To cleanse the palette from earlier nastiness, I decided to post an example of really really good comic art. So called sequential art, it tells the story in sequence, panel by panel, and in this case, you need no words to explain what's happeneing. I've taken this from War of the Superman #1 (reviewed here).
Now. wasn't beautifully done? Technically, the art is no masterpiece. But it gets across the emotions and story very well, irrelevant of whether you know the backstory.
See kids, comics can be good! And clever! And worthy!
