    One issue with Donna's origin is that it's so dependant on things in Diana's origin and worldbuilding. Like how long has Diana been active in Man's World? Is it possible for her to get to Themyscira,...

    Now when I think of it, Power Girl is probably the closest thing to She-Hulk that DC has: power level at the highest end, a combo of brawniness and fan service, being smarter than they look, and the...

    Am I certain it is due to DC interoffice politics? No. But I certainly wouldn't say it's not the case. For marketing in this respect, that is to booksellers and retailers, then it's probably easier...

    Congratulations, Shalla Bal!

    I'm a little surprised my Bolland cover didn't get any mentions—it's usually a sure bet. Maybe it was a too early one? And I've also noted that non-US covers tend to...

    Under the Moon and Raven were certainly written with hooks for followups.

    My impression is that the editorial philosophy for Ink and Zoom is extremely different from the rest of DC. Writers get a...

    I think the reason they're mostly doing origin stories is partly because most superheroes have one great story, and that's the origin story. Another factor is of course that YA literature tends to be...

    Good question.

    For DC Ink, I think it makes more sense to look at writers rather than trying to look at continuities. Batman: Nightwalker and Batman: Gotham High seems to be going for very...

    I'm not demanding perfection. But I think there are characterisations that go counter to everything that the character is about.

    In the case of Oracle, I think one such key is that Babs-as-Oracle...

    Once you add in all the trades and collections that DC publishes, the output from Zoom and Ink is rather small.

    Now, you're correct in that the old guard aren't worried about the Zoom and Ink...

    I think Rucka continues to tell the tale well, and the art continues to be top-notch and atmospheric, but at the same time I agree with the others that the story seems to have lost track of who Lois...
