"Certainly appreciate your views, Captain!  I'd never read the original D.P. stories so I didn't have any pre-conceived notions about them when I read Morrison's run.  But on old favorites of mine, I'd had that same…"

"I never thought of the DP as an FF parallel, since everybody always talks about the X-Men parallel. I see it now. I find both arguments compelling. Doom Patrol was a huge favorite of the Li' Capn. Here was my first issue: I remember it vividly,…"

"A lot of weird parallels between the Doom Patrol and the X-Men.  I can't recall when I first heard about them -- probably sometime in the early '80s, although I never collected The New Teen Titans.  I did get the TPB collections…"

"So I wrote a thing sitting at the laundromat today: an explanation of why I *didn't* want to read any discussion of Grant Morrison here by way of my personal history reading his work. I thought better of posting it, then took a glance this way…"

"Yeah, at this point I don't see the sense in continuing a back and forth on the topic, but I did get a lot out of the conversation and appreciate everybody's engagement in this revived thread. Thanks!"

"Yeah, the Schwartz Superman books were one thing that made me consider a Bronze Age that lasted until 1986. Wolverine was fighting ninjas and whatnot while Cary Bates and Elliot S! Maggin were still writing stories up through 1986 like the one about…"

"Mention of Dick Lupoff reminds me of how much I enjoyed reading All in Color for a Dime and its sequel The Comic-Book Book. I used to own copies of both and sold them at one point when I was downsizing my book collection. I regret that now. The…"

"I think that's a good analysis, Luke, but I'm not as insistent as Mr. SA is that the ages have to be specifically tied to superhero features, not adventure character features in general. "

"A thing to note about the DP is they're particular like the early FF. Their first appearance came out the same month as Fantastic Four #16."

"Oh, I wasn't claiming Stern's Mansion siege story as especially significant, although it is often cited as a series high point. I just thought it was funny that I was thinking of a counter-example to my theory and then found commonalities…"

"And it really failed, because if you take the super and the hero away from superheroes, you get WW as Emma Peel and Green Lantern bored with using his ring so he punches crooks. This is one of the reasons why I don't like GA superheroes that…"

"I know what you mean, Jeff, about the Kupperberg version. It's a shame that Steve Lightle only lasted five issues on it. But I loved Erik Larsen on it when he took over, so I didn't have a problem making that transition. That last issue…"

"And the direct market really started becoming at thing around 1980 or so. By 1986, I was starting to pick up my copies of Who's Who and Crisis on Infinite Earths directly from comic shops so I wouldn't miss any issues. I'm really a…"

"That's a good point about Batman, Philip. I feel like that only helps strength my case, because then the Bronze Age is caused by a legitimate market reaction to the Batman fad ending."

Welcome to the Comics Round Table,

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mrs.katekwame5@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.
