I'm seeing some pages where specifically the themes are getting edited out. I don't care that they do it, I just wanna know if that's something to omit when creating a page or remove when a page has it.
No, you don't need to remove hem. But things like the Superman one (blue on blue) and the Star Sapphire ones are bad to read for visually impaired people. I haven't researched a great deal of things on accessability, so I can't inventorize yet to see which should be removed and which changed.
I didn't want to move it, because it's a big one. It's also a page that will be added to pages a lot... and cleaning up Paris/Appearances and Smallville/Appearances is a weekly chore, the same would go for Apokolips. If we need to disambigate with the embodiment or w/e, we can use the hatnote; I recently revamped the old Distinguish tags. I just need to find the stray line breaks it adds, but for the rest it works.
That wouldnt work since its not just a single chracter from an unknown world like all the others, its an unknown universe and theres a Bruce Wayne in it who should get his own page. Could we try Dark Multiverse:Knightfall or something similar?
Also, future issues will come out with the "Tales from the Dark Multiverse" oneshot title. Should we delegate them all to a "Tales from the Dark Multiverse Vol 1" page, or treat them like the Year of the Villain oneshots and leave them be?
I think we should put them under a vol 1. As for YotV, we can put it under the YotV page like we did for Forever Evil one shots.
Next time a movie comes around, should we make a post the day of it's release for spoiler discussion and send everyone who posts there to prevent repetitive posts?
I didn't find any mention in the movie. As far as I understand, Gaiman owns the copyright to the text. Most likely the movie does not apply to DC or Avon.
"Stardust was first published as a serial, in a format that resembled four issues of a square bound comic book, by the comic book publisher DC, which had a long history of publishing fantastic and best-selling graphic novels and comic books by Neil Gaiman. But Stardust was a novel in text form, what librarians like to call a chapter book, sumptuously illustrated by Charles Vess. Stardust was later collected into several book editions, including the Vess illustrations, again published by DC. Gaiman retained all the rights to his writing, while DC owned the Vess artwork. So Gaiman was able to sell the rights for text-only editions of Stardust, the first of which was published by an imprint known as Spike, part of Avon Books. These text-only editions differ little from the DC texts."
So, I created categories for DC Ink and DC Black Label, but they don't seem to work. Do they some type of special code in order to work? I didn't find any by looking at the other categories in Source Mode.
I'm new to DC comics. I have read a few like the Flashpoint, Identity Crisis, Arkham Asylum, but I want to start reading them from the beginning. My friend is advising me to read Vertigo but I haven't got a clue what that is. Can someone help?
This is the kind of question better asked on the Discussions. Nevertheless, I'll answer it a bit here.
Vertigo is an imprint, founded 1993 and to be shut down next year. It has a combination of more adult stories in the DC Universe, as well as multiple self-standing titles. When people say "read Vertigo", they usually mean Swamp Thing, Green Arrow and Hellblazer.
Read them from what beginning? 1938? 1986? 2011? 2016? Those are the major reboot entry points. DC publishes 50-ish comics a month. Sturgeon's law applies: 90% of them is crap. Nobody reads all the titles, there's simply not enough money and time to do that. There's definitely not enough money and time to catch up.
You don't learn about DC Comics if you read everything. You only learn to hate it.
When you ask for recommends on the Discussions... a word of warning. Many people are fans of a particular character, and by now have extensive lists of storylines they recommend. Enough to bankrupt you. I recommend thinking of a character, team or genre you wish to learn more about, and ask for recommendations on them.
Thanks for the answer! I like the Green Arrow from the TV series, but from my bit of experience in Marvel, I know that comics and Movies/TV series are worlds apart. Anyways, now I will limit my queries to discussions only. Thanks again!
Yeah, a lot of those non-mainstream comics fall by the wayside. You can create those yourself, or I can try and see if I can CSV that with a bot one of these days. Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? Vol 1 also needs some love.
