The Devolution of Politics in Comics

August 29, 2018 Jordan 0

If you’re a long time comics fan, then there is absolutely no doubt that you’ve had at least one or two(hundred) conversations about the state of political discourse within the pages of the books we love to read. Those on the extreme left(who tend to be the ones writing a good portion of mainstream Marvel and DC books nowadays) are shoving their insane politics down the throats of their readers and the fans of those same politics tend to try and shout down anyone who disagrees with either the politics themselves or how they are portrayed in the medium, often […]

August 15, 2018 Jordan 0

It’s safe to say that I never really enjoyed Superman as a character or hero. The unfortunate truth of the matter is that the character is one that doesn’t really work well in the current era of comics. Superman is the peak of “golden age” heroes – a knight in shining armor, full of virtue and lacking any weakness, to save the day when things look grim.

Crowdfunding Comics: Blood, Skulls & Chrome

August 14, 2018 Jordan 0

DISCLOSURE: While we are not being given monetary compensation for our coverage of this kickstarter, I, Jordan, have personally put down my own money towards the project and was given a look at the currently in-progress comic to read for this coverage.

Today, we’ve got a pitch for a currently on-going kickstarter campaign that we all thought might be right up your alley. Recently, we here at Graded 0.5 […]
