"I don’t think the heroic ideal is necessarily passé, no. I mean, it’s not like this is the worst time in history, and it’s not like there aren’t people doing good things for one another. Yeah, there are a lot of shitty aspects to modern life, but at the same time, I don’t know that any other point in history realistically fares any better. You look at a show like Mad Men and sure, everyone dressed great, and that mid-century modern furniture in the offices looked amazing, but it was just as tumultuous a time as we’re going through now. Women were treated like shit, anyone who wasn’t white was treated like shit, children were treated like shit, we were in costly war with Vietnam. It’s easy to glamorous other periods in time and think they were better, but we’ve always struggled. Superheroes weren’t created at a point when everything was rosy and everybody was great: Superman, Bat Man, Captain America — they were a direct reaction to a world that was kind of going to shit."

"So many comics over the past several decades have dealt with the positive aspect of super powers, with people gaining or being born with amazing abilities and then deciding to use them for the greater good, but as fun as that stuff is, it’s a myth, a lie. People use their talents, whatever they may be, to get ahead in life." - Eric Stephenson

I picked up a graphic novel recently, not a new one as it turns out, but new to me, and it's gorgeous in a way that I don't normally warm to.
