Politics in Comics?

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  With all of the political shutdown/re-opening stuff going on, was there any politics in comics?

     Yes and three of my favorites were, "The Senator's been Shot," from Brave and Bold #85 (the first appearance of Green arrow in his longer hair and beard) as well as "Prez" which was a short lived comic in the early 70s about a teen President.

     And lastly, who could forget "Super President," which was an interesting Saturday morning cartoon back in the mid 60s.   I think it was on channel three in the Cleveland, Ohio area shown at 9:30 am.

     Take care and adopt a (political, even if it's silly) comic book today!

Aquaman, a Must "Sea"

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  I went to see Aquaman over the holidays and found it to be pretty darn good.  Yes, there were two villains in the film, but Black Manta was little more than a set-up for #2.
     I will say that Patrick Wilson as Orm, Ocean Master, almost steals the show the way Loki did in Avengers some years back.  Not a perfect fim, mind you, but not as dark as Batman V Superman from a few years back.

     Boiling this down to a few words, I must say that Aquaman is one film that...holds water.

     Take care and adopt a comic (one with water in it) book today!
