You think comics and superhero films are just fights and, “Cartoon-y,” characters with nothing relevant to say? Click through and read. Comics and superhero films have always had something to say, and more of us are paying attention. Genre storytelling has the advantage of an automatic mask for whatever issues are being portrayed, “A spoonful of sugar,” as Mary Poppins would say. The primary colors and costumes depoliticize the political and make it personal for the reader. Make it impossible for the reader/viewer to, “Other,” characters and you can create a circumstance for the reader/viewer to feel empathy for characters they’ve been taught to despise in the real world.
Mesdames et messieurs, bienvenue au carnaval de l'aléatoire.
SEE THIS BUTTON HERE? If you value anything I've got to say, and would like to buy a girl a drink, or contribute to my tattoo fund:
Geek-girl, poet, political miscreant, liberal activist, Goddess of Eclectica, spoken-word performer.
I love movies, music, books, and Doctor Who. I mean - I REALLY LOVE DOCTOR WHO.
Things you are likely to find here: Rants, poetry, pretty pretty pictures, DOCTOR WHO, SHERLOCK, reviews, opinions that you may or may not agree with, thinky thoughts on the constitution and pretty much anything else that strikes my fancy.
