Matt Fraction appears to have politicized the raid on bin Laden's hideout

Matt Fraction put together a webcomic for Gentleman's Quarterly about Team 6's raid on Osama bin Laden's hideout. Unfotunately, Fraction's leftist side seems to have gotten the better of him, if the description of bin Laden as an "old man" is any suggestion, and the writing runs the gauntlet of depicting the terrorist monster as near-sympathetic. And the use of "for God and Country" at the end reeks of a leftist bias too, or an attempt to smear the right as "jingoists" and religious fanatics.

Clearly, Fraction is one leftist writer who simply does not know how to leave his political biases at the door, and recognize that the main point of the termination of bin Laden was to punish a tyrant for plotting and masterminding the murder of 3,000 people on 9-11.

Fraction is yet another reason why I haven't bought any new Marvel Comics in recent years. Like bendis before him, an overrated hack indie writer... I read like three issues of his X-Men run and stopped, it was so awful.


Stay classy, Fraction. And Merry Christmas, anyway.

Fraction is one-tenth of a good writer.

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.
