What better way to show your support for the San Francisco circumcision-ban ballot measure than by picking up a copy of "Foreskin Man No. 2," in which the suspiciously Aryan "intactivist" superhero battles "Monster Mohel"?

"Nothing excites Monster Mohel more," the Foreskin Man trading cards helpfully inform us, "than cutting into the penile flesh of an eight-day-old infant boy." He sure does seem excited, doesn't he? He also seems a little bit, uh, how you say, racist? Whoa there, P.C. police! The San Francisco Chronicle's Debra Saunders asked creator Matthew Hess if the comic was anti-Semitic, to which Hess replied, "A lot of people have said that, but we're not trying to be anti-Semitic. We're trying to be pro-human rights."

So there you have it. There's nothing anti-Semitic about "Foreskin Man"! It's just a delightful, family-friendly comic book about a guy who... I guess he owns, like, a circumcision museum? And he has these magic... boots? And, uh, there's this gang of, I think, hippie bikers? "The Intactivist Underground"? Who steal stuff from hospitals? It's kind of a trip.
