There are a surprising number of folks out there who still believe that comics are just for kids. The medium and the industry yes, they are two separate things have grown in sophistication and craft over the past years as publishers strive to keep up with a base audience that craves more mature content that they can relate to. Some say this has contributed to the decline in sales the industry has witnessed over the same time period. Others argue that more complex stories and characters have allowed comics to grow into the art form they are considered today. No matter which side you come down on in this debate, the fact is there are loads of comics available for the discerning reader that deeply resonate with adult sensibilities.

Superheroes have always represented the heroic ideal, paragons of honor and virtue who put their incredible talents to use defending the weak and innocent, rather than cashing in for their own benefit. Maybe that's why it's so shocking whenever we see superheroes who are total pervs. Initially aimed solely at school-age children, comic books were later devoured by GI's deployed across the world during WWII. Crime, horror, and sex began to infiltrate comic books, and bondage was actually a common theme in many early Wonder Woman adventures. Comics became so saturated with adult themes, the Comics Code Authority CCA was established in to protect children from depictions of crime, gore, and sex , requiring mainstream superheroes to be squeaky clean for the next 30 years or so. In the late '80s, Marvel and DC decided they no longer needed to adhere to the CCA, and began pushing the boundaries of acceptable content, bringing graphic depictions of violence and superhero sex back to the medium. Today, pretty much anything goes.
The Pop Mythologist July 29, Comics. Having grown up reading superhero comics, I still love the genre as a matter of principle and always will. That sense of rapt immersion that came so easily as a younger fan is now elusive, at least when it comes to superhero titles. Yet at the same time, I still get excited at the idea of reading superhero comics and often find myself wanting to lose myself between the pages of a good one. But the same thing inevitably happens when I try to read one from the Big Two: I get bored, annoyed by the same conventions being used, or just overwhelmed by all the years of missed storylines.
