    Giffen had his tongue firmly in cheek when he described Sargon the Sorcerer (created in the 1940s) and Ibis the Invincible (who was in Whiz Comics #2 in 1940) as "newer guys," right?

  2. Brian Alvey says:

    The two lines that now have me the most intrigued about this series:The DC hell will not resemble, aside from the fact that it's about damnation and torment, any of the hells that we've seen in comics before.andI think people will be surprised by some of the characters that they discover have infernal powers, or powers that are based on infernal magics and that type of thing.

    • Rick Marshall says:

      Yeah, he told me a few of the characters that will turn out to have infernal powers, but I've been sworn to ultra-top-secret-super-secrecy.

    The single most interesting idea about Hell I've ever read in a DC titles was in Phil Foglio's Stanley and his Monster mini. In it, he put forth the idea that hell is exactly what you think it is. If in your mind, hell is fire and brimstone and pineapples up the ass, then that's what is. If you think Hell is a long white hallway that you just keep walking down, then it re-forms itself to that image.

    If Keith wrote 'The Penny Saver' I would read it.
