Stalling for Time, But

.....I noticed that I recently had an increase in pageviews. Because I hadn't realized until a few months ago that Google gave me the means to eliminate myself from the counts, I hadn't placed too much significance on the numbers. Still, almost a third of the views are from other countries, and I know I can't possibly be re-reading myself that much, even for editing purposes. I should acknowledge that there's been an enormous influx of views from Poland, Denmark and Europe generally. Maybe they're just now getting the "Batman:Brave and the Bold" animated episodes and want a crash course in chronology. Or maybe they've enjoyed the paperbacks and have just caught on that there are hu-u-uge gaps between the Drake and Morrison, or Morrison and Giffen periods. In any event, I've just finished the Gar-continuity post (previous post), so I need to offer an incentive to wait for the list of all Mal's appearances. I found this today:

.....Hope you like it as much as I did. Hell, I just hope the link works. Do zobaczenia.


  1. Great great pic. I love that thing the Chief's holding.

  2. And knowing the Chief, I'll bet he threw it together at a moment's notice. I don't know if you've read my Byrne Period essay, but this is just the sort of thing I'm sure Byrne had always intended to do, not the compromise series he eventually did. He had already done retro series for X-men, Spider-man, Superman and the World's Finest team. If DC had wanted a DP title with the feel of a relaunch, they should have let him do a series set in the Original Period but keeping with post-Crisis history/protocol. He would have been over the moon. And the results would have been great.
