unless you are collecting charity OR make a political cartoon... is that better?
Not really. You're still generalizing. A lot of comics make a point without being political. They are still entertainment, but they are meant to make the reader think, sometimes about aspects of their own lives and culture.
It really ruins the show when suddenly they start talking about world events.
That's odd, I know of several comics which speak of nothing but real world events, yet are freaking hilarious. TV is the same way. How often do real world cultural and political issues pop up in shows like South Park and the Simpsons? The whole point of those series is for us to laugh at ourselves.
When I am in the right state of mind i go and i watch the news, when I am browsing comics i am looking for some laughes to cheer me up, not depress me (and I have never heard a single peice of world news that WASN'T depressing, if it was cheerful they wouldn't be broadcasting it as cheerful stuff = bad ratings)
You don't represent everyone in this case. There are quite a few people who prefer reading something that isn't funny, otherwise there wouldn't be so many comics out there that take a more dramatic approach. As for the news, good things do happen, and quite often they are reported on the news. It's just a matter of how they are presented. Of course for good to happen, bad must first precede it. You can't improve a situation unless there is something wrong with the situation to begin with..: isukun :.
