Randy Jackson replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Harley Quinn' is 'Suicide Squad's' breakout star
"I think it's good that there's some representation. I have not seen any of the movies in question, however, so I can't comment on the quality. "

Luis Olavo de Moura Dantas replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"Robert Kanigher, as others pointed out, sure seems to have perceived his own job as putting out "done in one" stories.  That was certainly typical of the time and should not count as criticism. But he had a wider range than those…"

ClarkKent_DC replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"As always, the question is "Which version?" The original Unknown Soldier, who was mostly featured in Star-Spangled War Stories back in the day, was not immortal. The second one, who appeared in a 12-issue maxi series (December…"

Randy Jackson replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"I always assumed the Batman/Sgt. Rock wartime team ups involved the Earth 2 Batman and Rock, which would allow for them interacting during the war. Of course, those stories were also part of the Haney-verse (another writer who never let anything get…"

Richard Willis replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"ClarkKent_DC said: Were those stories written by Bob Kanigher or Bob Haney? Haney was the principal writer on The Brave and the Bold for a long time, and Bob Haney was never someone to let continuity get in the way of a story he wanted to write, God…"

Jeff of Earth-J replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
""Were those stories written by Bob Kanigher or Bob Haney?" "I think that everyone is confusing Robert Kanigher with Bob Haney" Whoops.  Yes, please take everything I said about "Bob Kanigher's Brave &…"

Philip Portelli replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"I think that everyone is confusing Robert Kanigher with Bob Haney as far as Brave & Bold is concerned. I've stated numerous times that Haney's Batman is a protean hero. He literally fits any role that Haney needs him to…"

ClarkKent_DC replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"DC eventually bought its way out of that little problem."
Monday
ClarkKent_DC replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"It would be nice, but I don't know if there is one. One of the "Hero Histories" in Amazing Heroes did cover that, but I don't remember which one."
Monday
Richard Willis replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"JD DeLuzio said: A similar thing happened with TV. Story arc-driven shows allow the deeper exploration of character, settings, plot, and so forth. The episodic approach often ignores continuity, but it allows one to sit down and enjoy a whole story…"
Monday
Richard Willis replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"ClarkKent_DC said:: If Kanigher wrote any stories with Rock alive after the war, that goes to the point Rob made above: He's telling stories, not continuity, as Rob astutely notes: Yesterday I spent some time looking at GCD and the DCfandom…"
Monday
Rob Staeger (Grodd Mod) replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"That's a great point about Rock continuity. It's naturally built on the war's historical timeline, but Kanigher's willingness to jump around in time allowed him both variety to his stories and settings and at the same time make…"

Jeff of Earth-J replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
""In the interests of pedantry, it was 1, 2, 4, S, and X." I figured I was off by a couple of Earths, but I didn't bother to verify before I posted. I was thinking "Earth-C" was "Charlton." Wasn't Earth-X the…"

Dave Palmer replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"Maybe it rises to the level of irony, but Kanigher had in mind a “continuity” for Sgt. Rock that is violated by every story featuring a post-WWII Rock.  If I remember correctly, in Kanigher’s mind Rock was the last combat…"

The Baron replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Robert Kanigher and the role of a fiction writer
"In the interests of pedantry, it was 1, 2, 4, S, and X.Earth-C was where Captain Carrot came from."

Hello Mr. Jackson. You offer an interesting idea of "the four just men" as maybe-inspiration of the Joker's crimes in Batman #1. So, what do you think, where does that pirating-radio-to-send-threat-idea in 1940 comes from? Thank you very much
