    He references India fairly heavily in Invisibles, as well (with King Mob going there a few times).
    He's also involved in a re-telling of the Indian epic, the Mahabharat http://www.18-days.com/notes.html

    You really need to reevaluate your priorities if you go around on topics about a comic you refuse to read and brag about how you refuse to read it.

    Because I read Flashpoint #1 and intend to read the rest of it.

    Minor, I know, but bloody annoying for most Scots.
    Gotcha. No offense intended. I should have said U.K. If it is any consolation, there are people in my current city that think I am from Minnesota when I was really raised in Michigan, two states which while both north and begin with the letter M, share no border. I gave up correcting them long ago. Not the same thing really, but I get what you're saying. I should have known better.

    It's cool. It's not the mistake that's annoying, it's how commonplace it is amongst foreigners (particularly, and no offence intended, Americans). I personally blame the laziness of the American media.

    He's also in Azzarello and Chaing's Doctor 13 Miniseries... as one of the Architects... He's the one wearing the Batman mask.

    Rich did mention that, but a piccie is much appreciated:

    And then there were the Architects of the DC Universe. who appeared in the Doctor Thirteen story in Tales Of The Unexpected, with Grant Morrison presumed behind the Batman mask.

    The American school system is no picnic either. In college a couple of years ago, we had to write a paper on a country of our own choosing and 4 of my fellow students picked Africa and got passing grades. I'd be surprised if half of the people I went to high school with could find Europe on a map. I know the difference though. I simply misspoke.

    While I'm on the topic, am I the only one who loved Rachel Pollack's run on Doom Patrol?
    I'm afraid you might be. But wear that love like a badge of honor!

    Quoting Geoff Johns "I really like The Outsider as a brand new character... That's what's fun in this. It's not what you expect. It's not the same old, same old. That was very important to us doing the story. And it also makes this much more accessible, because you're meeting these guys for the first time, just like the Flash is. There are no other comics with The Outsider or Element Woman or Blackout or the S!H!A!Z!A!M! kids. These are all brand-new concepts that are there for the first time."
    So it's not the old Alfred Outsider. This is a brand new original idea. Johns said so, and he created the S!H!A!Z!A!M! kids.
