There is a delicate balance between interjecting a message subtly into a story and becoming overly preachy. In some ways, a compelling story has to contain substance and a level of depth to justify itself to readers. On the other hand, when an author has his characters shout from a podium about a hot button issue, it can become tiresome very quickly. Throughout this entire comic, Marksmen walked that line between tactful narrative and evangelization. The creative team behind this comic is enormous, so I can see why some ideas may come off stronger than others.

Today’s society is so dependent on fossil fuels, it is hard to imagine a world without them. We have been trying to develop alternative fuels for years, but the vast majority of the world still depends on oil to maintain their everyday lives. Apart from the environmental implications, alternative fuels are being sought out because one day, there may not be any more oil for us to burn up. When that day comes, how we will carry on? What will happen to American culture as we know it? This is the kind of stark future depicted in Image Comics Marksmen, written by David Baxter with art by Javier Aranda, Garry Leach, and Jessica Kholine.
