Boulder Geek Out
On Tuesday, I had my favorite panel in the two years I've been attending the CWA: "Geek Culture: Sci-Fi, Superhero Movies and Comic Books." One attendee apparently liked what he saw.|
Readers of this blog may get a sense of my thoughts on the connection between superhero movies and the broader culture. However, this piece I wrote for National Review Online a few years back roughly summarizes yesterday's talk.
Recommended reading list: Gerard Jones' Men of Tomorrow: Geeks, Gangsters & the Birth of the Comic Book; Arie Kaplan's From Krakow To Krypton: Jews and Comic Books.
