    Ah, the old 'adjust the dollars worth to allow for inflation' argument. I'll say it again, used to get 10 for a buck. Same 10 books today costs roughly $40 bucks. Add to this the fact that the books are distributed on a weekly basis vs monthly. Comics, much like live sporting events, shouldn't be an extravagance to a young, working family, but that's where we're at today.

    I have always loved the pure economic and soft watercolour style of Alfred Bestall.

    Great writer. What I remember him most for his is work on The Question. He took the character and put his own spin on him.

    Kinda strange that they chose to use dialogue from the Chris Reeve film here.

    I'm a big fan of many of the things Denny O'Neil wrote, but I really object on principle to what he did with The Question. He took a character with a very distinct philosophy and turned it on its head, making him stand for something 180 degrees from the original conception. It's the equivalent of turning Captain America into a Nazi. Even though my personal beliefs are probably much closer to O'Neil's than Steve Ditko's, I do not think it was right to take a Steve Ditko character and use it to attack and repudiate Ditko's philosophy and value system.

    looks like David Mack’s style.

    I hadn't read much of The Question before the O'Neil book, other than one story that was created after DC purchased The Charlton characters*. Due to this, for me The Question was a new-to-me character. Later, I found out more about Ditko's philosophy via a YouTube video featured the character Mr. A.

    *Crisis On Infinite Earths formally brought the characters into the DC Universe, but some aspects of the characters hadn't been settled. As an example, Captain Atom looked like he originally did and he had to stay a certain distance from Firestorm due to the conflicting nature of their powers, later they gave Captain Atom a new origin, history, nd look.
