    ROGER RABBIT, and that was back in 1988, *way* before Disney came to own Marvel.

    And the Internet, with its Amazons and EBays. :)

    But another DC and Marvel crossover is unlikely not because fans don't want to see it, and writers don't want to do it, but because Marvel is now...

    I think we've already seen the last DC/Marvel crossover of our lifetimes. :)

    Yeah. Waid did not explicitly refer to it as THE SPEED FORCE, though it's clearly derived from the idea. There was, as you said, enough Silver Age whimsy to it (as opposed to the near mystical...
  5. Yeah...I always thought the character (Big Sir)...

    Yeah...I always thought the character (Big Sir) was rather tasteless. John Steinbeck was able to portray Lennie Small with great humanity and sensitivity; Cary Bates' presentation of Big Sir was an...

    I think the renumbering part is already confirmed; everything else is a bit up in the air, though.

    Twenty years into the practice, has it worked out well for the writers, fans, and industry in general? Is there greater satisfaction at the writing desk, in the reading chair, and at the cash...
  8. I've always wondered why that particular style of...

    I've always wondered why that particular style of writing was abandoned some time during the 1990s (I think). It was a solid model that really worked. Writers didn't need to necessarily do it all...

    I kind of wonder if superhero comics today might benefit from revisiting that style of narrative. I know we older fans would love it, but would younger readers go for it?

    I think we got Golden Glider in the Bronze Age years after Barry and Iris wed, but yeah...by the 1980s, we weren't getting any new classic Rogues...we were scraping the bottom of the barrel with the...

    I recommend the entire run of his own book when Chuck Dixon was writing it, but if that's too much at a time, then probably early stories such as ROBIN: A HERO REBORN and ROBIN II: THE JOKER'S WILD....
  12. Excellent, and it worked because even though it...

    Excellent, and it worked because even though it was set in a Post-COIE DCU configuration, Waid kept it Pre-COIE real by not mentioning a PEEP about the Speed Force and hardly even hinted (except at...

    It's a shame, because I really liked Tim back in his 1990s heyday, and don't dislike him now in his New 52 incarnation, but it's been a long, long time since I've been excited about the life and...

    I'd say Batman is quite different from the Adam West version that introduced me to the character when I was a child. :)

    I think Tim Drake is a far cry from the character introduced in A LONELY...

    I thought it was OK, but Johns could have done *way* more with it (as he had with GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH). Not sure if Barry's Post-REBIRTH origin story really helped his character development,...

    Reasonably, though, unless one is an octogenarian who started with ACTION COMICS # 1 and DETECTIVE COMICS # 27 back in the late 1930s, we *all* kind of did this to some extent. We all started with...
  17. It's a good start, but not nearly enough. By...

    It's a good start, but not nearly enough.

    By the time these two books were on the shelves, a good portion of fifty years worth of characters were sent to the "delete" file.

    Comic books are undergoing a seabed change right now that is going to excite many people, but perplexing to longtime fans whose expectations have been set over decades and years.

    Fine, but I bought tons of CONVERGENCE comics. We're both DC fans, but neither of us is a "definitive" DC fan; there isn't such a thing.

    I don't know about the public in general, but I personally bought more DC books last year during CONVERGENCE than I have at any time during the past ten years. I really enjoyed it, though the ending...

    It was quite a dramatic change in look and tone, and had very strong appeal at the time.

    The Bronze Age has the best balance of the two.

    Indeed. It's difficult to imagine Didio, Harras, and the crew all just waking up one morning and thinking, "Hey...let's go piss off a bunch of fans and make life harder for ourselves!"

    Very good stuff, though definitely made during and for a time when audience expectations were different. Nothing necessarily wrong with that.
