An Autobiography in Books

My mom taught me to read when I was four years old. I only know this because she at some point told me that is when I learned to read. I fell in love with reading in the 6th grade when Ms. Paolini required her English class to read Jonathon Livingston Seagull. That is the first book I remember having read, and from there, I never stopped reading. In 7th grade, I read The Hobbit. It took me the entirety of 7th grade to read it, and I eventually started to skip the parts where dwarves and elves sa...

Dw. Dunphy On…Comic Retribution — A Man Called Super Cool

It’s no secret — at least not anymore — that the comic book industry was not a glamorous lifestyle in its earliest years. Writers and artists were piecemeal employees paid to get the job done, not to be “creators.” This was a double-edged sword. For those who loved the comics medium, having that job was the dream of a lifetime, but it also meant that you as a creative individual had to dial back how much effort you gave, or else you’d come up with something enduring and far-reaching and have no ...
