Jack Daly // EU Referendum & Trump Beware

Jack Daly created two pieces inspired by the international political turmoil of the recent weeks; the actions of British politician Boris Johnson and U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump. Last week, Johnson was successful in his work to coax the UK into leaving the EU, and Daly crafts a piece playing on a famous image of Johnson being stuck to a zip-line; Daly displays Johnson as having fallen off of the zip-line, and consequently broken a star of the EU flag. Creating just as much chaos in world politics is Donald Trump, whom he compares to the devil in his second work. One cannot help but notice a clear comparison between the two figures in Daly's recent work.

Superheroes! Time to Save the World!
Mark Summers
"It's interesting - I think superheroes get much more unfair derision."
- Brian K. Vaughan
Jason Seiler
"As a kid, I wanted to be the person running from the monster. I also wanted to be the person saving people from the monster. I wanted to be a superhero."
- Ray Santiago
Maciej Frolow
"It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me."
- Batman
Guy Stauber
"When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree by the river of truth, and tell the whole world "No, you move.""
- Captain America
Daniel Goldfarb
"You have to always try to think about them like real people first, and not just heroes. They have to be real characters. As people do more and more superhero stuff, the characters are what distinguish it, just like in cop shows."
- Greg Berlanti
Niklas Asker
"What's cool about Spider-Man is that it's everybody - anyone, you put on the suit, anyone believes that you're Spider-Man. That's what's charming about the character. He's anyone."
- Jake Epstein
Doug Smith
"What does it mean to be a superhero? We're all fighting for the better good. But, at the same time, I think what stands out is, as superheroes, you don't give up; you don't surrender. I think that's what makes a superhero."
- Ellen Wong
Michal Dziekan
"As far as superhero stories, what's appealing is of course that aspect of wish fulfillment. I mean, you start out reading them as a kid, and a couple things jump out at you - there are heroes out there, and you wish you could run into a phone booth and change your life, or be like Peter Parker and put on a mask and become a hero."
- John Ridley
David Palumbo
"The measure of a superhero is always his nemesis."
- David Lyons
Tim Bower
"I've always loved the power of stories to transport me to another world, to imagine extraordinary possibilities, to experience things I may not have access to in my regular life - like being a superhero!"
- Kandyse McClure
Michal Lisowski
"I've learned that being a superhero isn't all glitz and glamour. We think if we have a special power, our problem will go away. It's just a new set of problems. Being a superhero alienates you and separates you from humanity."
- Josh Keaton
James Bennett
"I want to be able to fly like a superhero. I won't be happy until I can fly across oceans and cities, saving people from being murdered."
- Heather Graham
Oscar Ramos
"We grew out of the superhero comics, but we still liked comics, so we started putting our own experiences in the stories we were doing for our own amusement."
- Gilbert Hernandez
Ricardo Martinez
"If I had to choose a superhero to be, I would pick Superman. He's everything that I am not."
- Stephen Hawking
Sam Spratt
"When 'Iron Man' came out, I said, 'Oh - they are trying to have some fun.' It was a relief because every superhero movie had become so damn serious. Some people love that, but for me, it's a weird thing to watch. A man with a cape can have fun, but I won't listen to a lecture from him."
- Baltasar Kormakur
Goni Montes
"I would like to be in a superhero movie where I do martial arts."
- Dakota Goyo
Thomas Ehretsmann
"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before."
- Edgar Allan Poe
Dongyun Lee
"You can take away my suits. You can take away my home. But there's one thing you can't take away from me- I am Iron Man!"
