Series THE AMERICAN? WAY
Who does not know Popeye, Mickey Mouse, Superman, Daisy Duck, Hulk, Fritz the Cat, Yosemite Sam – to name just some of the stars of the comic genre.

The comic genre is responding for a long time on the trends and diversifying needs of a changing society and deals with issues such as racism, poverty, drug addiction, war, etc.

In the series “THE AMERICAN? WAY” I question whether the real society is a replica or model for the comic genre?
Is the desire of the „Little Man“ to be a superhero in society now the model for the figure of the „Superman“, or do the attributes of „Superman“ wake the longing to be like he is?

The from the beginning of the USA developed „American Way of Life“, characterized by optimism, activity, individualism, love of freedom and the pursuit of wealth according to the motto „COST WHAT IT MAY!“ – Worthwhile?
