    So no heroes in the New 52 are allowed to be married? (I suppose that's one reason why fans of "Smallville: Season 11" can be happy that it's outside that universe.) Is the DCU one in which all...

    Thought-provoking interview that gets to the "big issues" addressed by the series. Thanks!

    Now that we've seen Irina's Mom, when will we learn who was that woman who was hanging on the dungeon wall in issue #20?

    Vol. 1: The Unwritten
    Vol. 2: Sill Unwritten, but now Renumbered
  5. DeMatteis has always been one of DC's strongest...

    DeMatteis has always been one of DC's strongest writers for the "metaphysical" titles. His "Dr. Fate" run in the late 1980s was perhaps the most interesting treatment of that character, and the JLD...

    "And somehow that filename on your desktop makes it feel a little bit better for some people."

    It makes me feel vastly better. I lose Internet connectivity sometimes (OK, a lot of time, in...
  7. I'm not convinced that an Archie movie would be...

    I'm not convinced that an Archie movie would be very much like a John Hughes film. "Archie" IP is kept squeaky clean, so any raunchy dialog or profanity, teen-aged drinking, sexual situations, or...

    Happy belated May 4 birthday greetings to all students in the Academy! Too bad your parents won't be sending you any presents, on account of the school's having murdered them and all.
  9. I suggest reading the singles each month. You...

    I suggest reading the singles each month. You will have to re-read them (repeatedly!), because each new issue gives you insight to many things you didn't understand, and many other things you missed...
  10. There are indeed a lot of details that seem (or...

    There are indeed a lot of details that seem (or in fact really are) contradictory, but that's the nature of a story in which time is malleable and reality is non-local (as Bell's theorem constantly...

    Issue #24 was in the same vein as the "backstory" issues in which we learned about the pre-Academy life of each of the Glories, although this time it's another one of the issues that "explains" Ike. ...

    People rave so much about this story and how well it's written (as they most certainly should!) that they neglect to describe just how impressive the art is (especially the coloring) and how it's...
  13. I really don't think there are too many...

    I really don't think there are too many characters with complex backstories (although, to be fair, this book has already explored more backstory than most series do in their entire multi-year runs,...
  14. And there you have it. I've lost count of how...

    And there you have it. I've lost count of how many times I re-read the first few issues trying to get past the first arc and move on to the second one. I still keep going back to them, and every...

    I don't get the feeling (that I did from the little bit of "Lost" that I watched) that "He's just making this up as he goes along." On the contrary, you can see definite patterns emerging, and...

    I just downloaded #23 from Comixology and gave it what will surely be only the first of several readings I shall conduct over the next few days. My initial reaction is that it lived up to my...

    I'm new to this board, although not to this book. Before #23 comes out, I just have to ask a question about a particular scene in #22: is the image of the kids' crawling up the boulder-strewn...

    Yeah, I know how Image is now the "new" Vertigo, but the fact is that I've always liked the "original" Vertigo. I read Hellblazer regularly during the first Garth Ennis run and irregularly since...
