    I always expected a full walk-out by the Superman artists called upon to execute that character design. How many months would a penciller have to sweat over the pages for just one Doomsday story?...

    Len Wein said in interviews that he always wrote villains from a sympathetic point of view. I think this developed out of his being sick as a child and always being bed ridden--he had empathy for all...

    I know that Holmes is tall in the stories, but I don't recall Conan Doyle every giving an exact figure as to his height. Given it's Victorian times, Holmes would have appeared taller to the average...

    I think you could add Bram Stoker's Dracula to the list. Some might argue that Stoker based his character on legends and there's some historical basis to his work, but I think those odd details just...

    I still remember THE $128,000 QUESTION that aired in the mid-70s. There was a young man on there who was an expert in all things Sherlock Holmes and he kept winning. However, there was a question--I...

    I had similar confusion. First I thought she was British, but then I looked her up and found she was American, but with having spent a lot of time in England. However, I'm not convinced by what I've...

    I finished my reading of all the Conan Doyle earlier this year. As I was reading those I was watching the Basil Rathbone and the Jeremy Brett versions, plus a few others.

    I've only watched the first two series. I don't know if I want to watch series 3 and 4, with completely different actors in the roles.

    I think of this series in contrast to VICTORIA. Where THE...

    I really don't find the standard super-hero stuff to be all that interesting anymore. Some really handsome, white, straight male with big muscles and perfect teeth can solve any problem, gets all the...

    Where do people get this idea that Denny O'Neil created the "modern serious" Batman? I grant you that O'Neil had a hand in the development of Batman in the 1970s, mainly as a writer, and then again...

    On Saturdays, I try to watch an episode of DOCTOR WHO. I'm currently up to the Second Doctor and I've been watching the episodes of "The Web of Fear." I'm happy to have this chance to watch the...

    The Green Arrow ish was good for having a Mike Grell cover and, being a Giant, it included two reprints (from 1942 and 1958). The 12 Labours story was by the always good Elliot S! Maggin and the...

    The bio you give is the one that has slowly developed over the last couple of decades (with some exceptions for shifts in continuities and realities). So it might now be time for a writer to sit down...

    What do you want? She grew up a normal woman, in a normal family. That's her origin. Lois Lane is supposed to be the grounded character in contrast to Superman--she shouldn't have an out of this...

    Do people mix apples and oranges together, like in a fruit salad? I rarely ever do and when I do, I realize it was a mistake. Apples and oranges seem to want to stick to their own provinces. Apples...

    Not a personal attack on you Vordan, but I see this spelling error so often, yours just gives me the chance to call it out, so maybe some folks will stop making it. Of course, this kind of error...

    A lot of comic book stores I've visited are in very small locations. You're constantly having to squeeze past other people. It's probably a consequence of owners making very little money, so they...

    I remember that Batman-Superman scene as being the time when Batman became a putz, as he still is to this day. Before that, writers had no problem teaming up Superman and Batman, but after that it...

    Wha? Are you saying you've never read them before? Or are you just going back to them again? I've already said how much I like those books. Not every decade was totally satisfying--some get pretty...

    In Vancouver, I sometimes hear Dwight Yoakam on the radio--telling how they rescued another person that got stranded in the mountains. It happens all the time.

    To be honest, I'm more shocked to learn he's 39. How'd that happen--he used to be so young.
