    DC should do a Batman volume similar to the Flash "Trial" volume (jump ahead).

    Who wouldn't buy a Batman Showcase of Dark Knight Returns, Year One, and the Killing Joke?

    I'd buy two copies...

    It's a shame. The Essentials have died far too soon. There is plenty of 1980s art that deserves the b&w treatment. Miller's Daredevil, Byrne's FF, Simonson's Thor, and anything done by John...

    I don't consider this "art" any more than the use of newsprint for paper. It was an ugly, unavoidable choice due to limitations of the medium. Comics were cheap reading, so high grade coloring...

    As much as I respect and admire DC's classic editors (Schwartz, etc), Jeanette Khan was right when she took over--she noticed that all the editors were over 60 (or maybe over 50). DC's problem was a...

    The rising price tag is another reason I don't pick up random books off the shelf.

    Marvel and DC are pricing the industry away from anyone who might be curious about comics. Once they see the...

    1) I only buy single issues of titles/characters/creators that I officially collect. I look at it like this...if I skipped this issue, what's the chance I buy it as a back issue because it's part...

    He ruined two years worth of Star Wars comics. Just dreadful art. The guy simply refused to look at any reference. Inexcusable, unprofessional.

    As a kid, I groaned every time I opened up a...

    DC's major characters are all based on 1930s heroic sensibilities. Those kinds of heroes are great guys who do great things because they're the right thing to do. They don't question themselves. ...

    IMO, Byrne as a writer declined in the 1990s. Next Men is a good read, but after that some of his stuff is incomprehensible. He developed a penchant to tell stories out of chronological order and...

    Stan Lee has spoken of this quite a bit. Marvel was definitely targeting the teenage audience from FF#1 on. IMO, it skewed a little older, maybe targeting 18-20 year olds by 1980.

    DC actually...

    The only thing about old comics that I am NOT nostalgic about is the coloring.

    I absolutely love the Chronicles of Conan reprintings of Marvel's Conan comic with all-new computer coloring. ...

    I enjoyed Gary Carlson's BBC very much, and was happy I got a chance to contribute some art.

    I believe there's room in this industry for creators to produce new work done in a classic style. ...

    NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. Ageism infects this industry like a cancer.

    It's been occurring with talent since DC fired all its old Silver Age writers around 1970 and ushered in the "new punks" of Denny...

    What this REALLY means is... once the movie comes out you won't be able to GIVE these things away!

    Worthless the moment you pay for it.

    I hate any changes when a character is adapted to another medium. If you don't like the original as-is, leave it alone. Adapt something else.

    Small exceptions can be made. The bowtie you...

    I collect Bronze Age DC comics from about 1970 to about 1985.

    I have virtually all Superman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Atom, Hawkman, and JLA issues of that time. (I have reprints of all...

    I literally stopped buying New52 Flash because of the new Wally character.

    Up to that point, I could pretend this series was a continuation of the Rebirth-to-Flashpoint Barry. The new Wally 100%...

    I read a bunch of these Atlas comics a long time ago.

    I felt the Atlas comics simply took their audiences for granted. "Kids will buy it anyway." I didn't feel that they were trying to do...

    All the books I care about these days are Indy books of licensed properties. And they almost all die within a year.

    What's appealing about Barry Allen?

    HISTORY

    He saved comic books. I've argued this elsewhere before and in more detail, but comic books were almost certain to die in the end of the 1950s. ...

    It doesn't help matters when fans insist on reducing every character to a single word or phrase. Simplistic labels destroy, they do not enlighten.

    Sounds kinda awful. Not at all what I'd want in a FG comic.


    But I'll buy it anyway.
