This is an excellent idea for a feature and I'm really glad you started with Gail Simone. She brings a unique voice to her writing, and her handling of Babs and Nightwing's relationship is a lot of fun. I enjoyed her work on BoP. She followed Chuck Dixon which is not something any sane writer would ever want to do, and I really like aspects of her Batgirl...however that being said, I have to vote for her Secret Six run. Secret Six was Gail firing on all cylinders, and her take on Catman reworked a character that had little to no relevance in the DC universe, and actually made him someone to root for.

Some ideas for future features:

Warren Ellis - Thunderbolts and Freakangels

Alan Moore - From Hell and V For Vendetta

Howard Chaykin - Black Kiss and Bite Club

John Ostrander - The Specter and Grimjack

Steve Englehart - Doctor Strange and Captain America

Mike Baron - Nexus and Badger

Garth Ennis - Preacher and Hellblazer

Matt Wagner - Grendel and Sandman Mystery Theater

Dark Horse is not on Comixology because they have their own digital comics site: digital.darkhorse.com.

Come on you guys, Angelina Jolie is far too feminine for the Desire role. You need someone more androgynous that can pull off feminine, masculine and a disturbing mix of both.I'm sorry but A.J. is all woman all the time. A better fit would be someone like Tilda Swinton. In re. a Sandman movie... I get that JGL is a fan, but I'm not sure he has enough star power to keep Neil Gaiman involved when Hollywood pisses him off and he walks... and with David Goyer involved... that's like getting Michael Bay involved in a TMNT Movie... oh wait. I'll probably go see this just to see what they could possibly do with such a huge sweeping plot in 2 hours, but I think @billy_batson said it best. "You'd have to skip the majority of it for the main plot." The devil (and most of the fun) is in the details in the Sandman mythos, all the little asides, and the side plots that weave together to become soooo important later. Yeah, not going to get my hopes up on this one.

@pikahyper: Yeah so, you're much smarter than me which we knew already. I didn't think to do that in the first place and I already have the new one in place so one of them needs deleted. Sorry man.

Would you please delete this story arc page for Hard Times. I'm revamping it with the graphic novels seperated out from the story arc links to keep it more in line with previously established format.

Thanks,

Dan

Okay kids you all have inspired me to go back through my comics collection and take a tour through my 90s era comics. I'm part of the old guard who started collecting in the 70's and I never really stopped. I have solid representations from every modern decade and my Google-Fu is generally excellent so i think I've got my list in good shape. I disagree that most of the 90s decade was crap and in fact, I've made a list of what I consider the good stuff from that era. You can access it here: What's So Bad About 1990s Comics. Feel free to comment or suggest stuff I missed... I made a section just for that. And please, if you feel the need, don't hesitate to generally just rail about how much I suck for liking quite a lot of what happened in comics during the 90. You are all welcome with your informed opinions and I love to debate. Special thanks to kgb725 for starting this whole thing.

Affleck may be, "Done with the superhero stuff." but he's still a comics fan and... IT"S FRIKKIN BATMAN. You don't say no to that... like ever. That's how we ended up with Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and quite frankly Christian Bale as well... as Batman.
