FOR TRUTH, JUSTICE AND THE AMERICAN WAY

The greatest service which can be given to Will Eisner's legacy in his departure from us is the perpetuation of the spirit he breathed into the comic book industry.

The gifts which Will Eisner has given the comics are so insurmountable and well known that they need not be listed here and now. Suffice it to say that amongst his many great works, this giant of the comics defined the sharp sociopolitical statements made in the medium today and invented the graphic novel with which the comics present their message to the world.

With the passing of the revered and beloved late great elder of the comics, the reigns now naturally pass over to Neal Adams. Not the reigns of eldership in age alone, but the eldership of prominence, works and stature, all combined into one.


Likewise, Neal Adams has given us innumerable gifts
, such as embarking on the discovery of the scientific model under which the universe came into being, which is slowly and surely toppling Einsteinian science - the theories of relativity, the big bang, pangea, subduction and many other superstitious tales of magic and sorcery which the scientific world still adheres to today. A new model of the universe which will become the catalyst for the success of our next evolutionary phase as the generation which will conquer the final frontier, as we're destined to do.

Amongst his other great works, Neal Adams has also embarked on putting forth a model for a new sociopolitical leadership through the voice he has in the comics. Neal Adams has tackled social, political and economic issues on both the local and international fronts in America and the world through transcending bipartisan politics in seeking truth and justice which are free of the sociopolitical labels that only confuse and bewilder the American citizens today.


Neither the Republican nor the Democrat representatives are able to stand for such truth and justice because they can no longer represent the true ideals of their respective parties, which have long been buried under the manipulations and pressures of the money wielders who pull their strings. Sadly, such is the case for the political infrastructure today, not only in America but across the entire globe.

The corrupt spirit of love for the wealth and the power it wields is what's leading the world into the strife we're all in. Civilization has become a many headed beast, eating itself from the feet up by it's greed driven power lust economic heads, who manipulate the cowardly and superstitious lot of political heads into doing their bidding - all at the expense of the rest of humanity which is slowly falling into their slavery.

This is why Bill Clinton couldn't come through on his health reform promises which he based his campaigns on. This is also why George Bush can't really bring peace and prosperity to America because he's too busy doing the bidding of the money wielders in their attempt to conquer the Arab world and force them to fall in line with western consumerism which is leading us all like lambs to the slaughter. This is why the cost of living in America has increased astronomically since the 1970's while average income has only increased marginally, taking its toll on the middle class - as the wealthy few continue to become even wealthier.

If we are to truly believe in the fundamental ideals of either political ideology today and not only in the misrepresentation of our dual faced two party system, we'd send a strong rebuke to the present leadership and administrations which have blatantly abused the trust given them by their voters. If we were to truly address the values of freedom and the spontaneous success of all humanity at the root of the Republican and Democratic ideologies, we'd demand true justice for America and not blindly adhere to the false labels which both parties continue to deceive us with.

This is why America needs a new and courageous leadership uncorrupted by the power lust greed of its socioeconomic political system.


THIS IS WHY AMERICA NEEDS THE COMIC BOOK CREATOR'S PARTY
.


It's a big leap, I know. But at times like this in history, such a big leap is needed in order to turn the tides of destruction which civilization tends to unwantonly stray into.


What could be more right today than for the prolific, informed and opinionated comic book creators to come together to form a guild and a union which calls for a revival of truth, justice and the American way?

What could be more right than for the comic book creators to reach deep within themselves for the essential values which bind us all together, and thus evolve into a union of leaders such as they're destined to become? What could be more right than for the leaders of a new world to step forth, free of political deceptions, calling on Democrats and Republicans who truly care for America and the world - and for the essential ideals of their respective political foundations - to join us in forming America's first national unity government in the year 2008?

What could be more right for the likes of Steve Ditko, Frank Miller, Alan Moore, Trina Robbins, Neil Gaiman, Warren Ellis, Mark Millar, Denny O'Neill, Alan Weiss, Larry Hama, Howard Chaykin, Steven Grant, Kurt Busiek, Donna Bar, Dave Sim, Jim Starlin, John Byrne, Alex Ross, Rick Veitch, Mark Waid, Chuck Dixon, Rob Liefeld, Jim Lee, Peter David, Mark Evanier and Rich Johnston – all only a few amongst the wide array of the prolific giants of this industry, too many to list here now - than for all of them to reach for these truths within themselves and to step forth to help lead the coming union of the comic book creators?



Comic book creators are a humble and humane lot. They will rise to the occasion only when they hear the voice of the people call on them for leadership.


YOU THE READERS AND THE ENTIRETY OF COMICS FANDOM ARE THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE FOR THE COMIC BOOK CREATORS.


The call must come from the ground up
. From you. When fandom begins to sound this roar, we'll see how the creators will step forth. We'll begin to see a new and bountiful voice of the comic book creators who'll rise to the occasion.


WE'LL BEGIN TO SEE HOW FITTING AND WORTHY NEAL ADAMS IS OF LEADING AMERICA AS ITS NEXT PRESIDENT.



It's time for us all to begin to roam the internet forums
of the comics and to sound the roar for the gathering together of the comic book creators. It's time to plan on taking advantage of the tremendous publicity that such a union will reap at the comic book convention circuit, as much as several conventions held each and every weekend of every week of the year in the United States.

The time is at hand now to grab the hands of time and to usher in the destiny reaching out to us and crying for our intervention. The grace of God is with us to uplift the good spirit within comics fandom and to give courage to the cherished creators who adorn it.


May the roar be heard so as to revive the legacy of truth, justice and the American way.
