How Big of Comic Book Fans are the South Park Creators?

35 Reads



Fractured But Whole, the new South Park game to (hopefully) be released on October 17 has me counting down the days to when I can watch a full walkthrough on Youtube.

Here's a look:


​The big takeaway here is that Matt Stone and Trey Parker are obviously Comic Book fans. Something that makes me very happy. To what degree is debatable. 

Look at the 3:07 mark, the Coon (Cartman) has in his own gift shop in his lair (very Cartman-like) one of the items for sale is a Coon poster that is a clear reference to The Dark Knight Returns. The Coon's voice and film-noir like monologues have been seen as references to Rorschach from Watchmen. 

The creators have the superhero troupes down pat. Evidenced by when the player's character, "New Kid" must pick what kind of hero to be. Each type is given notable examples. Further evidence is shown just by the boys' superhero personas themselves. While some seem to be combinations of famous heroes, and some seem to be original, some are flat out obvious. Timmy is Professor X, and Mysterion seems an awful like Batman.

While it's hard to gauge the exact extent of their fandom, they seem to be knowledgeable fans. Somewhere between Casual and Hardcore fans. They do describe themselves as fans in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

The satirical brilliance of South Park is on full display, poking fun at Superheroes and honoring them at the same time. Hopefully, this game has the power to not only entertain the comic fans that never left, but to bring back the people that may have abandoned heroes as a kid.

Bobby Chrisafis is an aspiring Comic Artist and Writer who idolizes Batman and has always cited Frank Miller as his favorite Writer and Artist since the first time he laid down The Dark Knight Returns and realized his calling. He was euphorically happy when he finally met his hero, Mr. Miller (see profile picture). Outside of comics, he is an avid fan of the New York Yankees and Oakland Raiders. He also loves Punk Rock and listening to it way too loud.
