Besides religion/philosophy and politics I really love comics, although I've noticed that a lot of them are essentially trashing the superheroes I grew up with, Batman's considered a mirror image of the Joker some sort of cross between Any Rand-Hitler dispensing summary justice and acting like a magnet for loons. I dont like this.
Although besides not liking this myself I wonder are the kids that are growing up today sophisticated enough to understand what's going on here? Are comics for adults or mature readers, as the euphenism goes, now anyway rather than kids? The pricing would seem to exclude a younger readership, unless kids have more money than I did growing up.
