Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá, and Fábio Moon’s Casanova is a stylish adventure about a sexy, amoral, universe-hopping, time-traveling, science-fiction spy caught in a war between the militaristic E.M.P.I.R.E. and the decadent and villainous W.A.S.T.E., led by a be-suited and bandaged cackling madman in sunglasses.
The Future of Comics, The Future of Men argues that beneath its pop surface, Casanova is doing more. It challenges the corporate-driven comic book production model, in which Disney and Time-Warner own all the major super-heroes. And it critiques the vision of masculinity, limited and damaging, that informs so much of modern super-hero comics and movies.
