  1. As I’m sure many will have pointed out by now, Ricardo Jones is a Lee/Kirby character from the 60s, the main antagonist in the famous “This Man, This Monster” issue. Like a lot in this comic, his situation in Life Story has been tweaked to fit, of course. Interestingly, the character was never named until an issue of Amazing Spider-Man decades later, having something to do with the time Spider-Man was turned into a Hulk. For the first time. Ah, comics.

  2. Intrigued by the idea of Conor ranting about the current state of the Batman line, I popped over to see the recording at Patreon.

    If a anything, sir, you were far too gentle.

  3. I am enjoying NIghtwing quite a bit so far.
    But the more the I think about the more it just Doesn’t make sense that Alfred left everything to Dick
    and nothing to Tim? Even Jason.
    I mean each Robin was taken in with the same level of caring by Alfred.
    Feels- short sighted. Not something I am used to seeing from Taylor.
