    Probably the best work I’ve ever seen with the Sam Lane character, who in general usually is presented as a J. Jonah Jameson-esque blowhard. Here you can see how much he and Lois are alike - both...

    He didn’t. Thomas only approached Bane on the day of the wedding.

    My first thought when reading this issue was that King was just repeating the formalistic style of the Grayson Futures End book -...

    DC didn’t alter the issue. I don’t know why the reviewer thought that but s/he is completely wrong. It hasn’t been changed.

    This was really interesting. It reads a LOT like the first issue of the O’Neil/ Cowan run, but with some alterations, much like Vic is living the same life over and over again. The mask he finds at...

    She was ill when we last saw her (one of the JrJr issues), and was being tended to by Thomas at Wayne Manor.

    Thomas’ “tea” probably is, well, something other than tea.

    Anyone notice that the Daily Planet/ recap page of Action Comics # 1016 this week included dick.grayson as one of the fictional accounts to follow? Ric presumably doesn’t remember that Twitter...

    I’d like them to remember that, since Batman debuted in Detective Comics # 27, his 1000th appearance is actually in # 1026.

    I know that’s not technically right with the # 0’s, the Batwoman run...

    These kind of things never really work if one takes a linear approach to aging. Inevitably you either end up with characters way older than TPTB would really like them to be, or you get ridiculously...

    Agreed. Mystery Writing 101 - if after you reveal who the bad guy is, you have to take time to explain to the audience who that is, you haven't played fair with the readers. Shaw's never even been...

    Maybe. I'm now wondering if the "biggest secret in the DC Universe" teased earlier in the series relates to the various reality revisions. Could Doomsday Clock end with only Lois and Lex knowing...

    Batman's dialogue makes pretty clear that Thomas being ordered to kill Damian is part of the plan. We know from #79 that Bruce sent Damian into Gotham, so Damian being captured was also part of the...

    I won't pretend to have this whole thing figured out, but I do have some ideas. This is a fun, layered mystery.

    A few months back, the intelligence community specifically targeted Oliver Queen,...

    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...
