""That was all it took to flame the public's interest in it, and sales increased to the point where Maria showed a handsome income from it."
Similarly when the Production Code office found that "The Moon is Blue" was…"
"I didn't have a problem with it — the idea that DC's timeline was now formally stabilized was enough to make me happy (yes, I know). But they have swung back and forth on Did Batman Know Who Killed Them multiple times since the…"
"I loved the timeline. Particularly that it put the Doom Patrol, Metamorpho, etc. in the five year period before Superman debuts so they had their era to shine (which Mark Waid incorporated into his JLA: Year One).
As you say, now they just shred…"
"I always wanted Scooby-Doo Teamup to use Dr. Thirteen. Now I'm expanding it to want Mark Merlin in the story as well (and yes, I know it's been canceled).
Was the tuxedo meant to represent Mark's role as a magician?
I read a couple of…"
""The essential problem, as I see it, was that there is suspense in the notion of an ordinary man pitted against an unearthly powered menace, but magic versus magic is actually quite dull. "

"I'd be up for it. I just read Fadeaway Doom — I'm working through it at about one story every week or two as part of a Silver Age reread — but I can always go back and reread something if I need to refresh my memory."
"I have most of them in Bronze Age reprints but they look soooo damn good in the Omnibus.
Very much looking forward to ordering Batman Omnibus #8 as soon as I have some spare change. My respect for Golden Age Batman has gone way up since I started…"
"I see your point about the fisticuffs.
You're probably right about the smoking. I was amused when Agents of SHIELD had a 1930s set episode this season and even FDR wasn't smoking his iconic holder. It's just as bizarro as …"
"Commander, your comment about DC not getting why Marvel was a hit reminds me of William Messner Loebs making the same complaint about DC's reaction to image. In The Hawkman Companion he said DC concluded that mindless action and bad art were…"
