This is “Point/Counterpoint in the Blogosphere…” where we take a look at what has YOU talking. Twice a week, I’ll be showcasing two related discussion points about a particular topic, to help you keep up with some of the hot topics in comic fandom.
When a popular character undergoes a drastic change of character, the results can be very complicated and messy. In the case of Cassandra Cain, since her reappearance in Robin, One Year Later, her change has gotten a largely negative reception.
The interesting thing though, comes of what happens after. When the writer of the issues in question comes forward to explain the motivations and thoughts behind the character change. Recently, Adam Beechen, the writer of Robin, gave a couple of interviews to CBR, addressing this change.
David Brothers at 4th Letter points out a particular part that he liked from one of the interviews.
Diamondrock from Title Undetermined is less happy about a quote from the other interview and explains why.
Today’s P/CP is less about a direct contradiction/opposition as it is an attempt to relate a couple of different responses to related issues. They’re very interesting to read, take a look!
