See No Evil, Print No Evil

Angus Nurse has published a scholarly article in The Comics Grid See No Evil, Print No Evil: The Criminalization of Free Speech in DMZ which examines contemporary notions of free speech and the criminalization of journalistic expression since 9/11. DMZ by Brian Wood is perhaps the most amazing, thought-provoking graphic novel I've read. It paints a bleak picture of a future America where the social and political polarization we currently face have been taken to an all-too-possible extreme. Read it, particularly if you think the medium has nothing of serious value to offer.
