    I didn't follow that bit about "girls have economic cooties" as a reason for the cancellation. What are you talking about?

    People who buy several copies of something, in the hopes of being able to sell 'em a couple of years later for 50 or 100 dollars apiece, are usually called "speculators."

    I hadn't realized either. I bought all the relevant issues as they were first coming out, over a decade ago, and I still have them if I want to reread 'em, so I had taken zero interest in the TPB...

    I certainly agree with you that "it's legal" proves precious little about whether or not "it's moral." A few years ago, on another comic book discussion forum, I saw someone boldly assert that only...

    Seriously, I never got past the first page of the original "Twilight" novel. A few years ago I saw a used copy on sale, cheap, in a store, and I picked it up and read that first page. As I recall,...

    Back in the 1990s and early 2000s, Gotham definitely was in a death-penalty state -- Blackgate Prison had its own "Death Row," for instance. Batman only had a real problem with that if he thought...

    Let us not forget that years later, in a story in "Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #17" (written by Jerry Siegel himself), it would turn out that if the Silver Age/Earth-1 Superman gave blood...

    When I amused myself by criticizing Lois's wild mood swings in the Silver Age, at most I was trying to be humorously "controversial" about what was badly wrong with her as a "potential mate for...

    You mean that once upon a time, a new Star Trek film and a new Star Trek TV episode came out just a few days apart with the two stories being set at the same time, and showing the perspectives of...

    Suppose we clarify that -- regarding his Bronze Age (70s/early 80s) activities, what points strike you as particularly flagrant examples of Batman not normally following "due process"? For me, the...

    It did? I don't see much "controversy" arising in response to your idea about Bronze Age Lois staying a "black woman" indefinitely. In my case, it merely made me curious about exactly what you had in...
