Comics on TV
I suppose movies were enough of a hint to tell that comics are taking over the world just as their doom is being foretold, but not only do we have The Walking Dead as a TV show, and a show about comic geeks following it this Sunday, shows that have nothing to do with comics are including comics. Last night's Person of Interest (Wolf and Cub) on CBS featured a comic shop owner villain. Dude, played by Malik Yoba, was running a numbers and protection racket in a poor neighborhood. Either our script writer(s) have never been to a comic shop or they're engaging in fantasy fullfillment with this character.
