Over the past few years I have tended to stray from writing rebuttals to things said on the Internet, but sometimes some people are just so foolish that they must be taken to task. Rhymer Rigby penned an article for The Telegraph this past weekend entitled “No self-respecting adult should buy comics or watch superhero… read more

DC Comics is resetting the universe yet again, but don’t you dare call it a reboot! In 1985 DC Comics launched a 12-part series called Crisis on Infinite Earths where the company decided to reset its universe as things had gotten out of control with too many different timelines.
