A girl gives her opinions here, too; it isn't just all males.The subject of "good" vs. "evil" also is discussed.Later in the feature, today's comic ebook artists talk about their work. It's a sad statement that these guys, boys like Frank Miller ("Sin City") have a such a bleak outlook toward superheros and paint them with such "feet of clay." Today's comic "heroes" are anything but nice role models, as is acknowledged here, and that's frightening because this what young children today are reading. They don't receive any feel for "good," just "evil," because nobody is pictured in a positive light in today's action comics.It's a far cry from the days of "Superman" and "Batman." I was glad to see a several folks mission that out because Miller, to me, comes across here just like his characters: a dark person with a twisted, very cynical outlook on life.
This 19-minute documentary covers a nice deal of interesting and illuminating ground on the history and evolution of comic books. Among the subject discussed are how folks trust in superheroes because they wish to be greater than they are, superheroes are place on this world to war evil, comics are primary morality plays on nice vs evil, Superman is the storyline of an immigrant, many writers of the early comics grew up in the slums, comics have a magic realism that offers a funhouse reflection of reality, and how comics got darker in the 1980's by having flawed and/or corrupt heroes with feet of clay. Will Eisner points out that male readers receive into comics as a means of getting in touch with their manhood, Alex Ross notes that the superhero category is a mishmash of all kinds of fiction, and Frank Miller describes himself as an outlaw for strives for emotional reality in his work. Worth a watch for comic ebook fans.
