Last time I was here I was talking about nostalgia, which is a buzzword that seems to come up often when people talk about the comics industry, and we identified it perhaps not as nostalgia per se, but perhaps a "reversion" to stories that worked for various reasons (storytelling, characters, certains writers, etc.) plus readers' desire to discover a certain era that existed before their time. Everything about this reversion seems pretty good. Until you look at perhaps a darker side of it.
I'll steer you to Comics Alliance to read Chris Sims's article entitled "The Racial Politics of Regressive Storytelling." Then I'll come back tomorrow when I'm more lucid and talk more about what Chris Sims has to say.
Until then, I leave you to ponder a still shot of a deleted scene from Star Wars: The Rodent Menace:
It's all fun and games until Darth Cottontail shows up...
