From the introduction:
Love, rage, sorrow, justice, and revenge: these are the core concepts behind the world of James O’Barr’s The Crow. In his classic tale of murder and divine retribution, the author created a mythology that touched the minds and hearts of millions of people, and has become an integral part of western mythology, as well as a veritable staple of the Goth subculture wherever one goes. And there was a great deal present that would appeal to the Goths out there. The world of The Crow is dark, foreboding, sinister, and filled with high peaks, cathedral-like buildings, industrial dance clubs, fetish bars, and urban decay. And yet, underneath it all is the central, basic theme that life is worth living and love is worth feeling. While many people see Goths as “tragically hip” and ultimately depressing people, beneath the black clothes and pale makeup is a core of passion and rebellion of a sort that doesn’t come from people who are truly depressed. Goths are dismayed with the state of the world as they see it, but on the whole they love life and want to savor every last minute. The Crow is a symbol of dealing with tragedy and the darker side of life, and moving on to becoming someone better, to living a better life in a better world.
