    Denny O’Neil was released in 1980? Geez, write a few good Batman comics in the ’70s and DC chains you to your desk!

    Martha, I have an odd fondness for FLASH GORDON, too.

    And this *ahem” never old Jewish lady always cracks up at fart jokes.

    “Flash Gordon is a terrible movie I saw in 1980 when it was released, with co-columnist Denny O’Neil.”

    What were Denny and the movie in for in the first place?
