Re: What was Mark Waid's issues with the 1986 retelling?
So it sounds like Mark Waid is nothing more than a crybaby silver-age apologist! For me, Birthright hit on the main points but wasn't as well rounded as Byrne's work. The additions of Birthright were long and drawn out as it relied on too much dialogue to explain certain things.
Basically what has happened in American comics is people have been trying to write their own versions of Dark Knight and Watchmen for the past 20 years.
The point that comics are at now is nothing compared to where they once were. And it'll never get back there either. - Kurosawa
