This theory has been floating around for six years now, and it doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Namely, that Batman kills the Joker at the end of The Killing Joke.
Once again, we’re in the first week of August, aka Munch Week, a time when a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of Homicide and SVU’s John Munch. And, in honor of Richard Belzer’s 75th Birthday today, I thought it’d be fun to cast the Munch Ex-Wives we’ve never seen.
Stan Lee’s legacy is too great for just one person to sum up, so I asked some prominent fans and professionals to share their recollections of Stan.
I see it more and more often these days: People complaining about politics in a creator’s stories. Usually, they’re offended because the creator’s politics don’t align with their own, but sometimes, they’re offended because there’s politics in there at all. It’s a dumb argument, because politics have always been a part of superhero comics.
It’s not often that you get a chance to walk around in your own imagination. When I made an impromptu trip to Baltimore last fall, I knew there was one thing I HAD to do: Visit the building where HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET was shot 25 years ago.
Ryan Reynolds has announced that he’s remaking the 1985 cult classic CLUE. While I don’t think that CLUE necessarily needs to be remade, I have to admit it’s an intriguing idea.

It’s an interesting question: What episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series are explicitly in continuity because they were referenced in the Trek movies? Could you state that, say, “A Taste Of Armageddon” definitely happened to our heroes because it was referenced in one of the films? Could you find references to the entire television series if you looked hard enough?
It seemed like an interesting challenge. And since I was going through a bout of insomnia when I first read the question, I decided to find out.
