ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims Will Be on ‘The Daily Show’ Tonight (Seriously)
Tonight, something very special is going to happen for the ComicsAlliance family: an appearance on The Daily Show. Yes, you heard me correctly. Our very own Senior Writer (and Senior Batmanologist) Chris Sims will be appearing in a segment to address the controversy over the Muslim superhero Nightrunner.
You may remember the ComicsAlliance editorial where Andy Khouri highlighted the frothing rage of a conservative blogger who was incensed that Nightrunner, a Muslim hero, had been designated the Batman of France rather than an “actual Frenchman,” a phrase so idiotic that it virtually demands the use of highly emphatic air quotes, even when read silently. Tune in to Comedy Central tonight at 11 PM/10 PM Central for more, and then check back here tomorrow for a look behind the scenes with Chris Sims!
