–JK here … over the last couple of days, we’ve had to delete comments and close a few threads because some people can’t discuss things like the new Dark Knight trailer, Dan DiDio or a variety of other topics without getting personal, insulting other fans, insulting comic pros, etc. So please, keep it civil.

They also talk to Jeph Loeb and Adam West.
