Because if we're going to try and stop the misuse of our favorite comics and their protagonists by the companies that write and publish them, we've got to see what both the printed and online comics news is doing wrong. This blog focuses on both the good and the bad, the newspaper media and the online websites. Unabashedly. Unapologetically. Scanning the media for what's being done right and what's being done wrong.
How Will Eisner encouraged army mechanics to read manuals
The Baltimore Sun has an article (and a short video clip) about a new exhibit for the works of famous cartoonist Will Eisner, detailing how he turned instruction manuals for military mechanics into comic book format (hosted by characters like Sgt. Half-Mast, Connie Rodd and Joe Dope), and thus encouraged soldiers during the WW2 era to read them and learn how to repair equipment.
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.
