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 # 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…
