  • I just started reading Batman's comics in order based on your list, and wondered how I could also follow along Robin as he gets started with the Teen Titans. Which series should I read to do that?

  • Hi. I go to this site a lot for information on characters. I notice a lot of character profiles say "history has not been written yet" etc. I have access to many of the books that some of these characters have appeared in (Wizard of Light (Doctor Drago) the Robby Reed foe, for instance). I would not be able to do it on a regular basis, but as I am able, I'd like to do some of the characters that are unfinished (and some that are not listed at all, such as Zastro, the Alien Wizard, and Zomzu, the Cave Colossus). I think I can work through an existing template (such as Doctor Drago), since all I need to do is just type away in the sections provided. But, how would I start a template for a new character like the two that I mentioned? Also, if there is anything else I would need to know, please feel free to enlighten me. Thanks.

  • I tried to add Blockade Boy to the Legionnaires #43 listing.....but had problems....Can you fix it? Thanks

    • I fixed it. The problem was, you added only one } at the end, which made the entire page template break. It's one downside to our fairly complex and intense use of templates.

  • Hello,

    I'd like to inform you that in wake of the new "Titans" series being announced for 2018, I've went ahead and created a wiki for this series. I just have one issue.

    The url "titans.wikia.com" is used as a redirect for this wiki. Can you assist in deleting it as a redirect so I can use it for Titans Wiki? Considering that the titans are just a small part of the overarching DC universe, I think the url is more fitting at Titans wiki rather than sitting as a redirect that nobody uses for this wiki.

  • Hi! Your Batman chronological reading order is terrific. However, I don't see "Year Two" listed. Where should that one be placed? Thanks!

    • I didn't include Year Two because it's pretty optional. It's not a bad story, but it's also not really that memorable. It's also been completely non-canon for a very long time. I can't even think of other stories that reference it. Both Year Two and Year Three went out-of-continuity with Zero Hour in 1994, so neither of them lasted very long. If you feel like you personally need to read it for completion sake, I would recommend doing so right after Year One since it's published before any of the rest of the stories on that list anyway.

    • Ahhh, OK. I hadn't realized that Year Two (and Three) had been wiped out of continuity since Year One had remained. (Was it because Year Two gave a definitive conclusion to Joe Chill?) At any rate, thanks for the explanation (I agree that excluding was a good idea, in that case) and for your reading suggestion! :)

    • Yeah, Zero Hour basically wiped out everything involving Joe Chill. The Batman writers at the time decided that they didn't want the murderer of Batman's parents to be a specific person... the idea being that any criminal Batman deals with might actually be his parents' murderer. That was canon until Infinite Crisis in 2005, after which Grant Morrison's "Joe Chill in Hell" story brought Joe Chill back. Year Two really never gets referenced anywhere... all of the stuff with Batman teaming up with Joe Chill and using a gun and contemplating murder is just something people have decided to wipe from the Batman mythos.

      I don't think Zero Hour was a hard reboot for Year Three, but Dark Victory definitely went on to become the new canon for Robin's origins with a very different take on Tony Zucco. It didn't explicitly change at Zero Hour, but that's the closet item in Retcon Roulette that would make sense.

    • Gotcha. Thanks for the insightful explanation! :)

  • My apologies for messing up the linkage in Action Comics Vol 2 52. I'll go back through my contributions and fix any others I fumbled. I just touched up the ones from Superman Vol 3 23.1: Bizarro--could you give it a quick looksee to make sure I'm doing the links correctly?

    Many thanks!

    • No worries! Yeah, you are doing it correctly now. This is a tricky period in general because we're in the process of changing our infoboxes to be more mobile-friendly. It used to be that you could just type in "Action Comics #957" into the NextIssue field and it would output Action Comics #957. We're working on getting that functionality restored, it's just not working properly right now.

      In case it's not clear (it probably is, but just in case)... using the "#" symbol inside the "{{c}}" template is okay, because the template recognizes that character and knows how to turn it into a useful link. I can type "{{c|Batman #1}}" and it cleanly outputs Batman #1. But when you use "#" in a normal [[hyperlink]], it just treats everything before the "#" symbol as the actual link and everything after it as the subsection on the page. i.e. Suicide Squad (New Earth)#Legends will take you to the "Legends" subsection of the Suicide Squad (New Earth) page, and Action Comics #957 will take you to the Action Comics page and then look for a subsection titled "957."

      also, in case nobody has complimented you on this yet, the work you've been doing on the Rebirth pages lately has been great!

  • Holy moley! This is happening! Blue Beetle, Captain Atom and World's Finest Comics, too, maybe, please? DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 19:21, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

    • Haha, ideally we'll get to them all eventually. We just decided to start on The Flash and I already know this is gonna take fucking days. There are so many shitty relics on this site from the old days when they thought including 'the' in a title would ruin alphabetical categorization. Firestorm is another big concern... and I've always been bothered by shit like Superman: Man of Steel Vol 1.

      It's just a matter of somebody actually doing the work.
