It's a fine line between pulp and superhero, look at Incognito recently, or the Batman/Doc Savage one-shot and First Wave.
Cooke strayed too far one side of that line.
I'm really trying my best to hold back from insulting you right now man but it's rally hard.
Incognito is a superhero story! Brubaker said as much! Criminal is not. (Duh)
First Wave is supposed to be pulpy and not at all super hero like. That's the whole difference between first wave and the main DCU.
Cooke's run on The Spirit is the very definition of pulp! Batman is not because the only villains in the batman books that are close to pulpy are two face, scarface and possibly the scarecrow.
If your really trying to claim that Cooke's run was a cape book (which is what I'll refer to super hero books as in this argument now) you are the very definition of fucking crazy and obviously read something different then the rest of us.
