    I saw her around Vancouver a couple of times. She isn't short like a lot of actors but she is really skinny, almost alarmingly so. When you see her walking around on her teeny legs, the thought of...

    Sorry to hear that. Losing a pet sucks.

    Anyway, regardless of how anyone feels about Snyder and his movies, this is pretty crazy news. I hope they go with the six part miniseries, new dialogue,...

    Thanks, that's fantastic information. I've only read Metal and the main JL title so I guess I have some catching up to do. Hopefully there's a relevant Comixology sale soon.

    I know in that interview, he says you can come into this thing fresh without following eg Justice League or whatever, but I imagine it would be pretty confusing. Does anyone have a recommended...

    Yeah, that is just a great reference. I was a teenager when that episode happened. My parents were diehard fans of the show and I can still remember my mother shrieking at the big reveal.

    Spoilers...

    Gerry Conway's run, which treated Batman and Detective Comics as a single title. Stories started in one would finish in the other, effectively making Batman a bi-weekly title for a time. Conway had...

    Don Newton was the greatest. That's another story where Batman gets captured and nearly killed by a pretty ordinary bunch of guys. Of course, even when captured, the bad guy just antagonizes him...

    She was a backup in Detective Comics for a while. Most of these stories were pretty ho-hum, but 518-519 stand out because of the fantastic Trevor von Eeden artwork:

    Yeah, I like it too. But it's eccentric and likely requires familiarity with the source material. A lot of casual moviegoers apparently found it bewildering, as did a lot of critics, although it's at...

    In no particular order:

    1. A History of Violence (based on the 1997 Vertigo title)
    2. The Dark Knight
    3. Joker
    4. Superman 78
    5. Watchmen

    Yeah, good point. It is pre-Crisis in spirit, if not chronologically. That's probably why I liked it so much. Regardless, such a fun and unique run whose potential was somewhat squandered.

    I grew up with pre-Crisis everything but I only prefer some of it. In particular, my favourite Superman is, believe it or not, Morrison's from the New 52 Action Comics run. I absolutely loved it.

    Well, she hardly speaks, which is kind of an issue in film. Obviously it's doable but it would require a more nuanced approach than you find in a typical comic book movie. I do agree that her movie...

    Haha, I thought he looked like a green version of the ever-lovin' Thing. And his head was a gigantic melon. But hey, to each their own.

    A fair point, and I pretty much was waving my arms around when I typed that. It's tough to define. I felt Nolan's Dark Knight movies captured the spirit of Batman, despite their departure from canon....

    Yes, and also comic book fans tend to vastly overestimate their market value. The number of people who read BoP regularly makes up a vanishingly small percentage of paying moviegoers. Who cares about...

    To paraphrase, the death of one person is a tragedy, the death of a million people (or a city) is a statistic. So I tend not to get too invested in the "big" stories. On the other hand, it's kind of...

    Reading digitally is like browsing with an adblocker. I find print comics sort of jarring now.

    Yeah, I agree with this. The best parts are the dialogue and banter between the characters. There's a lot of humanity there. And the story beats are well-timed, but the overall story is kind of...

    He kind of needs the equivalent of Born Again, a real before/after set of events that defines him as an independent adult. The super-spy stuff was so unique and fresh and I think it should be brought...

    I love grass-roots Batman and I'm happy his new ride is a souped-up muscle car. Gets the job done, '80s style. Minimising gadgetry and Lucas Fox's super-genius ability to invent "prototypes" that...

    Still a little too gadgety for my liking, but I like Tynion's dialogue a lot. Some good character moments too. He seems like a more confident writer these days. And as a lover of an ambiguously...

    Does anyone have any idea when the final trade will be released? Looking forward to a re-read of this series.

    Tynion seems like a nice guy and he often nails dialogue. But overall this feels like something a fan would write, and that's never a good thing.
