And of course, the Question of the Week!
This week’s question, submitted by Wooly Toots: I just reread Batman Year One and The Dark Knight Returns. Talking with others about them brought up their sequels. Consensus is those stories were bad and disappointing. Lightning doesn’t strike twice they say. But what is an example where it did? Where the follow-up story pulled it off or was even better?
