UW Green Bay Lecture About Race in Superhero Media

It was strange that the talk was done through American Intercultural Center (if I’m not mistaken). Overall, it seems as though the audience wasn’t too sophisticated about comic book or mass media culture. They seemed uninterested or a little distant. That might be a genuine problem because it implies the audience members are truly marginalized and not consuming mainstream media. You can pick that up during the Q&A session where they ask questions about racial progress in the depictions in the media as if they didn’t have any control over it. It’s as simple as sitting down and drawing yourself into a superhero and publishing it, but it doesn’t seem they know that.

Anyway, as I’ve joked before, it looks like my run at UW-Green Bay via my Pen Tonic comic strip featuring Agent S as its first Asian superhero made an impact. And anyone who has those actual printed issues of The Fourth Estate are going to have somekind of keepsake increase in value.

Don’t worry, dear fans (not that many), Agent S will return.

Green Bay’s First Kid Superhero: Jackpot Bloom

By Chongchen Saelee

Wouldn’t you know it, Green Bay’s got it’s FIRST KID SUPERHERO: JACKPOT BLOOM!

Who is Jackpot Bloom? Why do all the other kids hate him? Why do all the adults want to exploit him? What makes him so special?

What if I told you there was a special school that trained young children with special gifts? The children’s powers are harnessed by adults who seek personal gain, but also to make decisions about running the government, society, and the world. After several decades of research, and many failed attempts in finding a breakthrough gifted apparatus child, along comes Jackpot Bloom.

He is a chipper, bright-eyed young man. At age 9, he is a master tennis player. He lives with his adoptive parents at their elegant tennis club/mansion estate that caters to the wealthy.
