Then (at 32:51 ) Paul is inspired by social movements and current trends to think about hard questions that artistic and literary texts can pose about the prospects of masculinities. His thoughts roam over "Why Art?" by Eleanor Davis, "Deathstroke" by Priest and artists (DC), "New Superman" by Gene Luen Yang and artists (DC), "Brazen" by Penelope Bagieu (First Second), "Slots" by Dan Panosian (Image), "Grass Kings" by Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins (Boom), "Atlas and Axis" by Pau (Titan), "Vinland Saga" by Makoto Yukimura (Kodansha), and "The Super Life of Ben Braver" by Marcus Emerson (Roaring Brook Press).
