    Read Superman BEFORE December, 1941. Not conservative at all. He fought the powerful in favor of the weak, took on crooked businessmen and their crooked crony politicians.

    Superheroes got...

    Dixon is just being reactionary.

    KIDS DON'T READ COMICS, CHUCK! They're bought and read by adults... and guess what: WE ARE INTERESTED IN POLITICS.

    America has become so politicized that we...
  3. Sticky: Maybe Dixon should be targeting the children's...

    Maybe Dixon should be targeting the children's books industry.... particularly the publisher of "Help, Mom! There are liberals under my bed!"

    And it's not a "liberal" idea for kids shows to be...

    At this point, it's just good business to eschew current social conservative agendas from any entertainment venture. Politics of exclusion = fewer customers. Politics of inclusion = more customers....
  5. From the comments quoted in the OP, the instances...

    From the comments quoted in the OP, the instances of rejection seem to be about childish editors and not any real political differences at all.

    If you're a conservative and you're being looked...

    Why I love the Bronze Age of Batman the best...

    1. No Robin. I hate sidekicks as a concept, and kid sidekicks on moral grounds. In Dec 1969, Robin grew up, became the Teen Wonder, and left for...
  7. Nobody idol-worships Neal Adams and Denny O'Neil...

    Nobody idol-worships Neal Adams and Denny O'Neil more than me. But...

    FRANK ROBBINS does not get his fair share of the credit for this. (Nor do Irv Novick or Bob Brown.)

    Go back to the...

    It has started already with Batman Showcase v5. And v6 is available for pre-order on Amazon. So maybe we'll get this done over the next 10-15 years. :(

    I'd also prefer DC to jump the Batman...
  9. Marvel won't necessarily cancel a series doing...

    Marvel won't necessarily cancel a series doing 20k. But they might end that run of numbers to start up another #1.

    I've never been convinced that the Star Wars adaptation "saved" Marvel. It...

    I feel your pain. Some good stories are getting tossed into the dumpster. I have been enjoying the Wood series very much. I understand we all have specific wants and can't seem to get them, but I...

    Well said!

    When Marvel spent 3 years making post-Empire comics they all seemed a bit sad in that our great heroes had no clue where Han was. Seemed obvious where he was going (Tatooine and...

    There's not much that hasn't been done already.

    What's cheap is doing pretty much exactly what DH was doing.

    Yep. Doing the same stuff.

    1. DH was publishing a popular ongoing series set right after Ep4. What's Marvel's big idea? An ongoing set right after Ep4.

    2. DH's regular series was focused on...

    ROM Spaceknight (keep dreaming, I know)
    Micronauts
    Space 1999
    Indiana Jones
    Buck Rogers (Chaykin's mini is over) - one based on the 70s TV show
    Planet of the Apes
    Logan's Run
    Dragon's Lair

    The art is a deal breaker for me. Very amateurish, especially the humans. No way I buy this based on the preview art.

    I think Kirby is so far beyond most other creators that they should really...

    What happened to John Byrne?

    He was putting out a comic every month like clockwork. My pull list says "Byrne's IDW comics" (because the title changes every 4 issues).

    But lately, nada. I...
  17. Sticky: I read comics because I like COMICS. I like how...

    I read comics because I like COMICS. I like how the medium delivers a story. It is my preferred delivery of fiction.

    I do not watch much television. I don't like watching any TV drama shows. I...

    I don't get it. Why can't he use Kickstarter? Sure, they won't do it the way SLG's doing it now--simple begging with no promise of any tangible return. But surely he could use Kickstarter to...

    1. Geoff Johns, not "the New52", made Aquaman better. The strength of this series was Johns treating Aquaman with respect, showing Aquaman is formidable and has an interesting personal story, and...

    Pretty much explains why I have almost dropped DC completely.

    I'm a comics fan. I want to buy comics that are made to be COMICS--not testing grounds for movie pitches. DC has sacrificed decades...

    Sounds like the GS *I* know from message boards.

    I once criticized her Atom series and she went off on a rant calling me a racist and junk like that. She got personal and nasty. Got me banned...

    1. When writers and editors run out of ideas they... replace the characters.

    Howsabout replacing the talent pool? If a writer or editor's out of ideas, replace THEM...not the characters.

    I'd love to buy DC, too, except for different reasons.


    The New52's "Marvel-izing" OF the DCU is about as enjoyable as tooth decay.

    We're not actually getting "Marvel," and it's cost us...
