Video Blogging: Fantasy vs. Reality in Superhero Comics


I just got a new iPad. And it’s so easy to make video then upload it to YouTube. So I am experimenting with using video blogs to help out with my course on superhero comics, and just to think out loud on various aspects of the superhero.

The first episode touches on Superman, Kirby‘s New Gods, and what I see as a tension between fantasy and reality that is demonstrated by many writers of superhero comics.

I swear, I don’t make stupid faces through the entire thing. Only, apparently, when everyone is watching.
