Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Even the most fervent Republicans admit they were impressed by the speech Michelle Obama delivered last week at the Democratic National Convention, so it should come as little surprise that she drew some admirers not only across the aisle but across the border. Canadian artist J. Bone was so wowed by the address that he envisioned the First Lady as DC Comics’ most prominent superheroine.
“I’m not a very political person. Really,” he wrote on his blog. “Unless I hear speeches that are incredibly ignorant (the current Mayor of Toronto is not exactly my favourite person) or especially rousing! Michelle Obama’s recent opening speech at the Democratic Convention was one of those exciting moments to which I actually paid attention. Politics aside I like the Obamas. Watching her speech I imagined Michelle as the NEW Wonder Woman!”
Hey, if President Obama can be depicted as a superhero, then why can’t Mrs. Obama?
