Batman as Comedy

1,569 words

Other than with the campy television program from the 1960s, you’re probably not going to equate Batman very often with comedy.

Of course, there is ample room for dark humor in Batman stories. The Killing Joke by Alan Moore is great example. But this is not the same thing as comedy, in which the universe itself is funny. Read more …

“Only White Nationalism Will Make Wakanda Real”
Black Panther

1,404 words

I saw Black Panther with a friend in Seattle last week. Judging from the reverent silence in the theater — broken only occasionally by our laughter at unintentional bits of humor — it was an all-white audience. The serious tone of Black Panther is a departure from recent Marvel movies, which constantly undercut heroism with ironic humor. But Black Panther is a movie about numinous, magical Negroes, and some things are sacred. God is not mocked. (Unless he is Thor.)  Read more …

From Léon Degrelle to Tintin:
European Identity & Anti-Semitism in the Work of Hergé

3,140 words

Herge_with_bust_of_Tintin

Hergé with a bust of Tintin

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note:

The following are extracts from a speech given by the revisionist historian Olivier Mathieu on 26 October 1990 in Brussels to the Circle of Revisionist Students. Mathieu faced considerable professional and legal persecution for explicating Hergé’s Right-wing roots in an unapologetic fashion. After the Second World War, Hergé was forced to bowdlerize much of his work – stereotypical blacks, greedy hook-nosed Jews, Read more …

Responses to Holocaust Provocations

vampirella_20002,376 words

A few days ago I came across by chance a Holocaust tale in series of old comic books from the late 1990s.

That is not at all surprising. It is difficult to go through a day without encountering some Holocaust propaganda. If you have functioning eyes and ears, it would be close to impossible to go through a week without encountering any. Read more …

Outbursts of Everett True

Outbursts of Everett True
Introduction by Trevor Blake
Baltimore: Underworld Amusements, 2015

There are many things about Chicago of which I am not proud: our glum acceptance of the ten percent sales tax; liberal North Siders’ wheedling attempts to be “down” with the South Side (while avoiding that part of Chiraq out of pure self-preservation); or our continual reelection of machine politicians, Read more …

Helga’s Lampshade

AllManMagazine-1-400_zps596042c93,550 words

The year is 1943, and the matronly harridan Helga von Grimm has a problem. Lampshades made from human skin are “all the rage” in nazi-ruled Europe, and hers has a defect. The imbecile guards at the local concentration camp, where all prisoners are tattooed with swastikas, have mistakenly left tattoo marks on the tanned skin, despite Helga’s specific instructions that they be removed, and now her new lampshade is ruined.

A Different Kind of Holocaust Commemoration

6,326 words

x_men__magneto_by_andrewkwan-d52b77jIn the early 1980s a young German Jew arrived at the Auschwitz concentration camp. His name was Erik Magnus Lehnsherr (or perhaps Max Eisenhardt), and he would eventually become, after his escape from Auschwitz, the most powerful Holocaust survivor in history. As leader of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, as well as an occasional nazi-hunter for the Israeli government, this profoundly unusual Holocaust survivor dedicated himself to protecting those who, like himself, were both different and superior from the intolerance of all those who, like most of humanity, detested their difference and feared their superiority.  Read more …

The Last Superhero

watchmen83:37 / 100 words

Whatever happened to the American Dream? It came true. You’re looking at it. Greg Johnson and John Morgan join Richard Spencer to discuss the universe of Watchmen and what it reveals about modern America, the contractions of liberals, and the implicit “fascist” mentality that underlies Superhero myths.

Man of Steel

manofsteel1,128 words

I have never liked the character of Superman. He is not a man who has transcended humanity toward something higher. He is simply an alien, who looks like one of us, and who comes equipped with a whole array of superpowers. From a Nietzschean and Faustian standpoint, that translates to zero appeal. I am not interested in being rescued by a superior being. I am interested in becoming a superior being. Furthermore, none of the Superman movies or TV shows ever managed to make this character compelling to me  Read more …

Dredd:
The Order in the Chaos

2,809 words

Dredd is an action movie and nothing more. Fortunately, the creators know this and it is a good action movie, an outright celebration of blood, guts, slaughter, and gore — and a large amount of it is in slow motion. And in 3D.

While such films are rarely the subjects of critical acclaim, they do have political significance. Action movies make the egalitarian Left uncomfortable. Read more …

The Ponderous Weight of the Dark Knight

Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze in the Fourth Age of the last Batman cycle

2,792 words

Reviewers of the new Batman movie on various alt-Right sites have been reasonably led to ask why comic books — excuse me, “graphic novels” — have come to dominate Hollywood. Since both industries were founded by and are dominated by You Know Who, the answer seems easy — ethnic networking — why pay royalties to the goyim?

The Order in Action 
The Dark Knight Rises

MAJOR SPOILERS BELOW. DO NOT READ THIS BEFORE SEEING THE MOVIE.

The Dark Knight Rises is beyond Left and Right, beyond good and evil, beyond any frame of reference that this society can understand. Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy closes with a vision of weaponized Traditionalism certain to be misunderstood by movie reviewers and talking heads who think in terms of Republicans versus Democrats.

This review will examine the work of Robert E. Howard and, in particular, his greatest creation the barbarian Conan. For the purposes of concentration and illustration, I will look at the comic strip “Zukala’s Daughter,” scripted by Roy Thomas, and featuring in the 1972 Fleetway annual in Britain.

The Incredible Hulk

1,122 words

The Incredible Hulk is a Marvel comic which has been running for nigh on 50 years in a relatively unchanged format. In this review I will concentrate on liberal and illiberal or authoritarian and libertarian strands which co-exist within it. Most people are dimly aware (if only from Hollywood’s version) of Doctor Bruce Banner’s transformation into a green behemoth and fighting machine as a result of his exposure to gamma radiation from an atomic bomb test.  Read more …
