    King's a great writer. One of the best in my opinion.

    Comics are a visual medium, so bad art would of course ruin stories no matter how good the script was. But thankfully the comics medium has...

    Yeah, I think Batman Annual #2 makes King's intentions for the marriage clear.

    But between the 5G plans and Didio's departure, it's anyone's guess what the future holds.

    I do wonder how King...

    I think in a lot of ways it's a throwback to a time when the target audience was teenage boys, so of course the assumption was that marriage would be less interesting than constant romantic...

    I think there's an inherent anti-marriage bias at the top levels in comic book companies based on the mistaken perception that you lose dramatic potential because the hero no longer has romantic...

    On another note, I think there are interesting parallels between the hype surrounding Batman's wedding and Spider-Man's.

    With King, it seems to have been a fake-out from the get-go. That said, I...

    The Joker best man storyline has some of King's best dialogue, not surprising given that religion seems to come as naturally to him as romance. He really does his strongest work in those areas.

    Was she trained by an assassin? For some reason I was thinking she mostly self-taught. I'm probably wrong about this, I'm mostly going off vague memories of 90s comics and her JLU appearances.

    I thought this film was a lot of fun. And I was surprised by how efficient the characterization was. Everyone felt fully developed with clear motivations and backstories in spite of not getting as...

    The "Master Bruce" origin story is probably my least favorite of King's Batman. It just feels rushed and unearned.

    I really enjoyed this film! I was surprised by how efficient the characterization was. Every character felt fully realized in spite of not being front and center for a good chunk of the film.

    The annual is probably my favorite issue of King's entire run, and that's impressive to say the least.

    Also, a perfect read for Valentine's!

    I think Iris' competence has gone up dramatically post-Crisis, even before the mirror episode. I'm really liking the direction they've taken her reporting on the show. And I think the aspects that...

    I feel like Gwen Stacy's a problematic character to retroactively address since her characterization was relatively flat during the Lee/Romita years and the stuff that sticks out doesn't reflect well...

    In terms of the approach to the overall line, it's one of my favorite eras. I really like how every creative team got to do their own thing. It was nice to take an extended break from the crossovers....

    I can't recall, is it ever said she's fallen on hard times financially? I thought the focus was more her disillusionment and if so, the desert setting fits her attempt to recast herself as a rugged...

    Alfred is comparable to a parent whose child has chosen military or police service. He's very proud and he recognizes the important work that Bruce does, but he'd prefer Bruce have a more normal and...

    I don't think the CW's Oliver Queen was ever a liberal icon. This actually seemed like a point of frustration for Amell, who, going by his comments, wanted to lean into that aspect of the character...

    I'm curious why the housekeepers got left behind, too, given that Raffi said things were about to get hotter. Are we to believe that they'll be left alone once Picard is gone? Seems unlikely given...

    It's also by the ASM creative team and references events from ASM. So I'd say it's definitely canon.

    There's a huge difference between 'hard to get hold of' and impossible. The cyclical nature of comics demands that Norman gets varying levels of comeuppance, a constant rising and falling like...

    Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed most if not all of the stories listed here. But I think Norman is at his strongest as a legacy of evil, the anti-Uncle Ben corrupting everything he touches from...

    I really like that stretch of Norman Osborn stories from around 1974 to 1995. They're all so good!

    I mean, Tony Stark also arguably makes a lot of sense as an evil version of Tony Stark.

    He clearly didn't fail as a designer...the public failed to recognize his genius!
