    The Depiction Of Myth In Comics

    From Mt. Olympus to the Daevas the subjects of myths and the focuses of spirituality have appeared in comics over the past few decades and now there are a wide variety of mythical beings throughout our comics. An article on this topic would talk about how myths and mythical beings have appeared in comic books and possibly even speculate about how they’ll be depicted in the future.

    • Is there any way you could make this topic slightly more specific? There are so many different types of mythology and spirituality, and it would be easier for the writer of this topic if you chose one specific type of mythology (say Greek mythology) and maybe even put out a couple of examples. I'm a big fan of this topic, I just think it could be specified a little bit more. – LilyaRider 5 years ago
    • I think a more specific way of approaching this might be to examine what are the prevalent preferred mythologies at the moment? All the classic mythologies tend to be cycled through popular culture at different times and in different places depending on the particular socio-cultural subtext currently in vogue. A very broad example of this is the rise of the undead in their various forms, a not unusual form of original mythos, plus the rise of the superhero and their deeds is reminiscent of Jason's trials. However, you could narrow down into particular aspects, for instance the increasing presence of transformational mythologies, or the reoccurring themes of the "great beneath beings" - the titans - that has been popping up. I do really like the idea of then having a discussion about what will come next. – SaraiMW 5 years ago
    • I recommend looking at Brian Azzarello's Wonder Woman New 52 Run. You could write this whole article about because there was so much greek mythology in it. – Sean Gadus 5 years ago

    This was a well researched and thorough analysis of something that has bothered many analyzers of popular culture for decades and you did it in a relatively small amount of space. Good job! I look forward to reading other pieces by you in the future.

    Miscegenation On Screen, Why So Disparate?

    As someone who genuinely enjoyed the prequels even as an adult I appreciate the thoroughness of this exploration of them and how much of an impact they had on the first of the new films. What an excellent piece!

    Star Wars: How The Prequel Trilogy Enhances The Force Awakens

    I love this article but I feel the need to point out that both Tokyo Ghoul and Attack On Titan have mangas that are still ongoing. Another series that would probably be neat to explore and analyze with questions and insights like this is Dolly Kill Kill (which is also ongoing but is apparently nearing its conclusion) or Akame Ga Kill (which finished earlier this year).
