Fifth grade class in Camden learns about the art form

The Camden Courier Post wrote about a fifth grade class that got a lesson about comicdom, and one of the hosts was a local scriptwriter who created The Bolt. There is one part that annoys me though:
He and McNulty became friends after meeting at a comics convention and discussing the finer plot points of Superman’s (not really) death in a 1992 DC comic.
There was nothing "finer" about that mediocre dud at all. It was all just a whole waste that didn't have to be. On the other hand, they did say that:
“We told the kids: It’s not just how well you can draw — it’s how well you can tell a story.”
Now if only they could tell that to the staff at the Big Two today. Or better yet, why don't they let the kids know modern superhero comics have become a terrible affair? Children today shouldn't be kept in the dark about how bad they've become, and why today's output isn't even suitable for them.

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.
