RE: The third issue of Morlock 2001 ends with the main character being killed. Character appears to be, yet comics characters often appear to be killed in a cliffhanger ending and survive. The Atlas Archives page for this issue, at, does not confirm that the character is definitively killed. - Tenebrae 12:23PM, Aug. 10, 2005


RE: "ne'er-do-well son, Charles 'Chip' Goodman" -- while Jon B. Cooke in Comic Book Artist #16 (article online at does use that description, it is in the context of a magazine article with a point-of-view. It is not a quantitative term, and would seem to require some solid evidence before it should be used in an encyclopedia entry. What makes him ne'er-do-well? Did he drop out of college? Had he been in jail? Many people live off trust funds and never work yet are called jet-setters, while Chip Goodman did take on responsibility. - Tenebrae 12:30PM, Aug. 10, 2005


The content of this article had been lifted wholesale from the abovementioned piece. I have gone through and added/clarified details based on additional sources and my own collection - - Tenebrae 12:33PM, Aug. 10, 2005

Fair use rationale for Image:Devilina2.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Devilina2.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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Hi, Spshu. I'd like to ask about this move to Seaboard Periodicals, which, as you note, is the formal name of the company. However, under Wikipedia naming conventions, we're supposed to use the subject's common name, and this company is routinely referred to as Atlas/Seaboard. Certainly, a change of this magnitude probably shouldn't have been undertaken without discussion on the talk page, for this very reason. Let's please discuss. --Tenebrae (talk) 22:40, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

I was hoping to have heard from you, since you were editing at the time I posted the above. According to WP:COMMONNAME, we must title articles with the name by which something is commonly known. This company is best known as Atlas/Seaboard. I point to these three examples, both Web-based and from print journalism by an expert source (Comic Book Artist magazine) which turn up among the first Google hits:

An Unofficial Atlas/Seaboard Checklist

"Rise & Fall of Rovin's Empire" A candid conversation with Atlas/Seaboard editor Jeff Rovin Conducted by Jon B. Cooke Transcribed by Jon B. Knutson

  • In print: "Vengeance, Incorporated: A history of the short-lived comics publisher, Atlas/Seaboard"

by Jon B. Cooke Comic Book Artist #16

I would also say that a move of this magnitude should not have been taken unilaterally, with no discussion whatsoever. Atlas/Seaboard is unquestionably the common name by which this company is known. --Tenebrae (talk) 16:24, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
