    I started reading in late 1974. I sympathize with you greatly. But I have not lost my "love" for comics at all.

    I loathe new Marvel and DC. They treat their characters like they're just...

    Depends on what books you're reading. But they do not GROW out of fascist thinking.

    The superhero as we know him, Superman and his descendants, is actually an outgrowth of New Deal LIBERALISM. ...

    This question remains open. Haven't seen any official statements on the Dark Horse stuff. I think Marvel is saying nothing because they want people happily buying the new titles before they risk...

    Canon I miss?

    The DCU as it existed in January of 1985. It only needed better stories.

    Alex Ross's JUSTICE series proves there was nothing wrong with those characters, they just needed better...

    Any time limitation was just a hokey plot device to limit a character. Aquaman was almost ruined by that limitation alone. Thor's hammer limitation led to a lot of warped plots. Only Hourman made...

    The interconnectedness of Marvel was even stronger under later editors.

    Other than those occasional crossover hero fights, Stan Lee actually restricted the appearance of characters. For example,...

    I liked this series for the most part.

    Didn't like that Parker "Captain Kirked*" Flash Gordon into some kind of spoiled fratboy doofus.

    My expectations could not possibly be lower, and that's before seeing these godawfully dull images.

    At this point, there's virtually no chance I'll ever spend money to see this thing. Fox is...

    " I just want to show people that you don't have to change what it is about these characters that made them appealing back then. "

    I agree completely. So why did you turn Flash Gordon into some...

    If you considered how well Lucasfilm keeps its continuity straight even across multiple media (novels, comics, cartoons, movies, games, etc.), you might not be so quick to defend DC and all it's...

    Ain't THAT the truth.

    DC's probably Levitz's only real option, income-wise. Not much call for his kind of editing in the indy titles; they rarely last long and even more rarely have...

    In other words... *yawn.*

    Shouldn't have gotten my hopes up that DC would try to sell me some comics again.

    Sounds like DC is talking about one thing while giving the impression (intentionally or not) of something else.

    We're talking continuity. What's *in* the comics.

    June being a "new era of...

    The original multiverse was vastly simpler than anything you discuss here. What a mess DC is.
  17. You prove my point.

    You prove my point.

    Not exactly correct. The Action Comics Weekly of the early 90s worked. It sold just fine and lasted 42 issues. DC gave up on it because it took so much effort by editorial (keeping track of 4 or 5...

    A great many employees in this world have been fired for exactly that reason. It can and does happen all the time.

    I am VERY skeptical.

    The stuff set around COIE is very intriguing to me. I'd love to buy a bunch of new titles based on that time, telling future tales of well-established versions.

    But this...

    How do "haters" "keep the New 52 continuity and mess"??? Fans have no power over editorial. If it's a mess, that's on the creators. Haters are just responding to what is published.

    I seriously don't know how Didio keeps his job. He can't make a single sound decision, and he can't even stick with the half-baked ones for very long. The past decade is a total mess.

    I also...

    I'd be more excited, but I generally hate TV adaptations. They don't look much like the comics, the writing is generic "tv" writing, and worst of all they are plagued with generic "tv" acting. It...

    Am I the only one disturbed by what Marvel has been doing with Star Wars? Marvel seems hell-bent to "despecialize" everything about the trilogy, particularly in Ep5 and Ep6.

    We already have seen...

    The simple answer for Vader knowing Luke's name in Ep5 is that the rebellion made a big hero out of Luke, thereby causing the spread of his name across the galaxy as the guy who brought down the...
