Super Position by David Graeber

"Super Position" is scholarly examination (from a political viewpoint) of superhero comic books in general and of the three Christopher Nolan Batman films. The classic covers featuring Batman and/or Superman that pepper the article are at once wonderful and perplexing because they don't in any way directly relate to the words that surround them; an analogy that comes to my mind is listening to classical music while watching a news show with the television sound turned down.

The article by David Graeber is interesting though, and quite different from most articles about comics that you'll read. Have some fun with it over here. By the way, Mr. Graeber and Noam Chomsky are considered to be two of the top anarchists of the present day.)
