    The explanation I've heard is the success with Action Comics and Detective Comics #1000.

    Mr.B's take that it is to set up 5G seems less likely to me. If that was the only goal, I think DC would...

    Dick Grayson going from Nightwing to Batman and then back to being Nightwing again isn't really comparable. The comparable situation to Babs would be that Dick went from Robin to Nightwing and then...

    I think giving Babs back the use of her legs was a defensible choice to make. It's not necessarily the "right" choice, but it would work from a narrative standpoint. I do think that the wheelchair...

    DC may attempt to make Poison Ivy into a straight villain, but I'm not sure they can. The straight villain Poison Ivy was nothing like a plant-themed sexy villainess, who was bad because she was sexy...

    Good for Ivy! I watched the first half of the show, but didn't find the humour that funny, and their Poison Ivy to not be that interesting. Might be worthwhile to take another attempt.

    I think they all deserve credit for this, and I think it speaks for that there are different strengths for writers. Ostrander and Yale had the imagination to come up with the concept of Oracle and...

    Thanks!

    One of the things that strikes me when reading the old Birds of Prey stories is that Chuck Dixon has very good storytelling instincts. He gets the interplay between characters; he groks...

    Some thoughts on the various stories.

    Orlando and Merino: I liked the way Diana regained the Golden Lasso, but a lot of the story otherwise falls flat. The dialogue feels more like contending...

    Having Hippolyta active in Man's World before Diana messes too much with Diana's origin. I don't see time travel or time loops as a good solution, since they intrinsically break the narrative...

    I think there are some clear differences between how these writers use those tropes. Wilson doesn't frame the intervention as moral, and has Diana act as an agent for diplomacy in her story. She also...

    As a story, not much. Reasonably tense and exciting action, if a bit repetitive at times. Art was mediocre (at least to me). Dialogue was one-note. Basically a filler story to read once. But it has a...

    One Script, Many Artists

    Twitter user Project Art Cred managed a cool thing: have a single writer (Kieron Gillen) write a script for a one-page comic with five frames, and have several different writers illustrate it.

    Why? It's not like Harley as a character has any agency or decision making power here. That rests solely with the publishers, editors, and writers at DC.

    And I think there is a really strong trend...

    Now, will Snyder go really meta, and have Sam Moskowitz block Diana at a door, or have her run into Ray Bradbury, Julie Schwarz, Forry Ackerman, or Myrtle Douglas?

    I'm going to go out and call bullshit on that.

    What used to be the case was that mainly white dudes were allowed to be heroes. Opening that up to other people and groups is a good thing.

    Interesting find! (It's on the second paragraph of the third column.) To me it reads like a rather blatant attempt at a retcon, but I can't claim there is no support in the published works.
