  • It is a very sad day for comic book lovers worldwide.
    Denny O'Neil did so much in the '80s including hiring Frank Miller for his amazing Daredevil run. Don't forget he was the editor on Batman for about fifteen years too. Not to mention he wrote a slew of Batman titles and created some memorable new villains. He re-invented Green Arrow and Green Lantern on his killer run with Neal Adams.
    I'm really unhappy with this news. I hope it wasn't Covid-19 related. Sad

  • Came across this today and thought I would post it here

    “Make me laugh. Make me cry. Tell me my place in the world. Lift me out of my skin and place me in another. Show me places I have never visited and carry me to the ends of time and space. Give my demons names and help me to confront them. Demonstrate for me possibilities I've never thought of and present me with heroes who will give me courage and hope. Ease my sorrows and increase my joy. Teach me compassion. Entertain and enchant and enlighten me."

    "Tell me a story.” - Denny O'Neil, from The DC Comics Guide to Writing Comics
