Why'd you call Frank Miller a fascist just because he wants to do an Osama-bashing Batman comic?

From the storylines in comics like Give Me Liberty and Dark Knight Returns I've come to the conclusion that Miller is anti-establishment and leaning away from propaganda. If he does this comic, it's probably gonna be very tongue in cheek. Camp. And you'll be the first to buy (or download) it.

Besides he's going after Osama (in a fictional story) not the people of Middle East or Muslims in general. And since when are you sensitive about political correctness?

Now excuse me...I'm going to...paint a picture...of my image of Vixen sitting on a bed, slightly embarrassed at losing a bet, wearing only a skirt and a bra, unhooking a strap so that the cup falls off, exposing a big, bare breast.

Aww, baby, you flatter me so...

As for your comments about Frank Miller, I will have to leave the bulk of that discussion to you and T Mafia. But, let me say this: Political correctness is NOT a high priority of PCX....

On the camp vs. propaganda issue, I'll throw it over to Frank "RoboCop 2" Miller himself:

"It is, not to put too fine a point on it, a piece of propaganda...a reminder to people who seem to have forgotten who we're up against."

Hmm...

For a response, let's hear from Grant "All Star Superman" Morrison. Grant?

"I'd rather Batman embodied the best that secular humanism has to offer - a sour-faced, sexually-repressed, humorless, uptight, angry, and all-round grim 'n' gritty Batman would be more likely to join the Taliban surely?"

Truer words were never spoken, Mr. Morrison. I believe you also had a suggestion to make?

"I'd be so much more impressed if Frank Miller gave up all this graphic novel nonsense, joined the Army and, with a howl of undying hate, rushed headlong onto the front lines with the young soldiers who are actually risking life and limb 'vs' Al Qaeda."

Bonus link! "Why Frank Miller is a Fascist Writer" -

Miller's one of these guys (Christopher Hitchens, Dennis Miller, Phil Hendrie...) driven insane by 9/11 who've completely lost whatever sense (and talent) they may have once had, and have become...well, whatever they are now.

Frank Miller = Al Capp 2.0

Ooh, one more (the Miller segment is 30:17 into the page's embedded sound file) bit, in which Miller reveals that he (apparently) lives in an alternate reality where Iraq declared war on the US.

And as proof of my insensitivity to "political correctness" (after all, I take great pride in my insensitivity), note that I do agree with Miller's stance in the above interview that all cultures are clearly not equal in value.

Mind you, I oppose the whole idea of "cultures" in the first place, but what Harlan Ellison correctly calls "the monkeymass" will always need to be told how/what/who to think/do/be.

But, yeah; with Frank, as with John Byrne, I find myself having to separate The Man from The Work, 'cause I'm not gonna lie - if Miller comes out with a prequel All Star story with L'il Brucie growing up in the Batcave complete with a punchy title like, say, Bruce Wayne, Eater of Rats!, I'm there.

Such a well crafted argument would belie to the masses taht you are a raving lunatic.

Well, played. Inarguably poetic in it's over the top (yet, inadvertent) expose on how totally "comicced out" one must be to maintain the mantel of "Trenchcoat Mafia: Supreme Being of PodCastX".

PS.
Thoom,
don't forget to publish the pictures of Vixen's sexy biggie titties.

(for comparison to those (size not yet disclosed) of Kid Mission, of course.)

PCX: The Classics Tour.

If you cut off a person's ear they can still hear as long as you don't damage or carve out the eardrum, stuff just sounds strange.

The series is suppose to end with a six issue story called Dark Knight: Boy Wonder.

Again, Why haven't you done Kingdom of the Blind?
