The Vast DC Conspiracy

We started working on this strip last Friday, and, well, you can imagine how real world events have put a strange twist on this comic.

The shouting about Superman renouncing his U.S. citizenship last week has been overshadowed by Osama’s death, and rightfully so. Talking about whether or not this makes Superman a liberal or a Communist or whatever seems pretty fucking silly compared to something like this. Remember what it was like to have real problems?

Things have come so far from then that we’ve started to worry about shit we’ve made up. Like we’re so bored we needed to believe that Batman training a Muslim guy was a thing to actually waste our time worrying about.

So, I just wanna thank Hawkman for being our strawman, our mouthpiece, for all the crazy out there. He may some insane shit, but it’s not as insane as any internet commenter. God bless you guys.

This America, man.

    Abortion arrows – aren’t those called boxing glove arrows? Maybe that’s why he retired them…

    ‘Fraid you’re behind the curve on Mr. Terrific. He’s been romantically involved with the white Sasha Bordeaux for several years now.

    I need Hawkman to be played by Charlton Heston. Then I need to hear him say “Oh… My… God.” You guys have helped me decide this.

    i recently posted a comic about comiccon con artist rob granito having to hideout in osama bin laden’s secret hideout cave becuase he has been so vilified in the comics community but of course nobody has read it because i am an under appreciated genius.

    …and yet, Vaneta Rogers over at Newsarama actually wrote a story trying to act as though the death of bin Laden had somehow imbued the fake Action #900 controversy with some kind of validity. Ugh.

    Mmm Abortion arrows. How about Punisher going to work for Blackwater/Monsento to enforce farmer seed contracts?

    I think the fact Mr. Terrific is dating a 16 year old is more disconcerting.

    Abortion arrows don’t already exist in the DC Universe? Huh. What about Marvel?

    You guys are awesome. Who knew three months ago that we were going to have to listen to the same idiotic argument about Ultimate Spiderman, too?
