I asked him that if in the light of recent events, it was in questionable taste publishing a book that could be read by the husbands, wives and more importantly the children (it is a comic after all) of the victims of 9/11 and the Atocha station bombing? ... I finally asked him if, human being to human being, he didn't feel at least a twinge of morality or conscience? He said, everyone's entitled to their opinion.A member of the Bush administration? No, the person being discussed is an employee of CrossGen Comics, in an incident related by Ian Edginton. The book they're discussing is called American Power, the preview issue of which is CrossGen's contribution to this year's Free Comic Book Day, and whose cover features "a muscle-bound, gimp type hero punching out Osama Bin Laden." More here (four pages worth and a bit of the fifth).
Except the poor souls who died in 9/11 and at Atocha.
Update: Laura points to this Newsarama interview with Edginton as well.
