Sequart Digs Into Super-Hero Justice With Humans And Paragons

by James Ferguson

Super-heroes and what they stand for are ingrained in the pop culture zeitgeist. Everyone knows that someone like Superman represents truth, justice, and the American way, but does he really represent the best we can be? Sequart Organization is taking a look at this with Humans and Paragons: Essays on Super-Hero Justice.

The book, edited by Ian Boucher, digs into how these stories about justice help society understand the endeavor of protecting citizens and making itself better. At a time when the American criminal justice system is under intense public scrutiny and re-evaluation, we could really use a hero, but is the four-color kind what we need?
Contributors from around the world explore these questions and more from a variety of perspectives. Each encourages a more conscious discussion about the most fundamental elements of super-heroes. The collection will also include interviews with Mark Waid and Gerard Jones.
Humans and Paragons clocks in at 272 pages. It features a cover by Mara MacMahon and Roni Setiawan. It’s now available in print and on Kindle. More information can be found at the official page for it on Sequart’s site.
