‘Torture Report’ comics’ autopsy report comics have received a grade of ‘D’ for creativity
Posted On June 18, 2021
A controversial comic has been awarded a grade for creativity after receiving a grade from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
In a report on comic book characters and their creators, the OCR found that the “Tortured Comix” comic, by Mike Mignola, did not meet the standards for creativity that the agency says comic books are meant to be judged on.
“The Tortured Comics report, written by Dr. Maryann Fink and reviewed by OCR, found that TorturedComix is not a comic that is a ‘work of fiction.’
Rather, it is a graphic novel, with characters that are based on real life individuals,” the report said.
The report noted that the creators of the comic had been able to craft it with the help of “a limited number of people, including a number of licensed creators.”
Mignola was the first to publish the comic, which he titled “Tyranny of the Mutant Mutant,” in 2008.
The story focuses on a mutant who escapes from an asylum after the government has turned its back on him.
It is published by Dark Horse Comics.
Fink wrote that the comic is a work of fiction and that she has “no objection to it being published in a graphic magazine.”
She also said that she had read the book and said that it was “not a bad comic,” adding that she felt the comic was meant to reflect real life events and “not to depict fictional characters.”
“I did not feel the comic depicted the characters accurately or accurately portrayed the situations that they would encounter, nor did I feel that the portrayal of real life characters was realistic,” Fink wrote.
She also said the comic contained “grossly exaggerated depictions of torture, death, and violence, including some depictions of a woman being tortured to death.
These depictions were not consistent with the comic’s title, ‘Tyrant of the Mutants.'””
I found that this comic did not convey the sense of horror, uncertainty, and horror that is central to the torturous narrative,” FINK wrote.
The comic’s graphic novel is available on Amazon.com, where it has an average rating of 6.7 out of 10.
The rating is lower than the average rating for comics by authors like Jim Zub and John Updike, who are also rated “C” and “D.”
The OCR is not the only agency to judge comics.
Earlier this year, a judge ruled that DC Comics must pay $1 million in damages to a woman who said she was forced to perform oral sex on Superman.
The ORC has also issued a series of recommendations for comic book creators and writers, including an evaluation of how they should portray their characters.
It also said it has “found no credible evidence that torturous depictions of rape or other forms of sexual violence were intended in any way in the art.”
