The over arching story against those that worked here in America for freedom (McCarthy and other anti-communists) was so blatant as to make the quality of writing meaningless. The acting was great, the animation was great, the writing was great, but all thrown out the window with its "I hate anyone who worked for anti-communism/American first movement" message.

Too bad, I was really looking forward to enjoying it.

This is why I don't worry if comic books uncritically support my political views or not; it'd keep me from enjoying technically and artistically accomplished material far too often.

A far-out liberal should still be able to enjoy the virtues of a Chuck Dixon guns-n-glory romp because Dixon knows whow to write those with economy and wit; an ultra-conservative should be able to enjoy Alan Moore's Swamp Thing because Moore is just that blasted talented a scripter and plotter.

I can't understand people who take in everything as if it were propaganda, and then make aesthetic and moral judgments based on whether it's propaganda for their side or against it. It seems like it'd make reading comics into an angry, unpleasant experience.
