    You might try Brubaker's "Dead Reckoning" from 'Tec #777-782. I don't know why it isn't more popular or available in trade, other than that it had the misfortune to come out at the same time as...

    Perhaps in the New 52 -- I don't really know who still exists and who doesn't -- but there were at least a few people who were better martial artists than Batman pre-reboot. I didn't read it, but I...

    Wow, really? I haven't paid attention to Bat sales figures in a few years, didn't realize it had gotten that bad.

    In context, IIRC when the reboot was first announced and fans protested the...

    As a follow-up, I came across this article by Cronin that details Oracle's history from TKJ to about the formation of the Birds of Prey. The end confirms that it was around the "Contagion" crossover...

    Not close. The Bat-office had largely stopped using Barbara by 1982, '83 or so... she was already in semi-retirement as Batgirl by the time Crisis came around, and officially retired within Crisis,...
  6. Right, exactly. I don't mind legacy identities,...

    Right, exactly. I don't mind legacy identities, but it usually works better if the former holder of the identity is dead/retired, and it seems likely that's going to stick. Barbara coming back in...

    Yeah, in the Golden Age, they kept running out a string of new Two-Faces after Harvey Dent/Kent was cured -- his butler, another crook trying to frame Harvey, and an actor recreating the original...

    Enh, I'd say it's as good a starting point as any. My first Batman comic was part 6 of Knightfall, Batman versus Firefly while the Joker and Scarecrow terrorize Mayor Krol in the background. My...

    While short, the preview suggests pretty strongly that he doesn't. The fact that Stephanie is surprised to see her dad in costume indicates that she didn't know he was the Cluemaster, so she'd have...

    He was definitely sick. I can't remember if it was the flu or something less severe, but Tim and Alfred tell Bruce a couple of times that he's still getting over being sick, he can't keep running...

    Truth. Just ask Suicide Squad fans, if you can find any who didn't jump off a cliff after the first volume didn't sell enough and DC discontinued plans to collect the full series.

    (Which should...

    Well, pre-Crisis, in the actual Bronze Age, she was at least in her late 20s when she started as Batgirl. I could be wrong, but I think she was in her 30s when she became a Congresswoman.

    That...

    With the impending release of Batman Eternal #1, it's as good a time as any to remind everyone (myself included) that DC is a business first, which means that cliched as it is, the phrase "money...

    Not to be a downer, but there were only 3 volumes of Steph's series -- Batgirl Rising, The Flood, and The Lesson. (She featured somewhat prominently as Batgirl in the World's Finest miniseries,...

    Alan Scott, David.

    You know you want to.

    Or 58, if they're also including the Hawkman issues of the "Black Reign" crossover. :wink:

    That does seem ridiculously huge, now that you mention it. I just got the Hawkman omnibus in the mail...
  17. Sticky: Poll: Terrific news about the JSA Omnibus vol. 2! I...

    Terrific news about the JSA Omnibus vol. 2! I guess preorders for the first were good, or they just have enough faith in Johns' writing and reputation that it'll sell. Either way, great that it'll...
  18. Sticky: Poll: Pretty darn good. Goyer, Robinson, and Johns all...

    Pretty darn good. Goyer, Robinson, and Johns all clearly have a lot of affection for the Golden Age, but are very careful not to make it a nostalgia book by including tons of younger characters and...
  19. Sticky: Poll: No problem! :smile: It's been on my mind...

    No problem! :smile: It's been on my mind lately, ever since the JSA omnibus contents were announced. (And full disclosure, I owe a lot of the specific chronology to The JSA Chronology.) I'm sure...
  20. Sticky: Poll: There's a little uncertainty surrounding exactly...

    There's a little uncertainty surrounding exactly what issues will be included -- the originally-announced contents are slightly different from what Amazon now lists. In theory, it should run up...

    Oh man, Bracuda! Did he ever appear outside of that Catwoman/Robin/Nightwing arc in Showcase '93?

    I have a soft spot for him because that Robin/Nightwing team-up was one of the earliest Robin...
  22. Sticky: Poll: Right, exactly -- I get that (though I hope they...

    Right, exactly -- I get that (though I hope they end up including the Secret Origins of Super-Villains story, because it's only 8 pages and it's the first appearance of Johnny Sorrow, I believe), but...
  23. Sticky: Poll: So, the JSA omnibus. It looks awesome,...

    So, the JSA omnibus. It looks awesome, particularly at that price -- I'm psyched, already ordered mine. But the one thing confusing me is the choice to include the All-Stars mini and the Virtue and...
  24. Poll: Bought the first two trades of Batwoman, reading...

    Bought the first two trades of Batwoman, reading the second now. I was a big fan of the Rucka 'Tec run, and I love ghost stories, plus have some lingering affection for Mr. Bones from Infinity Inc,...

    Thomas Wayne (Sr.) knows his son Bruce was Batman before his death, so if/when he becomes aware of the existence of Earth 1, I'd imagine he'll probably assume its...
