YMMV: Black Summer
  • Internet Backdraft: Since Black Summer opens with Horus murdering the President, Vice President, and several of their advisors, the book initially drew heavy fire from conservative readers for being what they perceived as a left-wing revenge fantasy.
    • In fact, the President in the story is never identified by name, although Horus's speech in #0 makes it pretty blatant that he just killed George W. Bush. However, the story itself could be very easily rewritten to be about any administration, and the President's identity is only important in that it provides Horus with a motivation.
  • Refuge in Audacity: If you were not in the United States or at least paying rather close attention to U.S. culture and/or politics in 2007, it may be difficult for you to appreciate just how audacious Black Summer really is. If nothing else, it was designed from the ground up to anger the right-wing American news media.
