DC 75th Anniversary Winners
Well, that went by quickly.
Peter David was the first to stump me, your now-humbled expert. Its been so long since I watched Superman the Movie I missed his question: In what city and state did Miss Teschmacher’s mother live (prompting her to get Superman’s promise to save her?)
I guessed Newark but it was Hackensack. Peter will receive the character hat as his reward.
Mason asked, In the DC/Vertigo Sandman series, which supporting character began life in the Dreaming as Dream’s first raven? I answered Matthew Cable, forgetting that in Sandman #68, it was revealed that Lucien the Librarian was actually the first raven. That serves me right for not rereading the series as the gorgeous Absolute Sandman
volumes were released.
Elie got me with one I should know: The Order of St. Dumas was responsible for a number of scientific
innovations in the last thousand years. However, there was one field of
“science” that they went to a great trouble to disprove and keep the
secret to themselves. Which field of science was this? When he has a chance, he should post the answer, because I even checked online to find this information — which did not make it into my The Essential Batman Encyclopedia. His reward is the free digital download of the just-released Batman: Under the Red Hood.
Thanks for playing, everyone!
