May 13, 2013 12:22 pm There was a scene in No Man's Land (the old Batman epic) where Batman tried to reveal his identity to Gordon, as a trust building exercise. Gordon intentionally looked away and said: "I'm a cop. If I really wanted to know who you are, I would have figured it out a long time ago." I get the impression that DCs writers want to approach their heroes from the perspective that Marvel has been taking (ie. secret identities are played out) but their characters are so steeped in tradition that the status quo is a very difficult thing to tackle. We are talking about comics, after all. There's a certain level of disbelief suspension that is implied when reading and discussing the medium. Different books apply said disbelief in different ways and places.
May 13, 2013 11:25 am My only real issue with the series so far is that all the faces look the same. The only way you can tell Hitler from all the other guys wearing the EXACT SAME outfit is his tiny little mustache. Makes it difficult to follow. The story seems interesting, but I think I'm signing off.

May 2, 2013 1:37 am Robot samurai? Am I the only one who saw that?

March 22, 2013 11:18 am That's why I bailed after 5 issues. Everybody's singing this series' praises, but it did nothing for me. I didn't even hate it, I just nothing-ed it. And I like Bendis, but his team work is just too slow.
March 4, 2013 12:11 pm I'm not a huge fan of Ultimate Spider-Man. So I don't watch it, problem solved. Also... Super Dinosaur.
February 18, 2013 12:27 pm The solution is to stop reading the comments section. Too bad nobody reasonable will ever read this.
February 14, 2013 3:56 pm The art is pretty neutral for me. I can find it a little hard to decode a lot of the time, but there's no arguing that it fits the tone of the book.
February 4, 2013 12:35 pm No news is bad news. Every time they make some “Schwuhhh?” moment, the interweb is set afire with fanboys (i, or not) ranting and raving. While those specific ranters and ravers may not be saying very nice things about (say...) Legion Lost, suddenly there's a lot of buzz about a series no one was talking about before. Seeing Liefeld jump on, then promptly off, Hawkman didn't get me personally to buy more copies, but I bet somebody did. DCs been making money off us for decades. I like to think they have some idea what they're doing.
