So I work retail and I chose to use "Happy Holidays," as my parting words and occasionally I get snap-back on it... Had someone ask me "If [I] don't say Merry Christmas anymore?"

Well I do... if I have any indication they celebrate Christmas, if they are buying a Christmas card, a Christmas movie, if they wish me a Merry Christmas... I'll say Merry Christmas to them, otherwise I just feel like being inclusive. It's not the store's policy; it's my own personal policy.

"[In] the summer of 1993 [...] I was still new to the U.S. and I was struck by how powerfully my friends reacted to Bill Clinton, who had become president about eight months earlier. They had been so happy when Clinton was elected, as if he was going to fix everything. And when some time had passed and he hadn't yet done the things they'd expected, they were genuinely heartbroken, as if something deeply religious had gone wrong. It seemed clear to me that they were yearning for a savior, someone to sort it all out for them. So I thought I'd do a story, in the form of synoptic gospel, in which I'd give my friends the kind of president they wanted."

-- Neil Gaiman in Hy Bender's The Sandman Companion, 182

"In old comics, like old sitcoms, it didn’t matter what happened — at the beginning of the next episode you’re back in the status quo. Alan was the first person to go, “You can’t actually do that.” If Superman existed, he would change the world. Miracleman, with almost infinite power, creates a utopia as best he can and sets himself up as a god."

- Neil Gaiman

Probably not the best father/son relationship but here's a scene between Norman Osborn and his father. I may post a Norman/Harry one later but I'm still looking.

Good old Victor Fries. I love him when he's written well, but my standards for "written well" are narrow as all hell, even moreso than my standards for the Riddler and Two-Face. I can't think of a single, published comic (outside the DCAU continuity) that fits those standards, and the 1997 Batman: Mr. Freeze graphic novel - written by Paul "Heart of Ice" Dini, no less - isn't really an exception to that.

In the end, it comes down to the fact that I think Mr. Freeze is a character who should make limited appearances and be written with a maximum amount of effort in each appearance, while DC execs seem to think the exact opposite. Sooner or later, they'll find a way to twist any take on Victor to include an excuse to turn him into a recurring villain, even though the very state of being a recurring villain arguably undercuts what makes Victor the most effective: his buried humanity and the fact that, in the end, he might be the most noble man in Arkham Asylum.

But for what it was worth, the aforementioned graphic novel did include a welcome expansion on Victor's and Nora's romance, back before the Almighty raised his middle finger at both of them.

When Victor met Nora, behind the cut. )

Couldn't think of any specific stories that fit a 10th anniversary, so I figured I'd just repost an old one; a story from Paul Jenkins, who's run on Spider-Man IMO was one of the best.

"The Unwritten Fables," a five-part The Unwritten story arc in which Tom Taylor meets the cast of Bill Willingham's Fables, begins...



'Let's just say that my wish list of "Fables" characters that I was really, really desperate to write was very large, and thanks to Bill's generosity, I was able to write all or most of them.'

- Mike Carey
