Sonia Sotomayor’s Family Worried Comics Would ‘Corrupt Her’

A recent Washington Post article reveals that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor was a serious comic book fan in her youth, and such an avid reader of comics like “Archie” and “Casper” that her family became concerned that they might “corrupt” her:

“The females were expected to achieve more,” said her younger brother, Juan Sotomayor. She loved comic books — Archie, Casper, Richie Rich — so much that, after her father died, her paternal grandmother and aunts once convened a family meeting with her mother. “They were concerned about the role of the comic books in my sister’s life,” recalled her brother, an allergist outside Syracuse, N.Y. “It was maybe corrupting her.”
