Ever wonder what it’s like to be a superhero? Mark Edlitz certainly has. Edlitz’s new book, How To Be A Superhero, is full of original and repurposed interviews with dozens of actors who have played superheroes or villains. Though they only donned the cape or suit for just a short moment in time, these actors have a lot to say about what it feels like to possess superhuman abilities.
“My goal was to speak to the actors when they were not promoting a specific project so that they would be more open to actually revealing something about their experience,” Edlitz told The Huffington Post in a recent interview. His book, which has a foreword by Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet, can be pre-ordered from BearManor Media.

panel from crazy american anti-communist christian propaganda comic.
From ‘Marx, Lenin, Mao and Christ’, a title which accidentally hints to the anti-capitalist nature of Jesus Christ, the original revolutionary (as I’ve heard that evangelical monks used to say in the 60s). The comic was published in 1977, a year after Mao died, by Open Doors.
