"...The current ACTION #1000 commemerative hardcover, when it reprints stories thaf have been reprinted before, leaves on those little boxes that DC reprints of the 70s put on previously uncredited stories : including at least one for " Jerry…"
"They print the credits as they originally appeared.
If you're lucky, someone will poinyt out who's who in the introduction (if there is one).
If you're not lucky, the reprint editor may not even know.
Case in point.
I think it was for…"
"Something made me remember an unasked question. When Marvel reprints stories in which a pseudonym is used (Adam Austin for Gene Colan, etc) do they print the credits as they originally appeared or fix them?"
"The original concept for Showcase #100 was to feature all the characters who got their own features, but a few others were included as well (and there was a cameo appearance by Sugar and Spike, who weren't Showcase-ites). Firehair was one…"
"DC Timeline notes Showcase shifted to two-issue try-outs in 1957. "Challengers of the Unknown" and "Rip Hunter … Time Master" both appeared in four issues, but their third issues appeared eight months after their…"
"I'm with you there, Fraser. I'm not much of a Sekowsky fan, but even so I admit the "Diana Rigg" era of Wonder Woman was competent and even entertaining, if nothing else.
It just wasn't Wonder Woman.
As George Perez and…"
"Even in her own book, they assume that renouncing her powers means renouncing all her combat training as well. Annoying indeed. Though if they'd written an original character who was basically the same, I'd have liked the book. It has its…"
""Dropped Claus" is Santa's estranged cousin.
And that thought occurred to me as well Philip, that without the Canary cry Dinah was a step down from Diana, even without her powers. Canary becoming one of the greatest martial artists in…"
"Of course, we all know that Black Canary was given a super-power (her "canary cry") when she joined the JLA. Without that, she was "only" a woman with martial arts skills and years of experience or what Wonder Woman was at that…"
"That is a good question, Philip, and one I don't know the answer to. I do know they needed a female member when Wonder Woman lost her powers and quit -- but why Canary? Was Hawkgirl busy washing her wings? Was Zatanna elbaliavanu? And, duh,…"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
