Words To Live By

"The thing is to not become continuity’s bitch."
--Chuck Dixon


  1. HOLY TRIFECTA, BATMAN! Chuck Dixon, Doug Moench, and Alan Grant all posting on the same thread??? These guys were THE Bat Geniuses of the 90's!!!!! Fantastic writers!

    And they are all SO right. :D

  2. yeah, i thought my head was going to explode as I kept reading that thread. epic, epic thread.

  3. I'm almost certain Doug and Alan - at the very least, Alan - are sock puppets...

  4. Holy cats...

    You wait YEARS for someone to explain to you what the Internet is actually FOR, then one day somone links to THAT post.

    THANK YOU Val, that was brilliant.

    I'm off to lie down.

  5. Grant's Batman run with Norm 'deadlines for breakfast' Breyfogle was definitive!

    All the same, I'm not sure if that's him.

  6. I'm afraid it wasn't either Alan Grant or Doug Moench, folks. They were sock puppets and that stuff's been deleted. But Chuck Dixon is for real.

    Our fault for not catching it sooner; Brian's the only one on the blog with the professionals e-mail rolodex and it took a while for them to get back to him; also, well, we do have day jobs besides the blog, as blasphemous as it sounds.

    Still, I'm kicking myself for not thinking to check IP addresses till last night. The whole episode is giving me another go-round with my monthly quandary about whether or not to just turn off the damn comments when something of mine goes up. Or at least make people register. Or SOMETHING.
