"Will Payton was an interesting character for a good while, but he fell victim to the 1990s. I wonder if it is still canon that he is in some sense connected to Steve Ditko's previous Starman.  I was never too fond of that retcon, although…"

"It's not at instocktrades yet, but I suppose it will be next week. In the meantime, the Captain Marvel/Ms. Marvel Omnibus is the moral equivalent of Marvel Masterworks: Ms. Marvel Vols. 1-2, if you missed those."

Captain Comics replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Riverdale' Season 3
"I'm pretty sure the show is self-aware. It's written by showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who began his career by writing an off-Broadway play about the Archie gang where they were all gay. He's now the creative director at Archie!"

Captain Comics replied to Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man's discussion What Comic Books Have You Read Today?
"I've been reading a lot of '50s comics as research for my book (and falling behind on current stuff), so that's what I have to talk about. As to horror comics, EC is obviously the gold standard, but Harvey and Fawcett were pretty…"

Captain Comics replied to Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man's discussion What Comic Books Have You Read Today?
"Spoiler: Spider-Man 1602 (Peter Parquagh, or something like that) gets killed in Spider-Geddon. I was stunned that they'd throw away a valuable character like that. But don't worry -- comic-strip Spidey survived!"

DC's supereroes battle multiple extinction events on several fronts

By Andrew A. SmithTribune Content AgencyThings aren’t going so well for our super friends in the pages of DC Comics. And, to paraphrase Ralph Dibny on The Flash TV show: It’s not even summer!Summer has long had a special place in comics. Back when the books were aimed exclusively at children, summer meant kids with more free time and – more importantly – more disposable income. So summer is when publishers would gin up extra issues of ongoing series, annuals and specials.Now comics are aimed…See More

"....After 52 tries.... It's overly cute that they keep referencing the number 52.  That being said, I did enjoy the episode."

"I'm really liking Jessica Parker Kennedy's earnestness as Nora. She had to carry the speedster action because Barry was mostly out of the story. Cisco and Caitlin have synthesized a cure for metahuman powers, but it needs 29 days to fully…"

Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Riverdale' Season 3
"That's good, and that's what I figured. I only know one high school kid (I tutor him) who watches it, and he totally takes it seriously. But he's kind of like that."

Rob Staeger (Grodd Mod) replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Riverdale' Season 3
"I'm pretty sure the Riverdale people know exactly how ridiculous and over-the-top it is. And the high school kids I know don't take it seriously either -- they're loving the same craziness we are. "
Monday
Richard Willis replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Riverdale' Season 3
"Not unlike the Batman TV show, some viewers can take it seriously, but I think they're having a lot of fun. Mrs. Mulwray (Kelly Ripa), the gun-toting mistress of Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos), was played by his real life wife of 20+ years."

Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Riverdale' Season 3

Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D. Corps members were implanted with technology that would allow them to utilize one Harbinger power (such as strength or invulnerability) at a time. H.A.R.D. Corps #4 was my first Valiant book.

Thank you Captain. I hope to be on your site for many years to come. I hope I can gleen as much information from your site about 1980s comics and politically incorrect ones. Thanks for having me.

Hey Captain, Someone named Ann who joined just two hours ago has tried to "friend" me, and wants to form a long term relationship with me! Lucky me! Can we investigate & ban this come-on? Thanks.
