— H.G. Wells, The Time Machine
I just lived daily with my parents fighting against the bomb, the idea that this thing when it happens, we’d be obliterated, forever.
And then for me the big thing was discovering superhero comics, because suddenly, there were people who could stop the bomb.
Superman could take an atom bomb hit to the chest & just shake it off… so all that reflects on me: the moment you realize that the bomb, before it was a bomb, was an idea, and suddenly that understanding: Superman was a better idea, so why not make that one real instead of that one?"
Grant Morrison, comic book writer.
So I did this thingy too
I probably shouldn’t have used my full name haha
