From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 3 Titans of Relevancy (Part 2)

After completely taking the reins as Teen Titans editor, Dick Giordano began making incremental changes.



The most noticeable one was dropping Aqualad from the roster and replacing him with Speedy, the Green Arrow’s junior partner. Under the prevailing continuity at the time, the Boy Bowman had no official standing with the Teen Titans; he had guest-starred in the title twice before, and was listed again as… Continue

From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 2 Titans of Relevancy (Part 1)

It appears that the old Captain Comics site has vanished into the cyber-ether, taking with it a good deal of the written history of what was---and remains---the most convivial, informative, and illuminating comics forum on line. Most of you probably preserved sections of the old board. I’m afraid I didn’t keep as much as I should have. But one thing I do have is the original copies of the eighty-three Deck Log posts that appeared… Continue

Deck Log Entry # 100 "But I Always Thought . . . .": the Legion of Super-Heroes (Part 3)

Welcome back! As far as misconceptions regarding the Silver-Age Legion of Super-Heroes go, I’ve pretty much gotten the bile out of my system. So we’ll wind it up with a look at some of the minor mistaken beliefs which fans have taken to heart. These don’t crop up too often. Not because they are largely disbelieved, but because they…

The Stars of the Spanish American Style Part Three: A New Millennium

57 The X-Men’s loss was all of comics’ gain. By the late ‘90s, Joe Madureira, Chris Bachalo, Carlos Pacheco and Salvador Larroca were all finding better or more interesting work outside of the confines of the X-Men family of titles. Salvador Larroca’s stint on the Heroes Return mini-series…

Still with me? Good, because we have quite a few more long-held Legion of Super-Heroes myths to puncture. In fact, this time, we’re going to take apart what are probably the two biggest and most fervently believed misconceptions about the Legion. Let’s get right to it.…

Deck Log Entry # 98 "But I Always Thought . . . .": the Legion of Super-Heroes (Part 1)

I've avoided doing a "But I Always Thought . . . " piece on the Legion of Super-Heroes because, frankly, it was just too easy. It's like shooting fish in a barrel. You couldn't get through a year's worth of Legion stories in the 1970's without coming across at least one significant discrepancy from what had been well-established in Legion lore back in the Silver Age. And, besides, I'd pointed out enough of them in message-board posts. I just couldn't bring myself to take the easy…

By Andrew A. Smith

Scripps Howard News Service



Feb. 2, 2010 -- A lot of comics fans say they have “event fatigue,” meaning they’re tired of sprawling, company-wide storylines. If so, I hope that doesn’t put them off “Siege,” a sprawling, company-wide storyline that began at Marvel Comics in January.…
