"Comics and politics" or "Super-Heroes for McCain"…
In the days of World War 2, patriotism played a significant role in American comic books. That sounds great, doesn’t it? Comics should have something to say. Comics can and should have an impact on society. Today, a couple comic book creators are voicing their opinions about politics, specifically in regards to the current Presidential race. Alex Ross, as well as Erik Larsen, appear to support Senator Barack Obama. This isn’t too surprising since most artists tend to sit on the Liberal side of the fence. So, I thought I’d contribute my own (opposing) point of view.
I would like to point out that this is my own personnel opinion and it does not reflect those of P.I.C. TOONS Studios nor of the members of P.I.C. (most of whom I love dearly, but who would sooner light themselves on fire before ever voting for Senator John McCain.). :)
Update: Cartoonist Eric Merced
