“Adults foolishly demand to know how Superman can possibly fly, or how Batman can possibly run a multibillion-dollar business empire during the day and fight crime at night, when the answer is obvious even to the smallest child: because it's not real.”

Megabooks Very nice!! Sometimes both worlds aren‘t real, and that‘s okay with me. 😉😁🖖🏻 1mo
LiterRohde @Megabooks Interesting interpretation of the quote. I actually picked it because Bruce Wayne gets to be Batman and a billionaire. 1mo
Megabooks @LiterRohde I‘ve heard a lot of superhero fans love Batman because Bruce could rest on his laurels, but instead he fights crime with no actual superpowers. I agree that‘s a pretty badass way to spend your evenings! 1mo

Part history of DC and Marvel Comics, part autobiography, Supergods is a great read for fans of comic books in general and Grant Morrison in particular. And it's a steal at two dollars right now.

After a nice, albeit short, weekend, I'm breaking in my new mug and resuming work

Simona It's always a pleasure to see how enthusiastic you are about writing your thesis.👍 3y
DennisJacobRosenfeld @Simona I'm glad it shows. It's easy to be enthusiastic with such a fascinating field of study. 3y
abhisynthe Great read. What's your thesis on? 3y

DennisJacobRosenfeld @abhisynthe I agree. It's on the evolution of the American comic book as a medium. 3y
abhisynthe Cool😊 will you be covering planetary? Or stuff by image comics (nowhere men and east of west are some I unsolicitedly recommend). Strongly feel that the modern tropes cater to a deprecated good vs bad medium derived from ww2 that has been invalid for a long time now. 3y
DennisJacobRosenfeld @abhisynthe I probably won't be touching on Planetary, but I will include titles from the large publishers as well as indie companies. I agree with you that most of the large titles are struggling right now, and there's a need for change. But once in a while something truly great still comes along. 3y
abhisynthe Sounds good. All the best - and I might hit you up for a copy once it's done 😊 3y
