From last week’s Nightwing #140:
As Dick Grayson views through maps of Manhattan at the library, a librarian approaches…
Deborah: “I see you’re looking at Washington Heights. Very different from the rest of the city. Almost like you’re not in Manhattan anymore.”
Dick Grayson: “Go there a lot?”
Deborah: “My brother lives there with his family, works as a real estate agent. Keeps trying to get me to move up his way so he can have a cheap babysitter on standby.”
Dick Grayson: “Not a bad thing to have family close.”
Deborah: “I agree, but I’m a downtown girl. Always have been, always will be.”
Dick Grayson: “The village?”
Deborah: “Positively. East Fourth Street.”
I love you, Peter Tomasi.
There should be more female superheroines with male sidekicks.
It is cute seeing Marvel trying to create a new branding with the word “Young.”

Pumpkin heads are awesome.
In this week’s Sinestro Corps one-shot, I thought that Earth Prime’s Superbo…what?!?! Hey!! Wait!!……………
Thank goodness that Everyman is dead. It will force DC writers to put a little more thought into their “twists”.
The alternate universe in Countdown 30 was the dumbest alternate universe I have ever read (not counting alternate universes that were designed solely as jokes).
Peter Tomasi has won me over – He is a good writer
Since Tony Stark is definitively not a Skrull, things do not look good for Jessica Drew fans.
First Wendell Vaughn, now they have killed off the second-greatest Avenger in history(after Wendell, natch)!! Marvel must want me to end it all.
If Wendell Vaughn does not return, I will end it all.
The latest issue of Justice League of America was the best comic written by Brad Meltzer yet.
It is unforgively stupid to post the new lineup of the Outsiders in HOUSE ADS in DC titles a MONTH before the series of FIVE ONE-SHOTS come out deciding who the new Outsiders are.
It is likewise dumb that a certain horrible female character is on the team, making it a particularly notable example of a “pet character” (“Batman says MY creation is awesome! So shouldn’t you agree?”)
Finally, it is dumb that the name “Outsiders” is blocked in the actual ad.
