Through them, young children growing up under successive brutal military regimes could, in ways practically unknown to their long-suffering parents, escape from their daily lives into universes where, not only was the world protected by colourful, costumed and fantastic heroes from fabulous and varied adversaries, but they, or rather we, could catch glimpses of a world as we were assured it was, hundreds of kilometers away, and as we could dream ours would one day be. The power of comic books comes from a unique combination of their visual nature, with their accessibility. Of the vividness of their images with the room left for the imagination of their readers to pick up the baton and take flight. And through this, their incredible ability to create, within the mind of those who read them, a strong ability to change the world around them through sheer force of will.
