I love these rambling Geek Talk episodes!

I've found a bit more on JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time:

Right on Shag! I would LOVE to see DC publish some comics geared toward their older fan base. I am definitely one of the disenfranchised who left even before the New 52. A series of Annuals or 80-page giants of the major characters would be great. Maybe focus on a particular era for each character, say Batman 1971, Superman 1990, Flash 1965, etc, and get some classic creators to work on the stories. Then switch the years up the next year. A JLA book by Conway and Perez would be a dream come true.

DC markets so many different versions of their characters, this seems like a no-brainer. Heck, the new JL: War movie has totally new designs, so there not even sticking to the New 52 there. A few comics with the old looks wouldn't hurt, and would give DC some good PR and generate good will by giving some of the older creators work.

I LOVED the Kubert school story. Growing up, I always dreamed of going there, but it never panned out. You lived that dream Rob. And I know it wasn't glamorous, but no one can take that away from you. AND you got to work on a Justice League book! How awesome was that! Tex sounds like an awesome guy, you painted quite a picture of him.

I wouldn't mind hearing a Geek-Talk episode every month, or at least bi-monthly. They've become my favorite of you Fire and Water shows. Well, outside of Who's Who, and maybe those Power Records shows. ;-)
