    I believe he's occasionally cruelly shot goons in cold blood when they question him dating back to the Golden Age but the actual 'schtick' of looking up and purging old henchmen definitely began with...

    It was with this issue that I realized that Joker's random killing of henchmen, while both ironically funny and Jokerly cruel and consistent with maintaining his psycho reputation ... has never...

    I like that it's a collection of Batman Anthologies and isn't strictly linked to some kind of current canon.

    Oh man, specifics. For me weirdly enough Bendis's big Bat-Family crime scene class room...

    I think no, and I think I have a good reason why beyond just "They're classic" and "Flash has two "tiers" of villains, classic, and kind of anti-Flash meta".

    Barry Allen is a CSI. Each of the...

    I didn't warm up to the first few issues of New Aphra. But I don't really mind the thin characterization, and the plot points of bringing in the Tagge ... Dynasty? definitely appeals to me as a Tagge...

    Yeah, something weird is definitely going on in the Anti-Matter Universe ... or ... Reversoverse as he's calling it ... or Negative Zone as they say. And Anti-Hal Jordan definitely seems to be at the...

    I think it's been an okay-to-mid-tier run altogether. There's some nice stuff but also some stuff that didn't mesh well or felt weird in the pacing. I'm sure my pros and cons lists would be about...

    There's the meta-ridiculous and then the in-story-ridiculous behind these things, right?

    I always thought Mister Mind evolving into a cosmic nightmare because he was aware the Multiverse was back...

    I've been thinking about this in a meta sense a lot lately because of Superboy Prime's reappearance. I'm all for timey-wimey hijinx and good continuity clean-up but obviously that doesn't prevent the...

    A challenging exercise. How magical do I get to be?

    Superman.
    It's a product of its time and a film I absolutely adore. I have one tweak and then one kind of honorable mention/suggestion. I'll...

    Oh this was good.

    Make no mistake, it's a huge head-ache to try to think of how it all fits together even a little, even for me, who was there reading it all as it happened ... but I'm so glad...

    It's been a minute since I've looked at it, but I thought Flash Forward at least gave a tacit reasoning for the Speed Force explosion that somewhat absolved Wally of it. Trauma of course causing a...

    I've loved this incredibly solid run of Flash.

    Didn't expect the Eobard Thawne retcon of like every dumb thing that's happened in recent history but I love it. Good continuity clean-up there. It...

    So Three Jokers.

    I've read it once now. I have thoughts but they're very unformed thoughts, which I deem appropriate because it's 1 part of 3 and I truly don't care to speculate, I'd rather take...

    So that a good actor gets to play a death scene? Or rather, build up a character nicely so that they're "kinda" likable then get a death scene?

    Devotion to the original Ostrander premise.

    Orlando's Wonder Woman run ... runs? Hodge podge? Smattering? Has been low-key, stealth one of the best Wonder Woman runs of all time. It's so weird but kind of anecdotal that it's so under-the-radar...

    I'm never a huge fan of when a writer or editorial are like "Oh no, plot holes! The Crisis is creating plot holes!" I understand the weirdly cherished history of that being the nature of a DCU...
