Comics legend’s seal of approval

2000adSince I recently discovered that a video recording of my big Kubrick interview existed online, I’ve been googling my own name more frequently. And this morning, I was sort of stunned to find that Pat Mills, creator of legendary British comics publication 2000 AD, had blogged about Capitalist Superheroes. He talks about the book briefly in his latest blog post, stating that “it was good to see this book once again delineate how these costumed crusaders have a questionable and unwholesome role in society. They are so much more than a harmless power fantasy designed for our entertainment: in reality a disguise and an endorsement for much that is wrong on our planet.” He then proceeds to cite in full several passages from the book that he liked particularly. Many thanks to Pat for the nice words, which couldn’t have come from a more flattering source!
