Deck Log Entry # 125 The Lamp and the Lightning (Part 3)

Editor Julius Schwartz’s instincts had been on the money.  By the mid-1960’s, fans of the Flash and Green Lantern eagerly anticipated the regular spectacle of seeing their favourite heroes go into action together.  Writers John Broome and Gardner Fox had done a splendid job of building a friendship between Barry…

Who are the Mysterious Moderators?



I think a lot of us have taken for granted that everyone knows who we are and what we do. After all most of the serving moderators right now have been doing the moderating for as short as 4 years, but in most cases 7 plus years. 

First things first, this board is Cap’s board, he sets the rules and in most cases, when he is around to share his opinion makes the call on things. He is the one that welcomed Mr. Silver Age and his band here, and he is the…

Morning Glories and DC’s Trade Paperback Mistake

Points on Point One

Over the past several months, Marvel has been releasing special Point One issues.  These one-shots are supposed to take place between regular issues of their ongoing titles.  For example, Uncanny X-Men 534.1 takes place between Uncanny X-Men 534 and 535.  These Point One issues are supposed to be great jumping-on…

Deck Log Entry # 124 The Lamp and the Lightning (Part 2)

Mail from fans thrilled over Green Lantern # 13 (Jun., 1962) and The Flash # 131 (Sep., 1962) hit editor Julius Schwartz’s desk like an avalanche.  It was early enough in the Silver Age that having two super-heroes meet and team-up was still an uncommon, and exciting, event.  As tempting as it might…

My X-Men Dilemma

I was working on my pre-order list the other week and I ran into a bit of dilemma.  There are so many X-Men books that I’m running out of room for other stuff. 

 

Now I know I won’t get much sympathy from older fans who have been complaining about too many X-books since the late ‘80s when the…
