Honestly, I've kind of enjoyed six solid days of Mike trying to wrap his head around an idea that everyone else got instantly. It's like a Discovery Channel special.

Har! laugh

Sayeth Mike just three months ago:

"Allen isn't an artist.

"I put a chain link fence in my back yard, but that doesn't make me a landscaper. I installed a new side panel in my basement shower, but that doesn't make me a contractor. I mow my lawn, but that doesn't make me a gardner.

"If anyone can validly call themselves an artist, then the word can have no real meaning. What? Are standards only for everyone else?"


That's ... a-heh ... that's good stuff.

I think Mike just annihilated Mike.

Year One was overrated and The Man Without Fear wasn't very good. So I'm still with the posted cartoon on this one.

Frank Miller even forgot that Gordon had a daughter and contradicted his own Matt-Elektra meeting.

Wait, did he? You mean Barbara? I thought Barbara was always supposed to be Gordon's niece, the daughter of his brother. Did Gordon have another kid as well?

All artists & writers who work on comics are creators of one sort or another. They create work just like when I write a SQL statement, I have created something and sometimes, they are indeed a thing of beauty. But we know there is a difference between certain creators - Kirby, Ditko, Lee, Liefeld - than others - Romita, Buscema, Heck, Bendis - but it's only a matter of degree.

Man, he's like some right wing preacher who proclaims that women who give birth out of wedlock shouldn't be called mothers.

Apparently.

Barbara was originally the biological daughter of Jim Gordon. Barbara also had a brother Tony Gordon who disappeared while hiding from Communist spies but later turned up to help fight the Sino-Superman but was killed.
