Let’s take a look back at this week’s most popular posts:
Mostly, the solution is that this problem has to be noticed every time and planned for. It has to be dealt with. To get back to Arrow and The Flash, all it would take would be a scene or two explaining why the Flash can’t intervene (or can’t intervene yet) to safely push this question away and let us carry on with the story. (And it has to be satisfying, beyond a “sorry, I’ve gotta go,” scene or a “I called but he didn’t answer,” line of dialog. Really planned for).
Careful writing, as always, is the best answer. Or, failing that, just not watching stuff with me because I’m like this about everything. I can only apologize.

In the spirit of getting peeks through windows, I’m going to share with you 12 comics artists you could stal– er, follow on Instagram, based on my personal interests as well as a few suggestions from fellow Panelteers. Feel free to add even more in the comments below. Also, it should go without saying, but this list is in no particular order. Everyone here is super rad.

At the awesome experience that was the Toronto Comics Arts Festival, it became abundantly clear to me that I should be reading more webcomics. More than one panelist noted that that’s where new artists are coming up and making waves before getting assigned to mainstream projects — witness the rise of Noelle Stevenson, for example. It’s also an easy way to get a fix during a light week. (At least it is if you’re anything like me and trying to keep your pull list lean.)
And I used to read them! Oh, how I used to read them. My Google Reader was stuffed full of ’em. And then, one day, I just … stopped. And then Google stopped supporting Google Reader, and now it’s a couple years later and I can only just begin to remember what I used to follow. So I took to Twitter (like you do) and demanded people share their own favorites with me. Thanks to them I now have a folder full of delight, both newcomers and classics (and by classics I basically mean extensive, hugely time-sucking archives).
