Will Comic Book Publishers Save the Planet?

Real life superheroes from the Activism Center at Wetlands-Preserve in New York City are using their powers to compel comic book publishers to examine the environmental impacts of their publishing choices. As the Comic Foundry reports in an excellent article on the topic, some comic book artists are bounding to action, like Maxeem Konrady who states, "The paper industry is one of the single most serious threats to our clean air, our habitat and our water because it's so stubbornly ingrained."

According to surveys done by the Wetlands-Preserve of dedicated comic books fans, a community with a keen sense of good and evil, a strong majority of them are cheering for eco-justice.
