    Otto’s a narcissist. Narcissistic people rewrite their pasts in ways that disassociate them from prior versions of themselves. He’s behaving much better now but he’s still got this character flaw -...

    Continuity is established in stories, not via charts and graphs. DC never stops making this mistake. Having a "Bible" for each character can be useful in establishing basic facts about them, but...

    This is so dumb. The whole storyline seems completely pointless. I still maintain that a story about a superhero having a TBI could be interesting. But that aspect has now been dumbed down to...

    Lex still knows. There’s a reference in the Batman Who Laughs series to the conversation where Lex showed up at Wayne Manor to confront him.

    I recall that too but can’t place it. Maybe it’s a shared hallucination.

    I’ve seen nothing to suggest Superheavy is no longer canon. It’s not referenced much because it’s not relevant to...

    Me neither, although I’ll admit my experience isn’t universal and may not even be typical, given that I’ve been reading for longer than 20-30 years.

    It just strikes me that the closest DC came...

    I’m curious what you guys see as the benefit of a reboot. Is it just about streamlining or fixing continuity, or is there something else?

    I think that was intentional. Conway and Milgrom wanted to invert the Spider-Man dynamic - have the jock be the somewhat insecure hero learning to use his powers, and have him bullied by a nerd. ...

    Yea it explicitly says that Thomas’ monologue is occurring on the day of the wedding. The timing of the fight is more ambiguous I guess.

    I have some thoughts on that. The Janin-illustrated scenes definitely “happened” as they are mostly flashbacks, but perhaps the Fornes scenes are meant to be allegorical rather than literal? This...

    A lot of this discussion presupposes that the purpose of a reboot is to fix continuity. That is rarely the case, no matter how much lip service publishers pay to the same idea. Continuity problems...

    According to the internet, the Direct Market has been on the verge of collapse since the advent of the internet.

    One day I suppose it’ll actually happen. When it does, it’ll probably be something...

    I think it was successful in giving the characters a reset back to clear versions of who the characters are, what their basic relationships are, etc. It has resulted in a weird continuity mishmash...

    Other than Sandman and Fables I don’t know how well Vertigo books have really done outside the DM. Back in the days when I paid attention to such things, people tossed that idea around a lot but the...

    It’s just an imprint. Vertigo has a great history but it’s been moribund for a long time. They’ve tried multiple relaunches that have failed. The brand has zero cache at this point. This doesn’t...

    Yes. He said as much on Twitter.

    Has anyone ever addressed why Jimmy doesn’t remember that Clark is Superman? Did that just get Rebirth-d away?

    Just a thought. Yesterday Detective #1004 and Action #1011 both came out. Detective is shipping twice monthly, Action monthly. If they stay on that schedule, Detective will catch up to Action with...

    Hate to be all negative but this story is really dumb. The logic and plot errors are so bad I’m surprised they got past editorial. Astrid’s parents meet, fall in love, conceive her and bring her to...

    Still time for a swerve but at this point it sure seems like he did it.

    And frankly that’s a great take. He didn’t do it on purpose, but y’know, if you hit people hard enough for long enough,...

    Hayden’s not wearing the mask in the scene at the end of #50. But you are correct that he could have re-acquired it via Bane or Thomas since then. He would have been without it from #20 to #50...

    I wouldn’t say I like it, but the last few issues have at least returned it to “interesting car crash” territory, at least for now.

    If Bane could create another mask, he never would have needed PP in the first place. But yea, he could have re-taken the mask at some point. We see it in the Batcave in # 21 though. The mask’s...

    Psycho Pirate could manipulate Alfred, or Thomas. It’s hard to imagine how he could manipulate, say, Tim Drake though. Or Barbara. Also, Bruce took the Medusa Mask from Hayden after “I Am Bane” -...
