Once a depiction veers toward realism, each new detail releases a torrent of questions that exposes the absurdity at the heart of the genre.

The more ‘realistic’ superheroes become, the less believable they are. It’s a deleicate balance but this much I know: superheroes are real when they’re drawn in ink.
