The most unrealistic thing I’ve ever read in comics is when some group of characters calls themselves the Brotherhood of Evil or the Masters of Evil. I don’t believe any character believes their goals to be truly evil.

Sad to think that we won’t have any new stories from John Updike, one of the last century’s masters.

Updike’s genius in the short form spills out of these many, many pages.
