    I'd like to see more positivity about DC Entertainment right now, I think they're moving in a great direction in most areas (except the CW shows). Problem is that it's harder to have a discussion when everyones comments are unanimously positive. There has to be some kind of dissent for it to last. Cause there's only so many times you can say "this is amazing, I love this" before it's just boring.

    I encourage you to start them! But I also think several threads I've seen popping up (like the Batwing vs Harper Row thread, several of the preview threads) have been pretty positive as well.

    Totally agree. But I think a solid analysis can point out new things, so even if two people agree that something is good, there can be things learned if people are willing to go deeper than just "hey, that was great." That's why I started posting in response to the "I wish people didn't analyze so much" thread here. Because I don't think a shallower approach is going to improve the community.

    I think this board is pretty good because there's several erudite posters who disagree but don't get personal in their criticisms. And yeah, you can kind of tell that Batman fans are spoiled when it comes to good writing, and that's reflected on this board. This board probably has the heaviest concentration of people who didn't like Morrison's, Snyder's, Lobdell's, or Tynion's writing in the last few years, but they still tend to express themselves thoughtfully, and generally acknowledge why the runs are still popular.

    You want to see less spoiled readers? Just go take a peak at the Superman board.

    Yeah, this board is pretty good and there are a lot of posters that at the very least give their reasoning for why they dislike something while at the same time acknowledging that other do. I don't take issue with that since people don't always like the same things. So long as you take the time to explain yourself I'm good. Its the other type that I can't stand.

I think that merits a lot of work understanding and trying to appreciate as well - and that comes with a certain amount of criticism. I would agree that it should be all criticism, and definitely not just complaining, but I think a community where we all agree and just say, "Yay, new book" every week isn't very appealing.
    Thanks, this is exactly what I'm trying to expose. I'm completely agree with this.

    Now you mention that, this reminds me the discussion about Damian in Jason Todd thread. I hope you didn't be irritated for that, and if was the case I apologize.

    I wasn't irritated with you. Far from it. I was a bit frustrated at myself actually because I don't think I really phrased things the way I intended to. Sometimes the words I want to use just don't come. I hope I didn't offend you and if I did I likewise apologize.

    Don't worry buddy, all fine. I didn't feel irritated. I was enjoyed our discussion about Jason and Damian.

    Turning to Tim and Rebirth, it has emerged me an idea. In the Rebirth issue we saw as Bruce found the letter from his father of the other universe and the pin of The Comedian. Assuming that Mr. Oz is Ozymandias and it was he who has been leaving bread crumbs, you think that would be interesting to Bruce or other character will found the Rorschach journal, who sent to the publisher at the end of Watchmen?

    Apart from providing some clues in the plot, for the heroes (not directly none of them knows about them), it might be interesting the clash of views. Watchmen is a distopic universe where the influence of the heroes had a negative impact on society. I would like to see the view of a hero or heroes about it, reading the journal.

In this case it makes it so you can't just enjoy the moment. You see the flaws because you've trained yourself too, so you have to find other ways of enjoying it. Nothing wrong with it but it can some times put a crimp in how you enjoy a work.
    This is what I was really trying to say. Thanks
