Sweating the Small Stuff - Intro



Copyright 2002 Glenn Walker

Who cares that the Earth-Two Superman wore blue boots in 1938 instead of red? I do. Continuity. It's a dirty job but somebody's gotta do it.

Somebody's gotta do it. When talented writers like James Robinson are linked to ineffectual editors like Archie Goodwin (R.I.P.) in "Starman" we get wonderful glitches like the original Black Canary's name becoming Diana rather than Dinah, the JSA murdering the Rag Doll and other horrors that could have been prevented had someone responsible been paying attention.

In coming columns we're going to sweat the small stuff together. Were Fury, Miss America or Wonder Woman ever really members of the Justice Society? We're gonna find out. What war produced Iron Man? Korean, Viet Nam, Cold or Desert Storm? We'll get that one straight too. Who is Kang really? That too. We'll even take a shot at that whole Hawkman mess.

So stay tuned for small stuff as well as reviews of the newest comics on the shelves and maybe a golden nugget from the past thrown in for good measure.

Continuity. It's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it.
