I love you, Guardian

Usually I think that art, like most poetry, is a bunch of pretentious twaddle. Now, I’m fairly pretentious myself, as I’m a student of literature, but I’m pretentious in a more down-to-earth, working-class way. It’s complicated.

Anyway, The Guardian’s art blog has this fantastic article giving superheroes the acclaim they deserve, by drawing a valid link between the likes of Batman and the heroes of ancienty mythology.

It’s not long, and if you’re into both pop culture and ‘proper culture’, it’s definitely worth a read.

  1. One need look no further than Shazam for a direct link between heroes and ancient mythology.

    Thank you, and good night.
