Still funny to me that they are turning the boys into a successful tv show considering the amount of ghoulish sexual violence and gore that happens in that comic.

Agreed. Garth loves to coat his interesting moral themes in too many layers of exploitation gore porn to make it unforgettable, but by the 4th rape and scat epic the details of the depravity are very rote.

I'm the year of our Lord 2007ish Garth Ennis put out a comic where he flatly says that the military functions by chewing up poor people, mostly minorities, and that part of why people are poor is so there will always be people willing to die to enrich the people at the top

He also put out one about a man loving am asteroid to death

He’s the James Joyce of mass market comix

The Joker discourse clamming up immediately was actually one of the few acts of self control I've ever seen in the media blogger class. People do really treat superhero movies like secular religion now though, like something that you should "stay in your lane" because of all the support-system fandom communities around it.

they stopped talking about joker because they fear class analysis

You're probably right there.

I do kinda feel like people get really bent out of shape now whenever the media discourse doesn't come to decisive culture war climax. Like the discourse hype that builds up around things becomes more "exciting" when you imagine it angering the chuds. There was a recent Kotaku article where the author could not enjoy the "sociopathic" goose game without imagining she was tormenting Brexiters.

Chilean protesters donning Joker make-up, while simultaneously not getting paid any attention to in the media, at least to me, says that people did get the correct message out of that movie.

And that it wasn't the message that all the pearl-clutching shitlibs thought it was going to be.

Lebanon too, and I like the new makeup a lot better on dudes throwing rocks.

How these movies inoculate you against supporting ideas like this is show them as sympathetic but also an impossible dream that will get marginalized people killed because of how unserious it is.
