The Power of Comics

Comic books! They can transport us to lands far away, mystic distant climes or thousands of years in the past...or future! They give us adventure beyond our imagination, startling stories of magic, wonder, power and mysticism! They awe and astonish us with their tales of suspense and their journeys into mystery! Larger-than-life characters stride these pages to give us a world and action beyond our very ken!

Or, um, y'know, it can just give us the same old stuff we have to deal with in our everyday regular normal mundane boring lives.
