Here’s a Watchmen like question: Who is the real bad guy: people who mug old ladies or folks who kill a half million Iraqis? If you really wanted to stop crime, then who would you kill first? I think that’s the premise for this comic called “Black Summer”, which I heard about at Warren Ellis’ great site. More quotes from Warren:
For the record, and for the edification of the prying eyes of either Homeland Security and/or the secret service, I do not support the murder of the current president of the United States. However, I think there are people who may have come to the conclusion that our political system is broken and that all nonviolent avenues have been exhausted. So, I guess I’m saying I wouldn’t be surprised if someone took a shot at him. Then again, its only a comic book ha ha ha and ha.
