    Another game classic, though maybe at the tail end of the period… and still as addictive as when it was new.

    I have very little faith in Azzarello's ability to write women, and now the Birds of Prey are pushed even more into just another bunch of Gotham vigilantes.

    Very much agreed. In a way, making Catwoman a former prostitute sort of goes against what I think the character is about: a woman in control of her own sexuality, and when she uses it it is for her...

    A really interesting one that I doubt many of you here have heard about: Dotty Virvelvind ("Dotty Whirlwind"). She was created by Sture Lönnerstrand, who was probably the first genre-aware writer of...

    Not sure about that, the act you linked was close-in stuff and mainly to look visually impressive. No catching, no tripping, no tossing. I'm sure there are ways to improve the use of the lasso, but...

    I do think Rucka can do at least one more Wonder Woman story, and a no-holds-barred, out-of-continuity story would probably be the best way to bring that about.

    Tricky story to discuss.

    Part of this is the malleable nature of Empress Hippolyta and Dimension Chi, which seems to have little relation to what we saw in the previous issue. If the phrase "I let...

    I'm not sure I'd want this to be ongoing books in any case. One to three issues, certainly no more than six. In a way, I'd say Hiketeia should be a model: one-off stories that explore the conflict...

    WestPhillyPunisher for including both Lady Bug and ladybugs on the cover. A honourable mention to Ravin' Ray with a lady who bugs me.

    Ask Gail Simone and Stjepan Sejic to go all in on Marston. I think they'd complement each other well on the writing side, so I can even see them banging out the stories Marvel-style. Of course,...

    It's rather more complex than that.

    One factor is that DC is a business that can and should be called out for shitty business practices, just like any other business. Gail Simone did nothing wrong...
