In the beginning…

As with so many things in my life, my father was there in the beginning. Actually, it was my fathers books. Pulp novels, adventure stories. I discovered the Dave Dawson series, war adventure stories written by R. Sidney Bowen. I was hooked next I found Tarzan and Lone Ranger books.

Soon these pulp novels gave way to comics: Legion of Super Heroes, Strange Adventures, Doom Patrol and more. I loved the stories, the art, the escape into another world.

The comics lead to science fiction: books, shows, movies, even video games. Stepping through the looking-glass not only let me dream of strange alien worlds but often allowed me to understand our world even better than before.
