I thought I would talk about the wonders of the superhero comic. Not all of them are male power fantasies. In fact some of them are quite intelligent and are powerful comments on society. I mentioned Watchmen in my last post, but this is just one example. Writers like Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, J. Michal Straczynski, Brian Vaughan and others try to explore real world issues in the context of a world where superheroes exist.
Explore the world of superhero comics, visit a public library and browse, you never know what you might find.
