I'm not familar with Jemas, having left comics before Bob Harras
stepped down.  But Didio's statements (like, for example, "I want to
kill off Nightwing, it's not like he's ever going to be Batman anyway,
so he's just kinda redundant, right?") seriously undermine your view of
him as being more pragmatic.

You mean, if I wasn't dirt-poor & working two jobs.  I'm now splurging
and buying about six comics a month-- at least one of those has the
words "Donald Duck" in the title.

Oh, and, welcome back, Jesse.  Glad to see you got the net access back.
 (If you did.)
