I think all forms of personal expression present meaningful ways for us to confront and process moments of trauma and tragedy. Most children of the early 1960s, for example, did not have access to counseling and were forced to internalize their grief. Some turned to music, art, and literature to tap into and release that sorrow. Tragedy and loss of any kind provide opportunities for contemplation and hopefully, renewal, whether one seeks meaning in a meaningless act of violence or to do justice to a horrific event by creating something beautiful in stark contrast.
The Kennedy assassination is viewed as this watershed moment, and so it has that symbolic significance attached to it, which lends itself very well as the backdrop to a comic book, to a science fiction television show, to a feature film, because it does provide that gateway into a distinct moment in time that instantly defines the culture of the era.
