@tinyhandprez Old people liked it. If the Academy Awards nominated it, that's what that means. @kylepinion Get all the EC books! Except all the recolored ones. You can pretend those don't exist. @Grendal1969 Agreed! Both heavily Star Wars inspired but with a twist. Strong characters and great visuals. Licensed but not lifeless. @MatthewElmslie The ending is fine.

@TomKingTK What about a crossover that ties the promise of all those ads together? What’s the secret behind the TRUE history of the DCU? @Kevin_Church I never understood the complaints about participation trophies but if that's how they are distributed, now I get it. @ianmacewan @andykhouri I remember a time as a teenager when some younger kid asked me “do you remember Star Wars?”… https://t.co/DEdtsVeTWR @d5tar_ https://t.co/vI91FbFGUU @andykhouri @NickDerington Stagecoach maybe?

@kylepinion Corum is a big yes! @heartimecia What’s a “preoder”? Is that spelling part of the joke? @JAMALIGLE Why would he ever be inside the armor, hard light or metal?
