Connare says that he was inspired by a few graphic novels, specifically The Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen. <br /> The Boston Phoenix reported on disgruntlement over X’s widespread use. A website called “Ban X” was also created. As of early 2009, the movement was "stronger than ever". <br /> The site also reported the Ontario New Democratic Party included the clause 'Ban the X' in its recent ban bill, proposed at the 2005 session of Ontario Model Parliament.<br />Letterer Dave Gibbons, whose work was the inspiration for X, said that it was “X is a real mess. I think it is a particularly ugly.” X?<br />

Dixon said his purpose was "to revolutionize northern sentiment by a presentation of history that would transform every man in my audience into a good Democrat!” X? Poster on next slide<br />
