  1. I never buy it when someone tries to tell the ‘down on his luck’ Dick Grayson story.

    You want to tell that story? Use another character, write an Elseworld’s, or Even Write a new character from scratch!

    Dick is Never- Never going to be without resources.


  2. Damn, no Venom podcast? And I was so looking forward to an old-fashioned rant from you guys! Oh well.

  3. In the flashbacks in Nightwing #50 my only nitpick is Dickwhen he was Robin never wore the long green leegings or used the Bo staff, those were Jason Todd accoutrements, that aside, the story was great!

  4. On DC/Marvel cameos: does it weird anyone else out when characters on DC TV shows make Marvel references? Last season seemed to be particularly egregious.
