Boys N the Hood

The latest contribution to Best Shots @ Newsarama.com is up and at 'em. One of the more hot debates right now over in the DC Universe is the apparent resurrection of Jason Todd, a.k.a. "Robin II". The funniest thing, to me, in this debate, is how some of the original voters who back in 1988 called in a 1-900 number to kill off Batman's oft-maligned sidekick are now crying foul because they claim that their vote didn't mean anything. Balderdash, I say. For starters, their vote did get the desired effect, but last I saw, it's like 17 years later, and I'd argue that the comic book superhero statute of limitations has more than expired. Shoot, we're seeing that right now with Infinite Crisis. Scores of writers, artists & editors have come and gone since the one event that made Jason Todd as close to a household name as he'll ever get, and if some newer creators have some interesting ideas in bringing the dead Robin back to life, bring it on. They're only comic books about heroes and villains in costumes, folks.

So, uh, does the value of my copies of the original Batman "Death In The Family" issues go up or down?
