Footnote Comics

It has unfortunately been out of commission for almost two years now, but Stephen Lee's Footnote Comics remains a great resource for checking the facts on various comic series. And not merely in the fashion we do here, but also providing background on references that a comic writer dropped into an issue.

Comics from Alias to Y: The Last Man are covered, covering all sorts of subject material. Personally, I find myself drawn to the legal questions. For instance, Stephen has a great deal to say about Matt Murdock's libel suit against the Daily Globe. And I hadn't noticed the loose end from "Bruce Wayne: Fugitive" until Stephen pointed it out.
