‘X-men’ artist inserts political references into comic, and people are not pleased

Image: screenshot/ marvel An Indonesian artist for Marvel snuck in several political and religious references into a recent X-Men Gold issue and people noticed. Ardian Syaf, who had previously worked on Batgirl and Superman/Batman titles for Marvel, had put in references to an ongoing political conflict in Indonesia. SEE ALSO: Muslim Indonesians tweet support for beleaguered Christian politician Ahok The references, which appeared in the first issue of X-Men Gold released last week, were quickly spotted by Indonesian readers. Many voiced their anger against Syaf. It’s shameful that a comic that’s about minority and inclusivity is being used to peddle intolerant identity politics by its artist. https://t.co/XbvIKLmeZe Bernadette Maria (@doggudoggu) April 8, 2017 Ardian Syaf basically reached the peak of his career: working for Marvel and he threw that away for the sake of a weak-ass pun Aldy (@aldidot) April 9, 2017 In one of the comic panels, the numbers “212” are seen above a building.

However, as all English majors know, grammar debates can get ugly. A recent cartoon by The New Yorker‘s Emily Flake perfectly captures how one of the most agonizing debates between grammar nerds might even manage to get in the way of a marriage.

You can tell from the woman’s face and crossed arms that she’s discussing a serious matter, yet the man is holding his hand out towards her, almost as if to prevent her from commenting further. So what’s this serious matter they’re chatting about? Welp, the caption simply reads: “I’m sorry, but refusing to use an Oxford comma isn’t really grounds for divorce.” We beg to differ.
