Bio Billy Arrowsmith is a senior editor & administrator on several Wikia sites including the DC Comics Database, the Marvel Database, and the Valiant Comics Database. He is very hard-working and funny and handsome and you should hire him.
while reading the page "Recommended Reading" you created, I was wondering if someone should add DC's own list of recommended comics, listed in the annual "DC Essential Graphic Novels" publication. What do you think about it?
Hey, you should probably ask the same question to N8THGR852. He is the expert on Teen Titans around here and besides, MrBlonde has been away from the wiki for too long. Who knows when and if he will come back.
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'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.
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.
