As a child stationed overseas, I remember my mother standing in a long line to buy me comics, X-men Volume 1 #281 And X-men #1; the wrap-around Magneto cover. She did this because she knew her son loved comic books, and being stuck in school, would miss out otherwise. Comics were a small American comfort in strange lands, and she always supported my hobby till the end.
So, imagine my disappointment when Comics changes so much that I was forced to stop reading them because creators no longer respected heroism. It wasn’t until I discovered Diversity and Comics and other creators who shared in my disappointment in the loss of the medium that I realized I was not alone.
Fiasco of Adventures is super-hero novel that is a throwback to flawed heroes struggling to improve, while still balancing a life outside of the mask. Fiasco himself is an unapologetic homage to the great Geoff Johns/Ethan Van Sciver run on Green lantern, one of the last stories I followed before I quit comics. Eagle eye readers will notice the easter eggs I put in the book linked to that run because, well, I like comics.
