War of the Chalk GolemsWar of the Chalk Golems
Nicolas rode his bike to the playground behind the school and saw Edward making the preparations, though for what he had no idea. He locked his bike onto the school's bike rack and made his way over to Edward.
"Look, let's just forget about this. It's a Saturday. We can go to the mall for a bit if you want, though not for long. I've got to cut my grass." Nicolas was lying, but even cutting the grass was fascinating compared to being with Edward.
"No, you really do have to see this," Edward said.
"See what? I was told there was a wager of five bucks, but I don't even know what we're betting on."
Edward smiled and made a sweeping motion with his hand across the schoolyard pavement.

Themes of Chomsky as Seen in Comic Books
The storylines in the graphic novels "JSA: Black Reign," and "JLA: The Nail" contain many parallels to Chomsky's teachings in "Media Control."

When the Justice Society of America gets wind of Black Adam's actions, they go on a field trip to Kandaq to take down Adam and their former teammates. "JLA: The Nail" takes read
To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been

So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
