When Things Get Crazy, We Go Back To Science Fiction & Its Siblings

In this current political environment, long during the campaign, so many news correspondents, journalists, political analysts and others in the media continue to hearken to science fiction/fantasy/horror, genre media including comic books that actually predicted these events.
The Twilight Zone, which became popular in syndication, is being referenced more often. Rod Serling! We need you!

Next is references to Alan Moore's controversial but now classic comic "Watchmen". Moore is no longer writing comics and has moved on to other genres, but, the comic that turned the superhero as infallible demigod on its head is now more relevant than ever.
Oh, and Alan Moore is featured in the latest issue of World Literature Today

More blog posts on this subject. It's gonna be a bumpy ride, folks.
