíd decided it was futile and would interfere with...
  21. It seems to me there are potentially a couple of...

    It seems to me there are potentially a couple of store exclusives we have not seen.

    There is almost certainly a Books-A-Million/2nd and Charles “Fried Pie” variant. They’ve never not done one for...
  22. I wish they’d fixed Lois’ hair on the 90s one. ...

    I wish they’d fixed Lois’ hair on the 90s one.

    The 80s one? It’s an interesting mashup. That Superman channels Reeve. The Jimmy is very pre-Crisis. The Lois is actually Byrne’s first take from Man...

    The trade dresses for the retro variants:

    Also, if it wasn't clear, it seems all versions are on a glossy cardstock cover, prestige format.

    Sonic has a naked belly. Mega Man has a two tone outfit with trunks.

    Anyway, especially as Superman moves away from baby blue, I think yellow is the most important color in his costume.

    Garcia-Lopez is tricky. He's just so much of a "total DCU artist" (along with Lee) that it's hard. Ordway is great. Grummett, I came to think of more as a Superboy artist. Then we probably need...
