Morgan Spurlock's Comicon documentary isn't objective
You'd think the rabble-rouser responsible for Super-Size Me and Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden? would be inclined to explore the more troubling aspects of the Con; it stands to reason that the same Spurlock who rallied against corporate control of American diets would cast a jaundiced eye toward an event that's been co-opted by the entertainment industry.Does this mean that Spurlock doesn't have the courage to be objective about any of the deeper problems facing comics today, nor how the Comicon itself is hardly about comics anymore? I guess so. It may be nice to make a valentine to pop culture and art, but honestly, that's still no excuse for failing to get to the bottom of why what was once a great place for the art form and medium might one day no longer be, and fans may no longer have something to enjoy.
(On a related note, how odd that Spurlock may have had a problem with "corporate control " of diets but probably doesn't have a problem with political control of the same. Could that flaw of his have anything to do with his inability to lead an objective view of the comics medium? Good question.)
