Just a Thought About Mini-Series and Story Arcs
Doug: I'm about done with my Marvel collection as far as the eBay listings go. Yesterday I decided to take the lid off the first DC longbox and get some things ready to go live (they do later this evening if you're so inclined as to check them out -- information is on the sidebar). While much of my DC collection has been pared down through the years, I did hang onto some "key" issues, arcs, etc. here and there. Of note was what DC was doing in post-Crisis Batman comics.
Doug: In the years after the Crisis on Infinite Earths event, DC pursued a strategy similar to what was catching on at Marvel and within their own publications -- the mini-series. However, with Batman they chose to publish these within the regular monthly books rather than as stand-alone series. Your thoughts on that, pro or con?
Batman: Year One (Batman #s 404-407)
