Description of Pictures: Panel: The Aftermath: Battle & Trauma In Comics
As part of the DC in D.C. event, this panel session is a thoughtful discussion about the lasting effects of battlefield trauma. DC’s Batman author and former CIA counter-terrorism operations officer Tom King takes on Jack Kirby’s Mister Miracle in a new monthly comic book which focuses on a Super Hero who grapples with post-traumatic stress disorder, an issue not often seen in comics and tragically overlooked in the real world. King is joined by comic book writer/artists and other creatives and professionals.
Participants (seated left to right):
* J.W. Cortes (Gotham recurring guest star, a 13-year Marine combat veteran and a police officer with the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority)
* Dr. Vivek Murthy (former Surgeon General of the United States)
* Tom King (DC comic book author and former CIA counter-terrorism operations officer, Batman, Mister Miracle)
* Mitch Gerads (artist, Batman, Mister Miracle)
* Jason Inman (Professional nerd)
Moderator: Melissa Bryant, Director, Political & Intergovernmental Affairs, Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA)

I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
Featured Folk: Some of the people here can also be seen on other pages on this site.
