    February 21, 2013 12:10 pm So Connor, what are some good old-fashioned Green Lantern "space cop" type of stories? Johns early run?
    December 3, 2012 12:03 pm What is Daryl asking if Merle is the Governor an in-joke reference to?
    November 12, 2012 11:14 pm I wonder if Hellblazer will ever have one-off returns in OGNs or something like that?
    November 12, 2012 9:52 pm Sigh, it will be missed. Hopefully it's not a sign of Vertigo's end, but even if it is, it's a hell of a legacy. an sod right off. "The trades, for decades, have been an indecipherable glyphic mess without numbering." Luckily, you can still find that info online. What did we do BEFORE Wikipedia? I was alive, but I don't remember. Say, on that subject Josh, are you doing any articles about your favorite issues and storylines, which trades to pick up, etc? Thought you might want to give it a bit of a send-off party. In any case, good article. The end of an era, or just a good book? Either way, sad stuff.
    July 2, 2012 1:15 pm For me, WATCHMEN is one of those works like LAWRENCE OF ARABIA or ABBEY ROAD that's just so perfect the way it is, not a panel too long, that I just feel iffy on the concept of the whole prequel series. I'm not saying that it doesn't have top tier talent or that it won't be good, it just feels like gilding the lily.
    June 13, 2012 11:42 am Say, do you guys have an actual forum proper or just this spool under the articles?
    June 11, 2012 10:25 pm Sounds like the thing from Pulp Fiction.
    June 11, 2012 10:21 pm That may be, but I personally have known more than a few Scots and Irishman, including family members, who've been upset at being mistaken for Brits. My grandfather was off the boat, and he got into his share of fights about it :p. Some of which got him into trouble. It obviously depends on who you ask, but I just thought I'd throw in 2c. It's much more likely to find a British person who considers the rest of the UK as "British" than the people actually from the respective regions, in my experience (especially given the many documented conflicts between the English and the Scottish/Irish). I'm biased, of course, I'm a whitebread American boy who's name is O'Connor, but it's in the family and I've heard tales, so beware who you say it to, I've offended more than a few people that way. Like I said, maybe it's just a pet peeve of mine because of my last name :D.
    June 11, 2012 2:43 pm Maybe, but if you were to say that to someone who was Irish or Scottish, you might get a negative answer (or, in the case of some people I've heard, a punch in the face). If you went up to a Scotchman or and Irishman or a Welshman and asked them, they probably wouldn't identify themselves as "English." There may be some who would, but I think you'd find a fair few who'd be pretty adamant that they weren't!
    June 11, 2012 11:18 am OK, I'll be registering shortly, but I had to say, Josh, I understand what you're saying about British writers writing Constantine, but one of the most noteworthy writers of HELLBLAZER was Garth Ennis. And he's not English, he's Irish. And Grant Morrison is Scottish. The reference to all UK writers in that Anglo-centric way is a bit of a pet peeve of mine. Just wanted to say :p.
