There's a nostalgic article over on Salon from a guy talking about how much he loved Marvel comics -- 1n 1965.
Then he complains that new comics are too dark. (Actually, he says that he's 'heard' that the Watchmen is pretty dark...)
Really. What other medium would suffer such indignities?
I look forward to the next insightful article about movies from someone who hasn't been to a movie in 45 years; I'm sure he will object that nothing today is as good as the Doris Day and Rock Hudson comedies used to be. He's pretty sure. He hasn't actually been to a movie, but that's what he's heard.
Or someone who hasn't watched a television show in 45 years, and is dismayed that all the sitcoms aren't like "Leave it to Beaver" anymore.
You know -- true lovers and experts of the medium.
You know, even though he can't be bothered to actually be involved since 1965.
