Stetson Kennedy

Ask Chris #221: Superman Versus The Clan Of The Fiery Cross
Q: What's your favorite example of a comic having an effect on the real world? -- @jamesdeleech A: You know, a lot of the questions I get for this column, at least the ones I tend to like answering, are the ones that are open to interpretation, and it's fun to pick and choose stories to talk about that back up a particular idea that I have about how something works. This one, though, is one of those questions that's about as close to having one definitive answer as is possible. When you talk about those great times when comics changed the real world, there's really only one choice. It's when Stetson Kennedy teamed up with Superman to bring down the Ku Klux Klan.
