    I think the contradiction in definition is that when a computer reboots it "forgets" all operations in process at the time of shutdown, so when it boots back up all operations have to start anew. ...

    Well, *I* have never said there has been no reboot.

    When Shooter started up Valiant with the old Gold Key characters, that WAS a full reboot (as defined by the comics industry in the 1980s). And...

    Perhaps, but capitalism is an echo of mercantilism. By its nature, it is not harmonious in the sense that all people work together for a common purpose. They actually pit subgroups against each...

    Well that's unfortunate. Because reboot is, when referring to literary continuity, a very narrow term.

    This term, in comics, was first used (in any meaningful or significant way) to refer to how...

    Oh yes! Thanks for reminding me about Psycho-Pirate. He's the only character whose memories were not clouded after COIE. (For example, he didn't forget about Barry Allen or the Golden Age Superman...

    As I said in a previous post, this isn't just semantics. These are very different terms and concepts.

    I don't think there's a snowball's chance in Mephisoto's armpit of this being a Marvel...

    No. Think of it as a "true/false" question.

    A reboot is a full restart of continuity. A reboot cannot make any reference to anything prior to the new launch. If any part of old continuity is...

    "To prove this assertion, let's first look at past events that were undeniably reboots. The DC Universe following the events of "Crisis on Infinite Earths" was a full-on reboot. The universal...

    Green Lantern: Rebirth was incredible. It not only restored Hal Jordan to his proper role, but crafted an explanation for the lame "yellow" limitation to GLs' rings.

    This story fit so well it...

    The best, and most necessary, retcon was Byrne's Superman Man of Steel relaunch of the Superman mythos. Not only did it lead to the best era of Superman stories ever done (1987-1992), it returned...

    Not really a retcon.

    Bucky was thought dead. Then is discovered to be alive but brainwashed by the Soviets. The story is linear. It doesn't retroactively change much of anything.

    As with the OP, I loved buying comics in the 1980s because I felt I was buying the history of two universal sagas. Both Marvel and DC cultivated their heritage by footnoting references to past...

    As you say, you only read the first three issues. Aquaman had a presence in the first arc. It wasn't about Aquaman, but he was a participant. Go read the last 3 issues and see if his name should...
  14. As I said, he wasn't a "constant" or the "core"...

    As I said, he wasn't a "constant" or the "core" to the team or the stories, and by the last 4 issues was pretty much a non-factor.

    But he *is* the lead: the title is "AQUAMAN and the Others" not...

    The original Flash Gordon sunday strips were not repetitive. Just a few words in the first panel to set up the situation.

    Secret Agent X-9 by Goodwin and Williamson was a daily that read very...
  16. Done with it: No Aquaman in "Aquaman and the Others"

    I've dumped Aquaman and the Others despite my unwavering love for Aquaman comics. Why?

    It's not because I dislike all the "Others." I do, but I could put up with them (and their extremely boring...

    I bailed from Marvel and DC at $4 a copy. I buy almost nothing from them.

    If I'm going to pay $4 for a M/DC comic, it's going to be a back issue with great art and a coherent story. Plenty of...

    It's a "wall."

    I believe the practice is an attempt to appear friendly without ever letting the relationship get personal. It keeps the other person at a distance, sort of formal but not...

    I stopped liking most animation in the 1980s. I hate most all the 90s cartoons, especially the Marvel stuff, but I liked the first Batman series of that time.

    I find that I don't like the sound...

    Which is why I don't understand this reboot. The target audience doesn't read comics.

    The actual audience, nostalgic adults (buying for themselves or their kids), stand a considerable chance of...

    New look is lame.

    The ONLY thing I actually liked about Spider-Woman ever was her costume. Strikingly perfect. I'd buy her comics just to see that "look" move across the page. Same reason I...

    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...
