A refreshing series of comics panels

For all that we criticize the leftward political tilt of modern comics, we have to recognize those who "buck the trend," so to speak. So, kudos to writer Joe Kelly who had Superman perform this "push-back" to the hardcore leftist superteam The Authority in Action Comics #775.

Also included in the above linked CBR compilation of "patriotic" instances in comics is this great Captain America moment from Frank Miller's phenomenal "Born Again" run.

Yeah, that Joe Kelly story is pretty good. It's "What's so Funny about Truth, Justice and the American Way?" and was specifically intended by Kelly to be a criticism of the Authority and those kinds of "heroes." In fact, it was recently made into an animated DTV movie called "Superman vs. the Elite."
