Re: [DCU] Greetings from Third Rail Design Lab
- Well, Thaddeus T, I admit your attempts at metaphor are curious. The
intent of the original question was: anyone want to see some art, for
free, and if so, DC only, or multiple publishers. I'd say probably 40%
of my mainstream work is DC characters, but you have illuminated me to
the fact that this group is intended for comics discussion rather than
inclusive of art. I've got no problem with that. If this isn't a good
fit for my offer, no harm done.

- I can understand the "Let's talk about DC Comics only" point made. However, there has been a lot of off topic things that have been discussed here, and having an artist wanting to share his art does not seem that bad when I recall other topics, including a rant on people fitness and their lack of exercise.
Truth be told, there hasn't been a lot of interesting things said here in quite some while, and if this board was getting a hundred messages a week on topic, I would tend to agree with a "stay within DC world" rule. But seeing how vacant this board is most of the time, I cannot see why any discussion concerning comics would be so vehemently discarded.
- Hi Skikantaza,
Your post gave me a nice surprise, you describe my group exactly
with all the main DC characters as well as those DC borrowed from other companies at one time or another like TARZAN, THE PHANTOM, DOC SAVAGE(huge album on him) PETER CANNON THUNDERBOLT, CAPTAIN ATOM etc. I know you'll love it...
Hope you also like all things Batgirl, Bat-Woman, Bat-Hound,
