    Wow, that review appalls me in the way that it treats a real person on the spectrum as a prop in Callahan's critique of Hickman's failings as a writer. Asperger's and aneurotypicality aren't...

    I have to admit, I haven't been terrifically fond of his Avengers, either. Usually slow pacing means deeper characterization, but…well, I find Hickman's Avengers flat characters, even by super-team...

    IDW published a few miniseries of Beau Smith's creation Wynonna Earp, who battles monsters and demons with guns. I think she uses some specialized equipment, though.
  4. Ancient Footprints Are Everywhere: The Really Secret Origin of Spider-Man's Cardiac…at DC?!?

    It's no secret that writers sometimes reuse concepts, developing them on one book or at one company and reviving them elsewhere, often in more polished form. But I've come across some especially...

    I'm pretty big on Grendel/Batman, as someone else mentioned. It's kind of a natural, really: Grendel feels like a Bat-rogue, and Batman like a strikingly effective foil to Hunter Rose.

    The problem with Wagner is that his run is broken up quite a bit. In the early years Alan Grant is sometimes soloing, and later on Wagner was trying to hand the series off to others at various...

    Dave Sim doing 300 issues of Cerebus would probably factor in here too. Manga also complicates matters. On the one hand, in publication terms they go for hundreds of installments with a single...

    "Full bleed" refers to the ability to print an image all the way to the edges of the page, rather than the old requirement to have a white border or "gutter" around images. It came in during the...

    Given that paper quality is usually quite high, sewing is invariably better for bindings. Glued bindings fall apart over time and often restrict the flexibility of the spine. With comics, which beg...

    To respond to some of your initial questions, I'd say that AD is a comedy and works best when viewed as one, if only because it's too absurd and too satirically pointed to be called a drama even...

    No time for a full reply right now, but a few comments I made elsewhere after seeing the seasons some time ago:

    The show has shifted tone, adapting to an America (and thus, a Bluth family) shaken...

    I suspect you'll be hearing a lot about the Crooked World/Fury/Jaspers Warp here.
  13. Recasting Mister Fantastic: A Thought Experiment

    Looking at the reaction to the possible casting of Michael B. Jordan, a fine actor with youthful energy and appeal, as Johnny Storm, you see a lot of the usual rearguard action against such "racial...

    on a guide to Captain America: There's nothing especially recent that I know of beyond the last HC of the Marvel Handbook, but in the mid-1990s you had the Captain America: The Legend one-shot...

    I'm not trying to discourage anyone from reading and/or discussing the series; I just hate that sort of "but you're wrong because I like it!" sort of thing.

    I didn't read past the first six...

    Two points:

    1. I was reviewing volume one, then in isolation. I stand by my assessment of that volume, when read entirely in isolation.
    2. If you're going to respond to a detailed critique, it...

    Outside of John Constantine I'm struggling to think of a notable Alan Moore character who he actually created rather than using a existing character or (as in the case of Watchmen) adapted from an...

    Part III: It Didn't Add Much of Lasting Value

    Leaving aside the new totem-villains, it's also quite hard to connect the totems to any of the other animal-themed villains' origins or motivations....

    Part II: It Wasn't Thought Through

    The Totem storyline is a good case study in a retcon doomed by its poor follow-through and by the way it was used to introduce and tout the virtues of several...
  22. Why I Don't like the Totem Storyline from JMS's Spider-Man Part One

    Part I: It Wasn't a Story, It Was a Writer's Quirk

    The totem story wasn't a bad idea necessarily, but based on the execution it was probably never going to be a significant or lasting addition to...

    A slight correction re: Buffy.

    Spike was supposed to be killed off in the mid-season two-parter "What's My Line" that restored Drusilla to full strength. She was then to take over his role until...
