    I like it for this story. Nothing wrong with myriad special costumes, Batman has a new one every month. But I'm partial to seeing Wally in dark red.

    When I read these, oh some 16 years ago, it was back to back in the nice editions everyone could find at Barnes & Noble, my friend had both, I read them both cover to cover in one sitting. So to me...

    A couple of thread wrap-ups for specific characters do seem to have no follow-up or maybe would have got follow-up in the projected initial run story or if it hadn't been smart to wrap things up now....

    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...

    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'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...

    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 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.
