cubby2112 Posted September 27, 2009 Share Posted September 27, 2009 If you're really looking for superhero deconstruction within a superhero universe, try to track down Marvelman/Miracleman (out-of-print, but Marvel thinks they purchased the rights. As soon as they get all the copyright claims cleared up, they'll immediately reprint). You hear a lot about DKR and Watchmen, but MM is what really broke things open. (Also, Animal Man is a hell of a read. Meta-everything.) For modern stuff being published as we speak, Ellis is finishing up his "superhero" trilogy (Black Summer, No Hero) with Supergod in a few months. And Waid is having fun being off the leash with Irredeemable. Kick Ass has been a fun deconstructsploitation, to completely make up a word. Thanks for the suggestions. I will have to check those out. I like the new word, BTW. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
