    Superman and Batman look as silly without them as they ever did with them.

    Funny how spandex and garish chest graphics and capes (and gloves and masks) somehow don't look silly...but the underwear...

    What didn't make sense?

    I had no problems understanding the continuity of DC or Marvel during the Silver and Bronze ages. DC snafu'd after 1986 and Marvel didn't snafu until the 1990s.

    If it's "set within this [New52] continuity" then what's the point? How is it a rebirth? Something fundamental's gotta change, otherwise the whole thing is a temporary bump in sales and then right...

    Sounds like a plan to me!

    But I fear the 'iconic interpretation' thing won't happen. I'm betting they align the books to match the movies and tv shows.

    Not sure what will happen with titles...

    I was downright giddy about the REAL Barry Allen returning! Didn't love his rewritten backstory (mom's murder), but definitely LOVED the 'man out of time' approach. Barry was now going to be DC's...

    I've waited forever to see Micronauts (and ROM) again... and I'm very apprehensive about these new titles.

    Dear God don't let them suck!!!!

    I hate it when writers contrive plots where Batman defeats Superman.

    It's like reading a story where a butterfly kills Godzilla. Just because you can string those events together doesn't make...

    Sometimes, the best career decision is in what you turn down.

    Don't do it if you're not "all in." I don't want any Star Wars or superhero movies made by people who don't absolutely LOVE and...

    Not true when Didio is involved.

    He's done more damage to the DCU than a hundred Anti-Monitors could EVER do!
  10. I respect you coming here and admitting a...

    I respect you coming here and admitting a mistake. I think Busiek went through something similar when he wrote the Artie-Joe "Sword of Atlantis" run.

    As a lifelong DC customer, I've suffered...
  11. The "Earth 2" JSA series I would want would be...

    The "Earth 2" JSA series I would want would be set in 1951... after the last superhero cancellation of the Golden Age, and go from there.

    It would ignore all the JSA stuff written afterward. Not...
  12. EVERYTHING has been done in this genre. So by...

    EVERYTHING has been done in this genre. So by your logic, it ALL needs shut down....and let people just dig out "old comics" to read.

    Costumes? DONE.
    Super-powers? DONE.
    Secret identities? ...

    In the 70s it was stated that they treated Earth 2 as being 20 years behind Earth 1, meaning the JSA stories were set in the 1950s. But that didn't stop Roy Thomas from doing All-Star Squadron that...
  14. The end of the Very First Superhero Universe in...

    The end of the Very First Superhero Universe in human history was a catastrophic mistake IMO. Why DC would throw that in the trash, something that no one else has and can never be repeated, is...

    I've not been burned either (6 projects).

    Be sure that they can actually produce what they're promising. I mean, if they say a you'll get a 32 page comic, then that's reasonable.

    Just keep...

    Not unfair by much.

    Dark Horse started on a shoestring budget and built up the line. Marvel hit the gate with some of the best talent in the industry (or so they claimed). If you can afford the...

    Easily the best. Al Williamson was the best comic artist to ever touch Star Wars. Lucas wanted him from the start but he was busy with the Secret Agent X-9 strip. The Classic Star Wars comic was a...

    I love SW, but don't act like there's no bigotry already in it.

    The ONE oversized guy in the whole original trilogy is named "Jek PORKins." Lucas may as well have named him Fatty McLardo Fatfuk....

    Here's the formula:

    Read the comics. Film the comics. Fans happy, movie makes millions.
  20. Some of that could be possible (ideas, themes,...

    Some of that could be possible (ideas, themes, basic stories). Some of it won't be.

    For example, no way IDW gets to reprint a panel of Marvel's characters. So quite a few issues, and much of the...

    The success of the toy is totally beside the point. Point is, there's a lot of the ROM concept that Marvel doesn't own.

    If Marvel allows IDW to use all the 'particulars' I'll be surprised and...

    IDW, you're stealing my dream!

    Back in the 90s (when I was a budding comic artist), my writer friend Gary Francis tried to get the comic book rights to ROM from Parker Brothers. We didn't get far...

    I'd be first in line to buy a ROM Artists' Edition.

    You have have made three major jumps since you got here: One Year Later, Infinite Crisis, New52. And a month or so ago, you had another shift across the line of "bold new directions" to get away...

    Doesn't sound too bad.

    But the medieval weaponry is just dumb. Doesn't fit him at all.

    What he can't kill with magic, physical damage won't hurt either. And if he needs physical force, a gun...
