Why does this need a category for three pages? arent you jumping the Gun a bit?

  • The category is for founding this page eary !--Brown Shoes22 00:13, 25 August 2005 (UTC)
  • Putting them in the DC Comics Category serves that purpose just fine. --AjaxSerix 17:07, 29 August 2005 (UTC)

Hyphen or not?[edit]

OK, before anyone goes changing things, the current 2005 imprint DOES NOT have any hyphens (All Star NOT All-star). The original series from the 1940s for the most part DOES carry the hyphen (although they weren't anal about it, so it may not always appear). So please don't alter my changes on this to All-star (disambiguation), All Star Batman and Robin, All Star Superman, All Star Comics and All Star DC Comics. That means you too, Brown Shoes22!! We are fellow Edmontonians and have to stick together. I'm not saying don't delete this page, just don't overscrew with the hyphens. If ultimately this page is done away with, then the other pages must be amended accordingly. But, if we end up with a third "All Star" series as has been suggested, then maybe there is a place for it after all. Dyslexic agnostic 07:58, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

The third expected to start in 2006 ?[edit]

Wonder Woman is a good guess, Joss Whedon be doing a Wonder Woman (film)--Brown Shoes22 06:34, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

Speculation Dyslexic agnostic 11:07, 25 December 2005 (UTC)
  • All Star:Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Flash, Black Canary (She will be in All Star: Batman and Robin), Martian Manhunter. Is not out of the idea. But, the line is tie to the new Moives Warner Bros are doing.--Brown Shoes22 00:08, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Tie to WB Movies ?[edit]

In the Batman Begins two dice DVD Jim Lee said DC reopen All Stars doto the critical and financial success of it and the upcoming Superman Returns.--Brown Shoes22 20:46, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Ultimate Marvel was started for almost the same reason back then. --Destron Commander 02:43, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Teen Titans?[edit]

What does this animated series have to do with the All-Star imprint? Is it because this series also non-canon to other DC Comics shows and comics? In terms of multimedia, I think linking to Batman Begins and Superman Returns deem more appropriate to this article than the Titans link. --Captain Cook 09:53, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Ongoing series, or maxi-series?[edit]

??--DrBat 01:38, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

  • So far the All Star Comics are ongoing series!--Brown Shoes22 02:14, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Allstarlogo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Allstarlogo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Failed Imprint[edit]

I think it´s pretty obvious, that currently no titles are in production anymore. And withe the upcoming Earth One Stories, DC is trying another way of introducing new readers to their most popular heroes. Even All Star Batman is not published under the impront anymore and will be officially made part of the Dark Knight Universe. I think it is appropriate to talk of a failed impront in the article or at least mention the current situation. (talk) 08:55, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

I agree that it is very unlikely that we will see future comics under the "All Star" imprint moniker. However, we don't know that for sure. DC hasn't yet outright stated that All Star is over. That's why I think that passages like "...the imprint is effectively defunct" in the article are unwarranted. We could just as easily state that no titles under the imprint have been released or announced for the last few years. That would get the point across without making any assumptions that we as an encyclopedia probably shouldn't make. (talk) 03:52, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Notability being disputed?[edit]

Hi, user:Spshu recently added template:Notability to the article. The article seems to have enough secondary sources, and is well-known enough that it seems to have notability. Any particular reason for this tag? || Tako (talk) 20:26, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Well-known enough by who? Needs some mainstream coverage (of which All Star DC is the main subject) not just geek/comic book news sites. The article also has the problem of forum sources. --Spshu (talk) 21:27, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
The Newsarama forum sources weren't user posts; they were transcripts of an interview between Newsarama staff and Geoff Johns, and the forum post was simply used a comment thread. It was (years ago) how they'd do press and news releases. Aside from the links being dead, that's not at all an issue. I can replace the deadlinks to those with Archived links (or from the website itself, if they moved over their announcements section). Other than the broken references; everything is verifiable. Mainstream media is not a requirement of notability. Third party sources are. || Tako (talk) 21:56, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Mainstream media is a requirement of notability, just not directly. Since there are (primarily) comic book news sites like Newsarama and ComicBookResources there would be indiscriminate inclusion of most all comic book topics. "The number and nature of reliable sources needed varies depending on the depth of coverage and quality of the sources." Quality and nature speaks to having some academic and/or national mainstream media coverage as they have higher reliability. Spshu (talk) 19:08, 29 May 2013 (UTC)


Scott Snyder is going to make new series called "All-Star Batman". Wouldn't that mean that perhaps DC is planning to revive the imprint? source:

All Star Batman link[edit]

The link that's supposed to link to Snyder's All Star Batman instead goes to the page All Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder by Frank Miller. Snyder's All Star Batman doesn't have a page.Kevinstefanowicz (talk) 04:25, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

All Star Wonder Woman[edit]

I removed the text pertaining to Adam Hughes working on All Star Wonder Woman because it's hilariously outdated and irrelevant. He obviously didn't really work on the title after his Catwoman cover run. Indeed, the months-long delays between issues of Betty and Veronica prove that he's incapable of writing and drawing a comic on his own in a timely fashion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:57, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
