    Seeing them omit #65 is a bit disappointing from a completionist standpoint - I think it's fair to guess that if/when we get to Flash by Waid v8 (or maybe they'll call it Flash: The Second True Hero...

    We might be slightly far afield, but it maps much better from Selina's POV (even though it's not her book). Selina is the lower class woman who catches the eye of a prince/duke/nobleman, he's willing...

    I read it . . . oh, maybe around 2001-2002 (whenever the trade came out in that range). Maybe a bit after when DC started the prelude to IC stuff? I'd been reading DC since 1991 or so and read Zero...

    Honestly, it has all the hallmarks of a certain type of romance story (you see it a bit in steampunk, regency romances, and I'm sure other places) - man and woman from different upbringings, fierce...

    Welcome and way to come in hot on your first post!

    I'll repeat myself, but how can you look at Epic Collections sales and not just do the same thing? Maybe don't go as bold as Marvel and just...

    Don't forget Robin v6, Azrael v2, Kyle Rayner v2/3 (I forget which was cancelled), and the high likelihood that Shadow of the Bat is ending at v4

    The nightmare Wonder Women being under-utilized was my biggest (only) complaint about Metal, so hopefully this fulfills the promise of those brief appearances. I assume Death Metal is whatever will...

    Are you saying I should stop waiting for Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) v4?

    Didio's comments seem tone deaf, or at least suggest that they don't understand the most ardent section of their fan base....

    It would be kind of funny if the new Gwen mini actually establishes her having a bit of an evil streak to justify her having gone to Hell to become Kindred. That's be an all-time bait-and-switch by...

    I would assume it's Helena, their child, but also possibly the inspiration for the name (e.g. Helena was someone at the orphanage). No real reason, other than that King's couple has a real...

    This is mostly suggested tongue-in-cheek, but what about the actress that played Aunt May during the Clone Saga? She was hired by Norman, she's been basically forgotten ("barely remembered"), she'd...

    I think if Anakin had appeared (as was rumored) behind Rey while she was fighting Palpatine, it'd have made more sense for him to appear w/his kids. It's a bit of a non sequitur if he only appears...

    My pitch for Traveller would be a sort of Watcher-type figure for the less cosmically inclined Marvel characters - as a student of human behavior and emotion, he appears at times of great upheaval...

    On a completely different note, am I the only one that wants to see someone do a new spin on Judas Traveller and (the) Scrier(s)? Maybe a "Geoff Johns on Green Lantern" style pulling all the pieces...

    In last year's thread, we discussed the re-read having something of a "chunk" format - something like once a week (or so) we'd discuss a storyline or storylines from King's run. This is the...

    It's not that I can't imagine how it might have happened, it's that the way they talk about it strongly suggests there is more to the story than just what is shown in TLJ. Snoke (somehow puppetted...

    Someone more eloquent than me can kind of refine this, but I think another theme (related to the legacy one, but more encompassing) of the ST is overcoming who you could have been. The two legacy...

    I saw a map excerpt that puts Exegol broadly in the same region as Ahch-To (just above in the map linked below, right below the marker for "Unknown Regions"), but I think it was from the TROS Visual...

    This seems pretty right. It's also worth noting how many mindless genre movies critics end up seeing - it's impossible to imagine that the drain of seeing so many mediocre sci-fi and fantasy movies...

    This is wild speculation, but I imagine ROS is largely what JJ had in mind (or outline) for how the next two movies would follow after TFA (replace Luke and the Knights of Ren searching for...

    If all the 5G rumors pan out, it'd seem silly not to keep Bat/Cat around in the short term. Let the fans be happy, make it seem like things will stick for awhile, and if DC feels like un-coupling...

    In some ways, Snyder and Morrison made it easier for King to make the argument for Selina as a true love. One can like or dislike the pairing, but it's very hard to use a modern comic to make an...

    As a quick and dirty rubric, I think the Calendar Man stuff is King, Duke's new costume is Snyder, and the stuff with Fox is probably King but could also be Snyder or Johns' (supposedly a ghost...
