"The Bat-Man, you say?  Sounds like he had potential.  Too bad he didn't pan out. (lol) I agree, not much of a mystery - neither the murders nor the last page reveal.  An OK story at best.  It's going to take a few more…"

"According to the GCD, the Archives got up to volume 10, which covered through issue 92 of the series. So the new Bronze Age volume will be well past them, and it sounds like the first one surpassed them too, ending at 113. "

Hey John. How've you been?

Hello John,

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.

With all respect and best wishes,

Philip
