American Dream! Cool Britannia!

British media commentators are way too snobbish to even consider comics as anything other than bum-wipe for retarded kids and refuse to accept that the content of some comics may be demonstrably more intelligent and entertaining than the contents of their favourite dreary thirty-something crisis novel, play or motion picture.

The American pop mainstream is too fucking brain dead to be proud of one of its three best ever ideas and has instead spent fifty years trying to censor comic book content into oblivion instead of encouraging comics to get weirder, wilder and more relevant to our wild, weird times.
