Pretty thrilled to have two big books in comic book shops today:

STORM #3

Long ago, after she was worshipped as a goddess on the plains of Africa, Storm was stripped of her mutant powers and fell into deep depression. A brilliant inventor named Forge came to her rescue and nursed her back to health, showing her that she is so much more than her superhuman abilities. And a romance blossomed between them. But it was a love made to be broken…

Now, years later, Storm has the powers and stature of a goddess once more, and she is reunited with Forge. But what does fate have in store for the pair this time?

Apparently some time in the 1980s I went to a book signing in Dallas and took a picture of Kurt Vonnegut.

World War Hulk #5, November 14, 2007

Writer: Greg Pak 

Penciller: John Romita 

It may seem silly to find solace or understanding in a comic book based primarily on superheroes fighting each other. But stories featuring either of these two specific characters have always helped me sort through issues of anger, control, self doubt and self-hatred, loneliness and regret.

Studies have shown that we’re more receptive to ideologies and messaging that are communicated through entertainment, seamlessly interwoven into the narrative because we’re not forced to confront a strange idea but instead to integrate it into our understanding of a text we’re enjoying.

(This is one of the reasons representation is important in fiction.)

This moment came at the right time for me, in 2007.

I was very happy to get to thank Greg Pak for it at Special Edition this year.
