And then I would introduce a character called “Mary-Sue”, who would totally rock

A propos Bat-Mite: Year One, more “Year One” books that wouldn’t suck:

Superman, written the way he was when he started out. A fighting mad liberal who’d beat the hell out of racketeers, war profiteers and slumlords, then go and trap some plutocrats down a collapsed mine. Have some truth, social justice and the New Deal way, capitalist pigs!

Wonder Woman, also in the original style. Wholesome, kinky fun for the whole family. Drawn by Melinda Gebbie.

Runaways, back when little Molly was just a twinkle in her parents’ gametes, and the rest of the kids were wearing nappies (that’s “diapers” to you Americans). Written and drawn by Jack Mendelsohn.

Uncle Scrooge. Oh wait, there’s already a pair of young Scrooge books, and they’re excellent.

And, all right, yeah, I’d buy more early Batman stories by Tony Millionaire.

Any other suggestions?

    Oh wow, I’d always thought something like that would be great… Dame Darcy would be a good choice on art too…

    Actually, since you brought it up the other day, I’d totally like to see Ace the Bat-Hound: Year One, if it was done in the style of Steve Bissette’s [b]Tyrant[/b]. Like, it’d be nothing but Ace the Bat-Pup pawing his mother and spooking the housecats, and… growing and stuff over the course of the year. Except it’d all take place in Gotham City so Ace could bark at the Joker on television and stuff. And it’d last more than a handful of issues. [i]Holy shit[/i], this could be DC’s next weekly series after [b]Countdown[/b]!!

    And I can use all the huge money DC gives me to learn how to use the internet properly! WOW

    While we wait for Gebbie on Wonder Woman, we can always read Trina Robbins. No idea if that series featured Etta Candy, tho’. If it ain’t got Candy, I’m not interested. Woo woo!

    So, basically, Jack Cross except, y’know, good.
