Re: Film - the comic book genre
Haven't seen American Splendor or Persepolis. History of Violence and Road to Perdition were seen without knowledge that they were inspired by graphic novels (aka comic books.) The result was befuddlement as to why they were so highly praised.
And the rest were entertaining enough. The one that achieved its aims best I think was Addams Family.
The people of this country need regime change here, not abroad.
