Our New Gods Are Comic Book Heroes ~ Aeon Byte Gnostic M.C. November 10th 2012

Aeon Byte Gnostic M.C. November 10th 2012
More than ever, comic books influence and inspire Western Culture. Yet few know that many of its heroes and messages are heavily influenced by the occult, especially today with the runic touch of such openly magician-artists as Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Jack Kirby, Neil Gaiman and many more. Comic books reboot old mythological heroes and arcane saviors in order to find meaning in a vast universe, solve both timeless and modern problems. We take a journey from the esoteric genesis of comic books, its mystic evolution, to our times where its heretical message is more influential than ever because of movies and video games. Could the antidote to so many of our spiritual and material toxins be right in front of us, dressed in spandex? Or does this medium hold a more nefarious agenda, as fundamentalists contend? We also mine for Gnostic themes in comic books.
