Compare and contrast. In the same month Disney-owned Marvel is going to be releasing Super Hero Squad Spectacular #1 with cute little Wolverine pictured above (and presumably right when Disney book publishing is rolling out cute ‘lil Wolvie books in children’s departments across the USA) you’ll also be able to pick up you very own copy of the lovely, museum quality masterpiece ironically entitled Wolverine: The Best There Is #1. It’s like having your cake and taking a bite out of a still-beating heart too.
I used to be a huge superhero comic book fan. Not anymore. Superhero comics are wall-to-wall gore and misogyny. By catering to a rapidly diminishing audience of emotionally stunted perverts and torture fiends, the two major comic book companies, Marvel and DC, have taken a once great storytelling genre and reduced it to puerile, immature, nihilistic titillation. If you find this blog and want to contribute or point me towards any particularly egregious examples of superhero suckiness, shoot an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
