DC = DemocRat Comics

DC Comics has decided that they are an unpaid propaganda maker for the DemocRat Party of the United States.

Comic book icon Lois Lane is making a return in a new 12-issue series from DC comics.
In the series, "Enemy of the People," the character reprises her role as a hard charging reporter for the Daily Planet, her newspaper in the DC universe.
This time around, Lane is covering the White House, where she gets into a combative exchange with a White House press secretary, is ejected from the briefing room and has her press pass revoked.

Revoked because she's working on what?

In the first issue, Lane is in the other DC universe, the District of Columbia, grilling a fictional White House press secretary on whether her administration is monetizing the separation of children from their families at the U.S. border.

The comic then goes on to Russia. Inevitably. Here's what the author has to say about comic book fans:

"I've seen criticism saying, 'I don't read comics to see what's going on in the real world.' Too bad. It's called art. And it has to reflect what's happening around us," Rucka says. "I don't think you can tell an honest story about Lois if you're not reflecting the state of journalism and also hostility to journalism in the world today. The danger in telling truth to power and the fear that power has of truth being told, is in and of itself, a worthy story."

"Too bad. Its called art." Well no, Mr. Rucka. It is actually called propaganda. A perversion of art used to promote a political agenda. You don't get to make a naked propaganda comic and then fob off your critics with the "art" excuse.

Its too bad I already boycott comics 100%, I'd like to be able to boycott them even harder.

Overheard at a book review discussion of the New D.C. Superman novel

One: So the character, Clark something

Two: Kent

One: It's all about small town life, and his relationship with his parents in this town... umm..

Two: Smallville.

One: Yeah. [Laughs] I don't really know anything about comics. But then the town is going to pass this law, and it is *clearly* really all about racism and migrant rights. Because Suprman is an immigrant. I just love this book.

Two: I agree! It's so important to have these issues in stories. But I hated it. I used to work in a comic book shop. I love D.C., but all this line is just [rude word]. Just badly written. They don't get the characters or the world.

#Two is a true believing SJW.

The writing is hideous. It breaks the characters. DC is cruising straight for bankruptcy with this course they're on.

Is this for real? So much bizarre stuff goes on in comics now, I can't tell.

Ahhhh.....Rucka. A one-word explanation that pretty much covers everything.

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
