Um.....What?

So, for months now we've been hearing from DC that Infinite Crisis is going to restore some of the fun, the innocence, the lightheartedness in tone back to the DCU.

Like, for example, a drugged up, suicidal Elongated Man about to put a bullet in his mouth.

Excuse me? What the hell?

I can't wait for the "Heroin Junkie G'Nort Arc"!

(If by some strange reason Dan Didio is reading this: that was sarcasm. Do NOT give us a "heroin junkie G'Nort arc". Again, KIDDING.)

I think by "Lighter" their meaning weight. As in killing somebody off you could dump their body and the balloon would fly higher.

Or something like that.

He's not trying to commit suicide: that's Ralph having fun. The bullet just bounces around in his head a little, giving him a buzz.

Anyhow, that seems akin to Superman trying to kill himself by setting himself on fire: I just don't think it would work.

I think that Sue should come back as a ghost to help Ralph solve mysteries. Or as a dog!

Yeah, I would think G'nort would do some kind of "snort" storyline. I mean ummm....yeah...

What he meant waas that they'll tell lighter stories at some point, um later, when they get around to it, like, you know?

Expect that to be sometime around 2010, or when I have a badger tunnel through DiDio's torso and take over DC, whichever happens first.

Oh, I would love for a G'snort storyline...or any G'nort in general. Bring back G'nort, damn it!

I always thought that Sue Dibny should have became the new Spectre and she & Ralph would have a sitcom-y, I Love Lucy-esque comic. It's comic gold, I tell you, comic gold!

I have to admit that final page with Question is pretty kickass.

I was with Gus on Sue, actually.

I mean, a female Spectre with a sense of humor. Damnation run like a game show. It would have been beautiful.

but no, they just had to go with Sulky again.

But anyway, read Robinson's Batman. That was lighter and more fun than I've seen in a long time in those books, actually.

By.. um.. Batman standards, of course. But it was discernably lighter.
