An honor for Wieringo, with solidarity for Impulse

The Beat blog's got a press release reporting that Project: Rooftop is doing a special tribute to Mike Wieringo, who sadly passed away almost two weeks ago, requesting submissions for redesigns of Bart Allen who Wieringo co-created with Mark Waid in the mid-90s.

That sounds like a show of solidarity for Wieringo's creation, which is certainly a good idea. Similarly, I'd suggest that anyone who was a fan of Impulse years ago should write to DC and tell them that they disapprove of their ludicrous offing of Bart. In fact, I noticed, curiously enough, that DC recently seems to have developed a bizarre habit of killing off characters who were created during the 1990s. What they have to gain from that is beyond me.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
