Recent Comics & Current Events I usually don’t like it when comic books become overtly political.  I realize that’s not a universal opinion.  Paul O’Brien of “X-Axis” and “House to Astonish” has chastised X-Men comics for not reflecting current events quickly enough.  But, for me, comics are often my escape.  I keep up with political events and deal with plenty of real-world issues in my job.  I don’t need them in comics.  Plus, little things like story and character are often sacrificed…See More

I agree the comments have been bombastic at times, I just hope that others don't paint me with the same brush for engaging in the conversation. Certainly, though I bought comics during the silver age, I don't have any great insight into the people or personalities of the time. Still, I find his condemnation interesting as there may be some grain of truth in it.  But I'll never know cause I wasn't around.  And it's water under the bridge, after all...
