Batman versus the State
Libertarian comicbook writer Paul Pope is at it again.
Is the Dark Knight battling Nazis again? No, this time his target is Police State America!
According to the current Wired magazine,
The series is set in a high-anxiety future, where totalitarianism has nearly snuffed out the remnants of humanity. America in 2039 is a police state, individual liberties have been curtailed, and there's a dark sense of impending doom. Roving police squads, Blade Runner-esque floating vehicles, and robotic watchdogs scan the skyline... A distressed-looking Batman is the only person Big Brother fails to track, and the superhero's mask symbolizes the last hope against a corrupt government encroaching on individual privacy.
