    Came across all Locke and Key six trades in library. Took them out, and read them, finished last night.

    Really enjoyed it, thought artwork was exceptional. And… of course… series like this have...

    Two answers to why Reed hasn't cleaned up NYC.

    Mine: Reed is a villain himself (and has no interest in stopping crime), but is too intelligent to reveal himself openly as such. Obviously… as this...

  4. Is Lex really a shoo-in for 1st?

    Forgetting all the stuff from long ago when Lex regularly broke jail using stuff invented from old fountain pens and paper clips is he really a shoo-in for number 1, based on feats in existing...

    Once upon a time I'd have said Wakanda couldn't win unless writer went crack a dog.

    But nowadays there's been so much daft power escalation at all points north, south, east and west that nobody...

    Yes.

    As an aside this is the type of comic whose fate completely baffles my tired old noggin. One of very few that I bought as it came out. It was taking Frank in a new interesting direction...

    I don't believe for a second that the guy was arguing that Franklin Richards was the reason he didn't enjoy comics anymore. Indeed given the way he put the argument it was pretty obvious that he was...

    I just don't look at it that way.

    There would be plenty of fresh young characters for new generation to grow up with.

    I'm always surprised (but yes… know I shouldn't be) at how many comic fans...

    Of course, some of them "suck". But plenty of entry level jobs can be good fun, its like most things in life a hell of a lot depends on people you end up working with. Looking back at my long...

    Quite a few people believe that Bob Kane invalidated a contract with DC by lying about his age. (i.e. Pretending to be younger than he was when he signed it, below age at which he could commit to a...

    Indeed. Once it becomes a question of pure ethics it becomes horrendously complex… probably impossible to manage a way through.

    Certainly for me there are "positions" in our society that seem...

    Yes, I'd agree that market forces need to be moderated by a humane framework where-ever possible...that's why I used the phrase "market forces within present legal framework" rather than merely...

    But I've never argued against companies paying royalties, etc in appropriate circumstances.

    All I've argued against is Branon's suggestion to completely bar work for hire contacts for artists.

    And Wolverine turns out to be the smarter brother.

    I've always thought it pretty obvious that Wolvie's not really a mutant…. those claws are self evidently mechanical. And its probable that his...

    My favourite Marvel stories in recent years have been Alias by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, and the Captain Britain stories by Alan Moore and Alan Davis in the Omnibus.

    That made me chuckle.

    But seriously does anybody really believe that most pro comic writers are the type to worry about working on "All Star" because guys who came before did a good job?? Put it...

    I suspect you don't really mean 5 to 10% "ownership". That would imply a responsibility for actually funding the creation in the first place (e.g. paying the wages for the talent, costs of printing...

    Self evidently…. given a 99% failure rate a hell of a lot of risk.

    What you're suggesting… actually making work for hire contracts illegal for "artists" (defined how?)…. would probably reduce...

    Why was All Star line so short lived?

    I thought basic concept behind All Star (take a dedicated writer, artist, and editor and let them tell story set in own continuity unfettered by a lot of usual brand management constraints) was top...

    Explain to me how my contention that artists should not be above rest of society implies that I believe that politicians and CEO's should be.

    Yes, I was against Barry's return for the same reason (though he was one of my favourite characters in my long lost youth) it threw away the most successful model in mainstream comics of legacy...

    If you want Wally as the one "true Flash" why would your anger be assuaged by just bringing him back? If Barry's still around… then what you really want hasn't been delivered.

    Indeed it might...

    I don't see that problem in the arts at all in the present day.

    Today young writers and artists in US and Europe can make an informed choice between working for hire, or working for a share of...

    Like most others I wish Marvel had treated JK far more generously while he was still around to enjoy the fruits of his labours.

    But I have to say this petition baffles me. It argues “it is beyond...

    You could easily argue that the Supreme featured in Alan Moore's run was a lot closer to Silver Age Superman than versions of Superman featured in DC mainstream Superman versions in last 20 years.
