Happy New Year!
In the last 10 years, comics have become more literary. They’ve explored deeper aspects of the human condition, similar to the great novels.
It’s been a wonderful progression for the form, but its made super hero comics easy to dismiss as frivolous.
Sure, super hero books can be shallow fist fight melees. But they can also be meaningful.
Alex Ross and Mark Waid demonstrate this well as Wonder Woman calls out a graybeard Superman for being a scared, shiftless, ….you get the idea.
