- Don’t fear the silly – Robot 6 suggests that comics should embrace some of the inherent silliness. After all, without 75 years’ worth of stories to give them weight, the idea of a man who dresses up as a giant bat and calls himself “Bat Man” is pretty silly.
- Ask Chris considers the mass media influence on comics canon. You know, elements like Harley Quinn and Rene Montoya, or the Daily Planet, or Kryptonite.
- It’s weird how often these Peter David articles from more than a decade ago turn out to still be relevant. For example, this one about redefining comics for adults, or changes to movie/TV versions of characters.
