Batman Says ‘Raise My Taxes’ as Occupy Movement Comes to Comics
The Occupy Wall Street movement has come to comics.
One of the first salvos is from Berlin-based artist Anjin Anhut, whose Occupy Gotham (above) illustrates Batman’s sympathy for people sick of being sold out to jet-setting market sharks.
“I liked Warren Buffett’s public demand to be taxed more,” Anhut told wired.com in an e-mail. “So I needed a popular super-rich guy, and that was either Tony Stark or Bruce Wayne. I went with Wayne, because he basically always makes the right decision and is prepared for everything. Rich people should ask themselves, ‘What would Batman do?’”
