The jury obviously had issues with some of those women, because he was acquitted of the most serious charges.

The media are depicting Harvey Weinstein's conviction as a women's issue. It is that, but we can't ignore that quite a few of the women who accused him look damned bad because they wanted SO MUCH to...

Apparently many people at DC thought 5G would destroy the comics. From what's been teased about it, they seem to have been right.

I'm sure they had sufficient reason to dismiss him. But yes, a lot of funny-book pros have massive egos and would be shocked to learn that their going away wouldn't destroy the industry.

They'll merge he universes. Because can you imagine how many comics and movie tickets that would sell?

What would be the point of buying DC Entertainment and then not doing that?

This isn't going to cause a wave of new ongoings to be launched. And even if it does, it'll just be an experiment that won't last long.

We've roasted Geoff over Baz and Cruz. As we should have. But DiDio must have been a big advocate for them.

For the Far Sector Lantern and the gay Alan too.
