Warren Ellis "starts masked hero revolution". Yawn

So Warren Ellis is putting out his first creator-owned material with Avatar Press called "Black Summer". Sorry to say, but I have very little respect for this would-be writer whose standings towards the US are so negative, and when spotting this little line here about the premise, that's what tells me this may be quite dreadful indeed:
Series protagonist John Horus was a retired member of the once government-endorsed team of superheros called the Seven Guns, but when the political situation in the USA becomes more than he can stand, he moves to take matters into his own hands. Since all his other team-mates aren't so eager to throw the world into chaos, an epic conflict starts to form. And no one will be safe as the bodies start to fall.
And I'm sure this book will be more than I can stand either. I've got no interest in hearing Ellis drone on and on about how he doesn't like US government policy. And if even independent comics start becoming full of all this political nonsense, they too will end up in just as bad a state as the major comics are now.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
