The latest brouhaha from the world of comic-books is the resignation of the co-creators of the Kate Kane story-line for DC’s Batwoman, with creators J.H. Williams and W. Haden Blackman posting on their blog that DC had ordered them to scupper the wedding of ex-soldier Kate Kane (aka Batwoman) to her female partner, lawyer Maggie […]

In this issue, publisher Rod Barzilay gives the statistics of how many stories and such they’ve had in thirty issues and at […]

Of course, Matt Murdock/Daredevil is a right-on seventies man here […]
