Watchman and TDKR weren't that good in the first place and aged like potato salad in the sun

One More Day is ok and folks totally overreact to it

Superman is a fun character that works well when the writer isn't star struck.

Bruce Wayne is boring as shit and they should have let Dick keep the cowl.

Vampire Mom Jubliee was the best development the character recieved since Gen-X and every time she goes back to the core team she gets regressed

Capes books are far less important than Graphic Novels.

My library should put all of the cape books in the YA section.

(jk, I recently read Injustice for the first time, great success DC)

Best wolverine anything in the past five year was the Audio Drama The Long Night and The Lost Trail.

Chris Claremont.

Not sure if I even need to say anything else.
I think he is a good guy and a talented writer but he obviously works some personal things out in comics that are best served to be done with a trained mental health professional

The Killing Joke and All Star Superman are both overrated and the latter is really dumb.

Watchmen isn’t overrated and actually deserves more props if only for it’s A+ use of the comic book medium.

Superpowers are handled like complete shit and people are okay with it.
Oda did more with his version of superpowers than the entire Marvel Comics managed to do with a zillion of characters in fifty fucking years.

Sanderson's Second Law
Limitations > Power
The limitations of a magic system are more interesting than its capabilities. What the magic can't do is more interesting than what it can.
The fantastic element is handled like complete shit throughout 99% of usa-made comics.
Characters are oftentimes good, though.

No lies detected.

Maybe the Watchmen one.

But I will emphatically agree that One More Day hate is so overblown it's boring and Vamp Mom Jubes was amazing.

I never remember writer or artists names :(

Should I mail the card in or burn it?

Also, everyone wanted Dick to stay Batman for at least 10 years. It's not that controversial of an opinion to hold

I kinda liked Liefeld's New Mutants work at the time... it was something different. His main problem is that his art never really evolved from there (if anything, it regressed).

The Green Goblin is a terrible character only fit for a comic that comes free with a Spider-Man Halloween breakfast cereal.

I agree about your Superman and Bruce Wayne assessments, also.

There’s a lot to Superman if you’re willing to look in the right areas and Bruce Wayne has always felt like a placeholder for an interesting character that never gets filled in with any development.

Black Panther has been a boring character since Priest stopped writing him

Olivia Munn was fucking GARBAGE as Psylocke. Some Indie-con cosplay level garbage. And yet, a lot of people consider her the redeeming factor for X-Men Apocalypse.

Take my fucking nerd card for all I care.

I won't even read comics from before the 2010s cause female characters' costumes are trash.

Batman on the Justice League doesn't work.
All the time writers just make everyone dumber just to make Batman smarter and thus not completely useless.

Batman works best on low crime stories, cosmic stuff is out of his league.

What? She wasn't terrible but she wasn't great. She wasn't really anything. She had like 2 lines and 20 seconds of action.


As far as the costume goes it seemed pretty faithful.

Get ready to ignore me.

The best artists on Claremont’s Uncanny run were Paul Smith and BWS. Given how that run went starting with the Muir island saga, it’s a relief it was taken behind the shed. Even if that meant these books would keep sucking for decades.

Dan Slott saved Spider-Man.

Rick Remender had a couple of good runs on cape comics, but he tends to mistake edginess for depth.

Batman punching Guy Gardner isn't funny and shows how immature he is. AND Gardner has EONS more character development than Bats have in the last 30 years and is the better character of the two
