Reliving my comic book love with Liev and PBS
I grew up loving comic books not as a artform but just as great escapist fun. My favorite was PowerPac about kids with kickass powers. Hmmm I was pretty
much an exclusive lover of comics with a similar theme of the powerless gaining powers. I think it was because I felt so invisible as a kid the plain black chunky girl who was super shy, had a horrible speech impediment and no boys ever asked me out. Well one did but he was so creepy and weird that I decided it was better to be alone. I mean super uber creepy ala asked me to the prom and told me I HAD to have sex with him. Ahhh no thank you!
