    A great article by Jeannette Ng: Confessions of a Hate Reader, or Bad Writing Habits I Picked up from Bad Criticism. To take just one of its observations:

    I think they all deserve credit for this, and I think it speaks for that there are different strengths for writers. Ostrander and Yale had the imagination to come up with the concept of Oracle and...

    Thanks!

    One of the things that strikes me when reading the old Birds of Prey stories is that Chuck Dixon has very good storytelling instincts. He gets the interplay between characters; he groks...

    Some thoughts on the various stories.

    Orlando and Merino: I liked the way Diana regained the Golden Lasso, but a lot of the story otherwise falls flat. The dialogue feels more like contending...

    Having Hippolyta active in Man's World before Diana messes too much with Diana's origin. I don't see time travel or time loops as a good solution, since they intrinsically break the narrative...

    I think there are some clear differences between how these writers use those tropes. Wilson doesn't frame the intervention as moral, and has Diana act as an agent for diplomacy in her story. She also...

    As a story, not much. Reasonably tense and exciting action, if a bit repetitive at times. Art was mediocre (at least to me). Dialogue was one-note. Basically a filler story to read once. But it has a...

    One Script, Many Artists

    Twitter user Project Art Cred managed a cool thing: have a single writer (Kieron Gillen) write a script for a one-page comic with five frames, and have several different writers illustrate it.

    Why? It's not like Harley as a character has any agency or decision making power here. That rests solely with the publishers, editors, and writers at DC.

    And I think there is a really strong trend...

    Now, will Snyder go really meta, and have Sam Moskowitz block Diana at a door, or have her run into Ray Bradbury, Julie Schwarz, Forry Ackerman, or Myrtle Douglas?

    I'm going to go out and call bullshit on that.

    What used to be the case was that mainly white dudes were allowed to be heroes. Opening that up to other people and groups is a good thing.

    Interesting find! (It's on the second paragraph of the third column.) To me it reads like a rather blatant attempt at a retcon, but I can't claim there is no support in the published works.

    Prices is but one factor. The other is the limited distribution channels. There is a reason why DC's Zoom and Ink lines aren't in the floppy form factor and distribution format.
