Message from the editor: Dear professional fans, believe me I know. I know that Spider-man had many more versions in comics, TV and the big screen. I know that Superman had a black and white version. I know that even wonder women had more steps along the way. And yet, in our world today there are places to dive deep into details and there are places in which we look for a quicker view. It’s not necessarily bad. The quick view, with the major steps only, grabs much more attention, provokes interest and conversation, and then we can take it from there. OK?
