May 28, 2016 12:24 pm I would describe our interesting in these new TURTLES films as less than zero, unfortunately.
May 27, 2016 1:26 am It's also linked above in the show notes. But linking it again is great.
May 26, 2016 5:21 pm I talked to a co-worker today who watched the show but has never read the books and she was utterly confused.
May 26, 2016 2:36 pm Oh, this show is a gigantic PR and political minefield.
May 10, 2016 1:02 pm @BC1: You're taking the "Knights" thing too literally. When we were talking about it on the show, none of us were meaning, "DC should allow an outside studio to revamp their street level characters" that's just what Marvel happened to do at the time. We were talking bigger picture: "would DC allow a third party studio to come in and help creatively revamp their line, and in this fictional world where they would allow such a thing, which studio would we want to come in?" We weren't limiting it to a certain character type because, quite frankly, DC needs all the help it can get across the whole line. Now, if you want me to play the game, if I was in charge I'd have Millarworld revamp Superman. Give his studio four Superman books and a blank slate to play with for a year. That would be the most beneficial to DC Comics and comics as a whole. As for Young Animal, I'm not sure what Gerard Way will be doing can be compared to what Quesada and Palmiotti did with Marvel Knights. The characters that Way will be working with are not of the same stature as a Daredevil or a Punisher. If Young Animal blows the doors off of Doom Patrol and Shade the Changing Man/Girl it's not really the same as doing that for Aquaman or Green Arrow in terms of affecting the industry. DC Editorial can safely give that "weird little corner" of DC Comics to Gerard Way without setting any precedents or bruising any egos. Now, if Young Animal creatively blows the doors off and generates unprecedented sales numbers, perhaps the powers that be would consider giving the DCU "the Marvel Knights treatment," but it seems unlikely.
May 9, 2016 5:59 pm @BC1: "And what characters are ready for the kind of creative jolt that Daredevil got?" At DC? Pretty much all of them.
May 9, 2016 2:59 pm @EricAbington: Interesting!
May 4, 2016 12:24 pm Also, even if I didn't know this was Snyder's last issue, I would know it by reading it. This was a quintessential final issue for a writer/creative team for all the reasons we talked about on the show. They wouldn't have done this issue they way they did it if there was one left.
