ZIzek vs Christmas!

This is easily the most obscure comic I have ever made and that's saying something. So I am deeply sorry. I wasn't going to post it, but then it is holiday related so I figured what the hell. It is for a presentation I am doing on Slavoj Zizek's Tarrying with the Negative. Zizek uses It's a Wonderful Life to explain what it's like to reflect on the self. The argument is that in self reflection your view of yourself is that of an object. In reflecting on yourself you cease to exsist as a subject. In a way you cease to exists. Just like George Bailey here.

I like it. I hope the presentation went well.

Anyone who can negotiate a paradox without simultaneously sounding like they're opening a loophole to escape the handle of hypocrisy is simply Zizek..I mean Brilliant! :) Love the Comic. Best, Gregg Bray
