Dark Knight Returns is endlessly readable, full of iconic moments, satire, pathos and incredible art. I must have read it 250+ times.

That Trump felt emboldened enough to try to personally collude with a foreign government to shape the 2020 election *after* the Russia investigation is pretty good evidence that he believes there are literally no checks on him at all.

I'm sure most books are launched with the best of intentions, but this is the number one reason I find it hard to get excited about new Marvel/DC series. Starts with a great creative team, fill-in artist by #4, then main artist leaves by #8 to launch a new book and cycle repeats.

Kubert amazes me on so many levels.

If you can get your hands on ANY of his many Artist Editions (Tarzan, Enemy Ace and Tor) you're in for a treat.

Both got increasingly more confident and consistent. Their craft didn't falter but their work wasn't always more interesting. Harder to think of specific iconic images from their later years whereas there were some real doozies earlier on.

Are these the preferred collections? I got them all in one volume but the strips were small and poorly reproduced (and sideways, as I recall)

I think he was frustrated. At the same time--he did do some good work and he had isolated miniseries which were completed--like the Ring of the Nibelung Books 1-4 and the Sword of the Atom.

There was a lot of tease with Gil. It would seem like he'd found a new home and then do a short run and wander off--Conan, Spider-Man, Micronauts, Sword of the Atom and so on.

Problem is that Gil had a few books where he REALLY made a huge impact (both Warlock and Captain Marvel were redefined visually by him) and then he left and others got all the credit.

He had two--but he wasn't getting sympathetic inks and quite become who he became when he was working on Green Lantern and the Atom. In later years, Gil regretted not having worked on a steady book.

Plus there are books with stepped up schedules--Amazing Spider-Man is twice a month--how many artists can sustain that? But, yeah, meticulous art and overly detailed costumes sure doesn't speed up the process.

It's always the goal. DC hopes to have that with more Dark Knight, more Watchmen and various others. They always hope for something like that.

Yeah, I don't expect anybody to do a run like I'm attempting. I don't see that happening and at a Marvel or DC, I would think it'd be impossible.

There are definitely things which tie it directly to the time period--a Reagan parody, a Letterman parody, etc. but a great line is a great line.

A lot of books seem to be rotating artists. I couldn't tell you who the regular artists are supposed to be on many books.

What's stunning is that Trump didn't THREATEN to hold Ukraine security assistance hostage. He. Actually. DID. IT. He actually held hostage vital military aid to an ally AT war to pressure them to do a hit job on Dems. has a great overview

I think, in large part, it's due to artists shuffled off and on books so much that the writer is the only constant voice in most cases.

Disagreed. He’s fighting fascists. He’s literally fighting bad guys sporting Swastikas. Superman is a tool of the right wing government but Batman is a rebel.
