Did you know Batman was really mostly created by Bill Finger and Kane stole the credit?

That can't be repeated often enough, Bob Kane came up with the name Batman ... that's pretty much it. I have zero respect for this guy, his behaviour was disgusting.

Just finished reading the latest issue of Justice League 3000 and I am finding myself enjoying it. IS anyone else still reading it?

Still reading and still finding it enjoyable as well. Love the fact that anyone could show up here.

Ok, I've been enjoying Batman Eternal thus far, but I had a really hard time getting into #11. I don't know if it was the weird story or the weird art or both, but I had a hard time getting through it. I think it was mostly the art that threw me off.

I thought the art and the writing was intentionally suppose to evoke memories of Morrison's run on Batman. The art especially which imo has shades of Quitely and Burnham.

^ That was my impression as well.


As for Justice League #3000...I'm on the borderline of dropping it. I absolutely LOVE Porter's art for this. The twins to me are the most interesting characters in the series.

Batman Eternal #11 felt like it was written by Morrison. You had that bizarre cartoon art, Scorpina, the Batman of Argentina, bizarre off the cuff dialogue...

What do people of the Superman: Doomed story? It's not great but it's not bad either, which is better than most of the New 52 Superman stories. Though come to think of it it's a total rehash of Trinity War which was about Superman being infected and turning violent and his friends trying to cure him...

Doomed hasn't been bad. At least the parts that I've read in Action and Superman/Wonder Woman. I'll be glad to get past it though.

That would explain it. I'm not a fan of Morrison. I was very happy when his run on Action Comics ended.

Sounds like if this is true they want to rehash Countdown: Arena...which probably isn't such a great idea.

Y'know, the more I read Rich's reporting about "The Band-Aid," the more I think DC is running a disinformation campaign against him, because nothing about "The Band-Aid" makes any sense at all. It wouldn't be the first time Rich has been taken in by utter bullshit, and it won't be the last.
