And now, apparently, DC has blacklisted theouthousers.com for writing pieces that make fun of DC and challenge their editorial decision. I haven't read anything on the site, but they admit in the following piece to writing in a sarcastic, humorous tone that they know could piss people off. Your mileage may vary, but once again DC looks petty and unwilling to listen to anything resembling criticism.
Listening to the comments, particularly Murd's, for the Green Hornet issue (still waiting for my DCBS order, aaarrggghhh!) it sounds like Waid really did his homework. The use of an Irish brogue is in keeping with the old time radio serials - which I've been listening to since talking with Matt at Super Show about "With or Without Pulp" and specifically about the Green Hornet series from NOW comics - where one of the supporting characters had an incredible Irish accent that just adds to the fun of these old radio stories. And secondly, The Green Hornet was, from the outset of the radio series, seen as a criminal mastermind. That was how he managed to insinuate himself into the underworld so readily.

Murd, you piqued my interest with the Monster Massacre HC and the fact that it's supposed to have an Alan Moore rarity within. So I started searching the interwebs to see exactly what story is in the book, and it does not appear that he does have a story as part of this volume. Yes, Moore's name is included in the rather pathetic description on Amazon, but every other piece I found that included a run-down of the stories in this volume had no Alan Moore stories. If you were ordering it for that, you may be disappointed.
Though, since it sounds like they may be using some stories from the old A1 series, it is possible that some of the shorts he had in there will find their way into this series (I saw it was being touted as a series of hardcovers in one piece). And it's possible things could change between solicitation and publication.
