Oh, it’s all here this month in Comics Monthly Monday!! 

We got yer Redneck Space Pirates vs. Asgardians — all in the name of poisoning children with sugar and fat!!

We got yer Comic Bag — involving two unrelated stories (one with a gun and one with the moral “don’t unbag a comic shop back issue without asking!”). 

We got yer John Byrne with The Uncanny X-Men 109 in which the evil and twisted Canadians ruin a tranquil mutant picnic.

What?  THAT AIN’T ENOUGH?!

Ok, wise guy, chew on some Swamp Thing here! We gots issue 21 — The Anatomy Lesson!!  Maybe you’ve heard of this story?  It was written by some guy named Alan Moore.

Lastly, JUST FOR LAUGHS, we’ll chop off three more issues of The Walking Dead for you to gnaw on.

Deconstructing Comics #234: Race Issues in Comics

Comics have come a long way since Milton Caniff could put a hideous Chinese stereotype in a family newspaper, or create a racist World War II guide to telling “Japs” from Chinese people — right? Well… but what about those papers today that only want one “black strip”Candorville or Curtis, but not both? The top ranks of Marvel & DC heroes are overwhelmingly white — and, thanks to “regressive storytelling” at DC, they’re becoming more so. Black heroes, Hispanic heroes, seldom have their own titles. And, oh by the way — how about some characters with roots in India? Please? Tim, Kumar, and Mulele discuss the past history of racism — intentional and not — in American comics, and the present-day reality of most comics’ racial non-diversity. Also: Why Canadian-citizen Kumar never cared about Alpha Flight!
