    I think one of the developments that weakened the compulsion to get your books every month was the explosion of trade paperbacks. And since these were often much cheaper than buying the floppies--and...

    For most of my comics reading life, there was always one comic, but a different comic every year, that kept me invested in buying comics. I would think to myself, okay I could give up all these other...

    I think, unlike other topic titles, this one is neutral. And it's the question that got me interested in reading the thread. Because you can generalize that question to all things in life. Is there a...

    I didn't know it was established that Krypton died because of something they did. I know that there have been various stories that said this, but always different explanations and none of those ever...

    There are different iterations of the Joker, so D.C. doesn't have to stick with the mass murderer. The original Joker and the one in the "5 Way Revenge" was a guy on a vendetta against specific...

    Even if I'm not reading a lot of the new comics, by staying on this message board and being engaged with the conversation about the comics, I can stay reasonably up to date with ongoing continuity...

    I feel that the loss of Krypton should be a great tragedy. But a lot of modern takes on Krypton make it seem like the worst place in the universe this side of Apokolips and they had what was coming...

    It's kind of cumulative and the result of different things. There was a time when I was in difficult financial straits and I had to make hard choices about where I put my money (mainly toward food...

    By decade, it would be the 1970s, the 1960s, the 1940s, the 1930s, the 1980s, the 1950s, the 1990s, in that order. As far as the 2000s go, there are some runs and titles I liked but not a whole lot.

    I could have expressed my point better. Science is important to science fiction; it provides ideas that can be the springboard for a story. But at a certain point, the writer has to abandon the deep...

    You've turned it around. The starting point of Paradise Island is a world where women have lived together for thousands of years, in loving relationships, where no men exist. Diana grows up in that...

    I guess I'm the odd one out here, because I like the version of Krypton from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s. The Buck Rogers aspect of it is a virtue--if it's cheese, it's a fromage point...

    Given that William Moulton Marston lived with two women and fathered children by both of them, a loving relationship between Steve, Diana and Mala would probably be his idea of perfection. And...

    I don't believe George Reeves committed suicide.

    Richard the Lionheart was not a good as he's painted as being. King John was not as bad. Richard III was not as bad.

    There's something...

    I wonder if the cut that was released is the same as what was supposed to come out originally. I think if it had come out when it was supposed to, it would have landed better. Now, it feels off to...

    2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is one of the two Kubrick movies that I truly love. The other being DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB. As best as I can remember, I never saw...

    I remember there was this bit of lore, that came up during the exile in space, which said Kryptonians were bound to Krypton, they couldn't leave. I think the loophole for Superman was that he wasn't...

    If anything, characters on T.V. shows have too many changes of clothes. Unless they're rich, people usually are limited in how many sets of clothes they wear--on a T.V. show they should be going...

    Like I said, I think it's the Peter Principle--being promoted to ones level of incompetence. Just because someone has a set of creative skills doesn't mean they have a set of management skills. It's...

    The very ending of THE GRADUATE completely turns the tables at the conclusion of the movie and gives us something to think about. And . . . it's inspired by a silent movie.

    In defense of disco, Nightwing's was never a disco costume. Dick didn't take on the Nightwing persona until 1984, by which time disco was long dead. I should know, I was king of the disco dance floor...

    After the Snyder Cut is aired, I'd like an animated series to complete the story, with all the actors voicing their characters--including Cavill and Affleck. That seems like something that could be...

    The scene that lifts Donner's SUPERMAN (1978) up beyond a comic book movie to a universal movie--and one of the reasons I think Geoffrey Unsworth should have posthumously won the Oscar for best...
