“Clark. The Earth Moved.”

Sean Collins on me on Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again:

Steven Berg on The Dark Knight Strikes Again. I’d say “’nuff said,” but it really isn’t, because I’ve got to mention his wondrous description of the role played by the cataclysmic Superman-Wonder Woman sex scene. It beggars belief that people can read a book with something like that in it and think that said book was some sort of play-it-safe corporate sellout. I mean, it has a cataclysmic Superman-Wonder Woman sex scene.

Play-it-safe corporate sellout?

Somebody said that? No way! Who?

    Dude, all I got to say on the subject is this: your dissent done been commodified.

    (Oh, it was fun, but sure as hellfire wasn’t twenty bucks’ worth of fun. To commodify my own. —And I should probably note that “fun” in this context is damning with the faintest of praise.)

    It surely has been commodified. Play-it-safe and sold out, I’m not so sure about…

    DC played it safe. DC sold out. Miller created a unique book that was nothing like anyone expected, talking about a lot of things we all expected from a super hero comic book.
