About this site

Comic Book Justice is where I share my thoughts on the idea of justice as it is presented in the world of comic books (a.k.a. graphic novels, sequential art, manga, etc.) and how it works, or doesn’t work, in the world of comic book readers. It addresses topics including:

Of course, I may also occasionally post observations about comics that aren’t related to issues of justice and vice-versa, as well as thoughts unrelated to either—although I have a talent for relating most topics back to one or both of these subjects.

My goal is to convince people that justice isn’t just something that should exist in comic books and that comics is a uniquely American art form as well-suited as any other to address serious social concerns (and tell great stories).

Thanks for visiting.

    I love this picture of you AND your unabashed enthusiasm for such an underappreciated medium. It’s obvious you’re writing about something you love. 🙂

  2. Thanks Jolene, I’m glad it shows (and I’d much rather be unabashed than bashed :-)).

    As I said above my goal is to spread that enthusiasm for the medium to people who think of it as inherently juvenile and or second rate literature/art (despite the Pulitzer Prize, American Book Awards, Hugo Awards, Nebula Awards, World Fantasy Awards and other honors the best examples of graphic storytelling and journalism have earned over the past 20 years or so).

    And more importantly, I want people who do appreciate comics, especially highly moral superhero stories, to start commiting acts of justice instead of just reading about them.
