To quote the Dauphin in Henry V, “Self-love, my liege, is not so vile a sin as self-neglecting.” While acknowledging pride as a sin, France’s ambitious prince feels it to be the lesser of two evils. This is all well and good for Shakespeare, but what are we to do?
Explore pride in comics, of course. Seven Deadlies continues in this issue of Hey Kids, Comics! that Andrew “I’m the King of the World!” Farmer and Cole “I’m the King of the Universe, So There!” Houston could not be more smug about presenting. Who are the most vain and prideful characters in comics? What role has pride played in the successes and failures of such characters? We shamelessly display a total lack of humility in staking our pride on this being the best possible examination of those and other related topics.
