Valerian


Part one of a big article (presented in easily digestible smaller bits, as usual) about a rather important series of graphic novels. It'll explain all the things. Yes, even *that* thing you thought nobody'd ever explain. That one's in part #3 in the article, but still do read it all in order 'kay thanks.

Joker

(DC Tangent version)

This is the Tangent Comics version of the Joker - from a separate DC Comics continuity. Anti-authoritarian, acrobatic vigilante with novelty gadgets and some curiously Batman-like aspects. And she's a curious precursor to Harley Quinn. I thought she was pretty cool, and sadly underused.

Tony Stark

(Old benchmarking notes)

Our old Tony Stark benchmarking notes, though they were our only Tony Stark article for about 20 years, which I'll admit is depressing. We keep them around since it's gonna take a long long while for our chronological Stark writeups to reach the 1990s.
