Reading Room: Dwayne McDuffie's "Justice League of America"

The late, great Dwayne McDuffie was the story editor for Justice League starting in season 2, and he served in that capacity for the duration of Justice League Unlimited.

Reading Room: Grant Morrison

Sentient universes. Cybernetic war machine rabbits. Fiction suits. Singing evil to death. A guy who hunts other men for their beards. In an industry where “guy in tights punches other guy in tights” seems to qualify as enough to build at least a miniseries on, you might occasionally be surprised to stumble across an issue […]
