    I thought his debut story was way better than everything that came after it. He’s a meme now, rather than a character.

    I can understand that. Tim Drake is my favorite character, and and I still buy his appearances even though I haven’t liked how they’ve used him since before the New 52. Gotta stop that — at a certain...

    I’ve been debating dropping modern DC, but I realized just now that maybe I just need to change how I engage with it. I’ve always viewed myself as a monthly comic fan, more interested in small-scale...

    Not pointless — ultimately harmful. Ushered in an age where comics are more concerned about continuity and cataclysmic events than good monthly storytelling.

    Yeah, the leather suits donít look practical or comfortable for running. They seem too stiff and bulky, and they bunch up in awkward ways.

    IMO, the old stigma about superhero spandex matters less...

    The late Ď70s is a great time for Superman. The storytelling is more sophisticated, and the supporting cast more fleshed out, but there is still room for whimsy like a space cowboy on a flying horse....

    Yes, yes, yes ó original versions, please.

    I don’t understand why DC’s floppies targeting kids tend to be so obviously kiddy. Comics traditionally weren’t like that, even when kids were the predominant audience. And I, as a kid, would have...

    If youíre willing to indulge the idea, even Bob Kane could be called a fan-turned-pro, as thereís a direct line from the Shadow to Batman. Kane, Siegel and Shuster ó all young guys drawing on their...

    Early comics ported over a massive amount of stuff from pulp magazines, properties such as the Shadow and sci-fi such as Buck Rogers. So even the earliest writers had genre influences not too...

    TBH, I think the Reeve films have been damaging to the comic character in the long run. Itís like if Batman never escaped the shadow of Adam West. George Reeves is a much better representation of...
  12. I hope you’re right. But the direct market...

    I hope you’re right. But the direct market consists of small businesses that are already skating by on razor-thin margins. I won’t be surprised if it’s dead in four months.

    That said, I have...

    Sure it does. If digital comics have sufficient audience to be profitable, they will continue. If they don’t, they won’t. At this point, I fear print is facing a true catastrophe. Maybe I am...

    If people refuse to buy anything other than print comics, and there is no longer a distribution network for print comics, that means there will be no print comics ... and quite possibly no comics,...

    How many shops could stand to lose even 25% of sales for two months or more? I imagine most will lose substantially more than that. Even if DC manages to move some product to stores, this is looking...

    Demanding print and only print, though, may be the end of print.

    For those arguing against continuing digitally (and anyone else who wants to answer): How long do you think print comics can be paused before the direct market collapses?

    I stopped worrying about the longevity of digital when I finally accepted I was unlikely to ever reread the vast, vast majority of issues. There’s too much out there, and very few modern comics are...

    Every story with Tim Drake by Tynion, and most of Tim’s appearances after the New 52.

    I have continued buying print because I like getting a physical product and want to support the floppy format. But I absolutely would go digital if they continue that way. If there is a long gap of...

    I think that’s pure practicality. Comics no longer seem like a viable business long-term, even setting aside the pandemic. It’s like supporting your local newspaper — it’s great to do so, but even...

    If there is a long pause in print publication — three to six months or more — I wonder how many readers would come back. And how many stores would still be there to sell to them?

    I worry that the...

    Grummett is the definitive artist for both Tim and Superboy, in my book. I love his art.

    I enjoyed the hops around the Multiverse. But I wouldn't call this issue a "crazy adventure" or even an adventure at all. It was a bunch of pinup pages of Warlord recapping his history and then some...

    I enjoyed seeing Grell's art, but featuring it seemed to be the sole reason for this issue to exist. Is Warlord getting a book again? I'd rather have read about the YJ characters -- they're already...
