    This is a distortion of the facts. Having a successful comic strip wasn't an alternative of comic book creators, it was THE goal. With the Syndicates, if you had a successful comic strip, you got a...

    Correct. DC recently brought back no less than--wait for it--FELIX FAUST and it was GREAT! The idea of a new version of the Red Ghost would be awesome! What's WOULD be his take on Modern Russia?...

    I was willing to give Simonson a try but like I said, I wasn't impressed with The Thing's wearing his old "Thing" costume. The days of using a dramatic gimmick and getting readers to keep buying a...

    ITEM #1- Burgos passed away in 1984 and the "Value" of old comics, including old Timely books had gone up considerably in the mid 70s so I stand by the statement. Also, I don't think older comics in...

    What is all this stuff about Bill Finger getting "The Shaft"? It's simply not true. It's a falsehood that was propagated by those who don't know what they are talking about. Bill Finger was hired to...
