Deferring To The Readers, I'd Like To Direct Your Attention To The Following Comics-Related Statues
Last week's post about comics-related statues brought with it a number of responses from CR readers about their favorite comics-related statues. It seemed like a natural thing to highlight a few of those choices and the rhetoric employed by those suggesting them.
From Brad Mackay: "Loved the post about comics-related statues today. It brought to mind this one, of Jasper the Bear, a classic comics character by Canadian cartoonist James Simpkins. The statue has been in Jasper, Alberta for decades and has probably outlasted the character's popularity himself. I've never been there, but it's definitely an icon of the town and park; the kind of thing that you take a picture of your Mom hugging. He even has a Twitter feed! What other comics statue can say that?"
