The best way I can describe how comic books fit into my life, is a relationship. My emotions are constantly changing in regards to them, we get in fights that will leave me seething, and there are moments where they make me squeal like a little girl. I’ve invested the better portion of my life into comic books. Ever since my brother handed me a silver age issue of Wonder Woman and told me to flip through the back few pages. I fell in love with this impossibly strong, but human, woman. This beautiful black-haired archer who I still look up to today. She taught me how to fight through the pain and that even if I made major missteps, I could still be strong. Then there was the fact that she had this larger-than-life father who even when we was gone, was always behind her, watching over her as her shadow. For a girl who didn’t have a good father figure to look up to, that was huge.
I’ve started Project: Legacy as a way for everyone to share their love for comic books. In this community especially, I’ve seen an overwhelming amount of negativity in the past year or two, and I want to spread even a little bit of positivity through the community. We all have vastly different stories to tell. Be it, how you discovered comics, to the different characters that inspire you. I want to hear from you. I want you to spread your love. Above was just part of mine. Now it’s your turn.
