SUPERHERO DEATH: THE COMEDIAN

It is sometimes discouraging whenever a superhero dies because some of them are true heroes. It also is good for the story because despite all of their powers and skills, superheroes are still mortal and can die. One of the superhero deaths that left a lasting impact on me was the death of Edward Blake aka The Comedian from Watchmen. The reason for this is because The Comedian was such a flawed character who lived a violent life and he died a violent death. His death also set the events in the Watchmen comic in motion. As I draw closer to finishing my fourth volume, I realize that there will be a lot of superhero deaths in the final battle and it is the hardest thing I ever had to write.
