Since I talked about GPK, let's talk about comic books. I've been mad for comic books since the age of ten. The degree of escapism they afford is in the range medically necessary for me. Lest you think I read them recreationally.
There was a time I became too cool for comics, lost my head and followed girls around instead. From about age seventeen through my early thirties, a black hole exists in my comics life. But then I discovered the pure childhood joy again, of reading and collecting. I've always been a Marvel kid, so the emergence of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has also been rejuvenating.
