    He's a magician who doesn't like to use magic because it usually causes problems. So mostly he's a con man.

    That would have required him to sacrifice a virgin princess on the altar stone of Set. Big brain is too good of a guy to do that.

    I've now gone through exactly half of the TPBs that came out of the NuDC reboot. As expected, the soft reboot caused more confusion than it cleared up. At least for me. Of the books I read, I think I may have actually liked 5 or 6. And actively disliked twice that. The rest were pretty much "enh." the ones I liked were Animal Man and Swamp Thing (though I really hated the Alex Holland portrayal), one of the Green Lantern Corp books, can't remember which, Aquaman, and maybe Demon Knights.

    I don't think I'll say which ones I truly hated, but from what I hear, it was close to a consensus throughout fandom for a few of them.

    I've read Swamp Thing, Animal Man and Batman. That's all I've come across I could read for free. I agree that Swamp Thing and Animal Man were both pretty decent. Batman was not. I guess it wasn't actively bad, but I felt like I'd read the exact same story at least a half dozen times before.

    Instead of everyone going to Canterlot, each region of Equestria would select someone to go and speak on their behalf. Everyone in Ponyville would gather and share who they thought should be the new princess, and then they chose one pony to go to Canterlot and say who Ponyville supported. The same thing was done by the ponies in Cloudsdale, and Appleloosa, and Manehattan, and all the places where ponies lived.

    Then when all the pony representatives got together, they each shared who the ponies in their hometown wanted to be the new princess. And whoever got the most yays* got to rule Equestria for the next four years.

    I saw him with Crazy Horse in the mid-90s. My boss at the time exactly fit the scenario you described here. He and his wife left halfway through.

    I can think of no one I would rather my moody children talk to about their problems than you, my sweet caring intelligent sidekick. How you didn't get this job in your first interview is a mystery to me. Good luck!

    I should probably read the next four trades since they are just sitting there on my book shelf. I've never been a big magic fan, but I do love a good con... and cranky alcoholics.

    I feel utter ANGER....over the decision to cancel Hellblazer. I mean its been your most steady title for 20+ years. Its the grandfather of the Vertigo line. Cancelling it for a new 52 Constantine is pretty dumb.

    It's Obama's fault.
