    October 30, 2012 7:24 pm I gotta agree with Cronin. It's not a bad movie but apart from Fassbender Nazi hunting I didn't think there was a whole lot to like (or dislike) about the movie.
    October 9, 2012 1:09 pm So you have strong feelings about your apathy? Just read the books you like - and if you don't like them, just stop. And who cares how any covers there are? It's all still the same story inside.
    October 8, 2012 9:05 pm I've got the oversized hardcover collection of the first 50 covers. It was an awesome Christmas present to get.
    December 10, 2010 7:20 pm To followup their point about capes not making for many of these moments, relative to other kinds of comics, I can't disagree, but there are some examples that absolutely nail it for me.  Detective Comics' second Batwoman arc has this in spades, flashing through moments in her life.  In #859 it shows her at West Point when then commander givers her the opportunity to deny being gay, she simply says "A cadet shall not lie, cheat or steal, nor suffer others to do so. I'm sorry, sir, I can't....I'm gay." And quietly takes her ring off and sets it on the table.

    Just brilliant.  

    Also, did the ban on DADT really just fail to get repealed? Such bullshit.
