Pirate Mike Celebrates Superheroes!

Here’s another one about the state of superhero comics. And, yes, Artist Artie is probably me in comic strip form. I had a gray t-shirt I used to really love and, like all great t-shirts and matching socks, it has disappeared somehow. And, of course, I get the “realistic” shot in. When someone tells me they like the “realism” of a comic book, I get what they mean, but I also have to state the obvious just for the record: it’s not realistic at all. It’s a story about someone flying around in colored tights shooting lasers at easily identified bad things. Nevertheless, I love the name Revenger Man and the idea that he gained his powers by accidentally eating a nuclear warhead. One of these days, I’ll draw out a few Revenger Man strips.
