    Marketing. Didio and Harras love making everything short and easy and small so they can market it.
  2. There's a very fun Silver Age feeling to the...

    There's a very fun Silver Age feeling to the writing and art which shines through, I think! I especially loved the "Superman splits into Clark and Kal" story - King told me at AwesomeCon this year...
  3. I had not considered Helena as a possible thing...

    I had not considered Helena as a possible thing going forward...but it would be pretty fascinating!



    I'd be REALLY worried if they kept her a toddler, because of what happened to Lian (and Sin)...
  4. I love how each story, no matter how wacky, is...

    I love how each story, no matter how wacky, is all about the theme that Superman Never Gives Up. It's so inspiring! And much as Kubert isn't my favorite, he's turning in really powerful pages here,...
  5. I feel like I haven't quite contributed the kind...

    I feel like I haven't quite contributed the kind of content to the board recently that I wanted to when I started it - I hope that as we transition to Bat/Cat, I'll be able to give deeper analysis...
  6. I've heard that a lot...but sometimes, after...

    I've heard that a lot...but sometimes, after decades of getting "what we didn't know we wanted" which turns into "what we definitely didn't want," it's nice to have a writer who actually does give us...

    So, here’s what we learned from Tom King on Batman Day:

    https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status/1175463221035188225 “As I do on Batman day each year, let me know if you have Batman questions and I’ll...

    I dunno. I think you can insert all of 78-79 between the Paris scenes and the final page of Bat and Cat, and it makes sense.
  9. Hmm. I feel like Tynion has a lot better plotting...

    Hmm. I feel like Tynion has a lot better plotting and arc skills than Lobdell, and doesn't try for as many things that backfire. That probably makes him "safe", but as a huge fan of his, I feel like...
  10. It's true that he gave more space to the argument...

    It's true that he gave more space to the argument against Batman. And that's probably a weakness. I just sort of assumed all the things I personally believe about Batman's argument in my head. :)

  11. King is doing a sort of AMA thing on twitter!...

    King is doing a sort of AMA thing on twitter! I'll definitely try to post my favorite answers here when I think it's wrapped up! But people should go ask questions! I got one answered!
  12. They were really good ones! I can't wait till we...

    They were really good ones! I can't wait till we have #12 and we can rank all the parts and see how the story all pieces together (though #11 showed a lot of it!)
  13. Ah, cool. I got all the Walmart issues, so I've...

    Ah, cool. I got all the Walmart issues, so I've read the whole thing. I'm jealous of the floppy readers, though, because you get Conner covers!

    I think it's kind of overly pulpy and not super deep...
  14. Interesting - I never felt Bruce's perspective...

    Interesting - I never felt Bruce's perspective was dragged down or unfair. Even though Steph is my favorite character, I always felt Batman had the right perspective (given the situation in Gotham),...
  15. Interesting. I did find myself having to get used...

    Interesting. I did find myself having to get used to the way Tynion sets up arcs - the second arc was supposed to be about Steph, and she didn't really have much to do until the third issue - but...
  16. FINALLY! I managed to get Superman Giant #15 (I...

    FINALLY! I managed to get Superman Giant #15 (I really wish King hadn't fallen behind), and I really, really loved Up in the Sky #11! It really utilized the themes of Superman that King's been going...
  17. So, "Come Back to Me" has finished in the Walmart...

    So, "Come Back to Me" has finished in the Walmart anthologies, and is being collected in single issues! What do people think?
  18. For Batman Day, my store had all their DC...

    For Batman Day, my store had all their DC non-release-week merchandise 60% off, so I bought a bunch of back issues! I hope, next year or in the next few years, Batman Day will feature one of King's...
  19. Alfred and Gordon are essential, too, but Robin...

    Alfred and Gordon are essential, too, but Robin is, to me, the incarnation of Batman's inspirational potential, rather than two father-figure types. He's creating a new family, building something. I...
  20. What I would say is the heart of the "problem"...

    What I would say is the heart of the "problem" with Tynion is that he didn't write an arc for Bruce. He wrote an arc for every other character - Kate with the Colony and her dad, Tim with the...
  21. I agree that you have to have Dick, Jason, Tim,...

    I agree that you have to have Dick, Jason, Tim, AND STEPH start at around 14-16. But Damian is deliberately constructed by Morrison to be the most "plausible" 10-year-old elite crime fighting...
  22. I actually agree that the execution of Tynion's...

    I actually agree that the execution of Tynion's Tec run sometimes slipped, even if it's in my top ten runs of all time. I'm worried that he got burnt out on the Batfam...but I hope he has the same...

    Well, I might not drop Batman after King leaves now!!!!
