    Check out some Silver Age collections. They're so compressed sometimes you can barely tell what's going on. I've read some where the graphic storytelling is so truncated it makes no sense and they...

    I think it's technically against the rules even to post it as a comment. The no-cursing rule has been implemented haphazardly since NU CBR, but I've noticed it can definitely push a post to deletion...

    This is in the running for the worst topic title I've ever seen at CBR.

    About as likely to cause an Ebola outbreak as the African Ebola victims that have already been brought here for treatment. So, no big deal.

    I used to be a reporter in a town where officials weren't super keen on any Halloween displays featuring hanging dummies. That's because the town was so economically depressed and suicide was so...

    So does the Mafia. It controls territory, forces people to follow Omertà, and takes protection money. Wielding power over people through terror is not the definition of a state.

    Should comics be pure escapism or can they tackle realistic subjects?

    Look, when Fox News lines up a bunch of people, makes them dig their own graves, and then shoots them and kicks them in, I'll entertain this equivalency. But until then it's just hyperbolic nonsense.

    ISIS. ISIS are most definitely terrorists. Not only have they been designated as such by numerous governments, you just have to watch one beheading video to know that.

    Is supporting bigots, fascists and terrorists just to get a rise out of people some kind of edgy 4 Chan thing? It's annoying, at any rate.

    A friend tried it once. His review was "Mmmm. This is ... Gack. Help me. Uuugghhhh. No please God I. Ughhhhh." But then he just collapsed on the floor and stopped breathing. I've always been annoyed...

    I also agree with Bert. Internal fictional consistency is important. Think about that scene in Superman 2 where he suddenly developed a couple of unexplained powers to help him get out of a jam. That...

    Nexus and Badger are my favorites, but you can't go wrong, really. If you want a little more obscure title, Mars is amazing.

    Campfire stories or urban legend is better. One element I've noticed is that they're presented as if they're things that really happened, like the couple that went to lover's lane to make out and...

    Not really. Those are used to waste time, but they aren't all garbage. All creepy pasta is garbage.

    They don't care. They know women will still get back alley abortions if they make them illegal. It's just about keeping their religion encoded in our laws and culture.

    All pretty much do. I forget all but a few details of the stories, so they generally seem fresh in the re-reading no matter what.

    I love old underground comix and alternative comix and I hope some of you do, too. Let's talk about everything from Zap to Zippy here, and show off your new finds.

    To start the discussion, what...

    Never a big Linsner fan myself. Maybe because all I ever saw from the guy was boobage pinup covers and Cry for Dawn, which I didn't think was that good.
