Buying No More Superman Comics
Well, you might not have know this but I have been buying comics even nowadays, basically the DC-Superman lines.
Action Comics #900 is the last comic book I plan on buying for a while. Because Superman renouncing his US citizenship is something I don't like. That is, I don't like the editorial policy reflected here. That's the "Blame America First" policy, if you didn't know.
Superman, as a comics/cultural character, will always be American, in the best sense. It's a shame that his creators seem to be focusing on America's failures and not using Superman as a tool to point them out, while believing that we can be better if we only LIVE UP to our ideals, like fair play and personal responsibility.
