    Well, Detective Comics Comics is kind of a strange name for an entire comics publishing company...especially one that doesn't publish that many detective stories.

    Yep, I suppose it's easy to be remembered as "DC Comics" when you have "DC" stamped on all of your big eight comics early on.

    Yeah, but you can see that in the indicia, the publisher was National Comics Publications--which later became National Periodical Publications.



    Of course, in the old days, publishers used many different corporate names, probably for slippery legal and financial reasons. DC's romance comics had the National Romance Group imprint on the covers, yet in the indicia they were reputed to be a product of the Arleigh Publishing Corporation.

    I've recently come to the realization that I think I'm over Grant Morrison. He may be one of the most overhyped (I wouldn't necessarily say overrated) writers working in comics. He's becoming like the comics equivalent of Star Wars (the movies) or Christopher Nolan for me.

    Not comics-centric, but the Young Justice cartoon is dragged down by overly melodramatic dialog and line readings.

    I've loved the season so far but I gotta concur on that one. it's mainly passable for me but it becomes more noticable with Beast Boy, which really takes me out of it.

    Controversial opinion? I hate whenever they emphasis the legacy aspect.

    I think the storylines are well-conceived and pretty strong. But some of the dialog and voice acting (not EVERONE, mind you) reminds of the most grating anime dubs.

    I really didn't think 'Batman & Robin' was that bad or that DC is bad at movies in general.

    If you know what you're getting into, B&R is a blast.

    Honestly, I get entertainment out of it. I don't really get that from the Nolan movies, which are objectively superior films but don't have the crazy fun I crave from Batman.
