I’ve been in the action figure world for about 20 years. So, it’s safe to say I’ve got a fair bit of knowledge on the terms that tend to be thrown around by collectors with little or no explanation as to what they mean. I generally try to explain a concept on its first appearance on this site, but much as Stan Lee once said to assume every comic book was somebody’s first, I too must assume that every review on this site might be the first to be read by a new visitor. As such, I’ve decided to put together a guide to some of the more frequently used terms and names that might show up.
What is it?:
One of the big two comic book companies. They are owned by Time Warner, and created Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, and many others. The name stands for Detective Comics, the name of the series in which Batman first appeared.
