Five for Friday
I don't know if Spurgeon planned it this way or not, but shortly before Warner Brothers announced its documentary about the history of DC, he gave this Five for Friday assignment: Name Five Extended Moments In Comics History You Wish Had Been Documented On Film As They Were Happening.
1. The Rise and Fall of CrossGen
2. Marvel explores new genres during the Bronze Age.
3. DC vs. Captain Marvel
4. The Charlton Comics Story
5. The History of Archie
But after seeing some of the other responses, I'd change No. 5 to Jack Kirby: The DC Years.

This week's Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs was a response to Robert Kirkman's GQ interview where he suggested that dark, complicated plots for superhero comics are okay in Invincible and other creator-owned comics, but not for corporate-owned ones. Some great discussion follows because I have awesome readers.
