I do have a good friend of mine to thank for this post.. Here's What I mean
Anyhoo...Let me begin with an obligatory apology: I am sorry that I haven't been able to make the time to write.
In my defense, I have been studying really hard...I mean 4 weeks of maths tuition (just started with them) filled up 4 registers and clocked avg. 6 hours of study a day. I mean this is some really fucked up shit..I mean crap like this makes normal people go insane.
Thank God The Passive Observer is not normal people. Anyway I seem to be going on a tangent to my initial stream of thoughts so let's get back on track. This week we bring to you a look into the Uncanny Racism Present in The Comic-Verse!! Oh yeah!
So I have been toying with this idea for a while and the impetus to write came a day or two after my visit to The New Delhi Comic Con.
FYI I bought some comics by some Indian writers..and all of them suffered from weak narratives and "a final-fantasy rip-off feel" Though the Robert Crumb interview was quite something.
Rambling again. Anyway this visit made me examine a lack of black/yellow superheroes in mainstream comic media. I mean there is John Stewart the Green lantern, Black Panther and Falcon- both Stan-lee's brain child.
And there is Luke Cage..or Kato from Green Hornet (sidekick though)
But seriously look at the starting line-up for either DC or Marvel and you will get what I mean.
Anyway, this is just a little thought I am gonna leave you with..
Till Then Ciao
