Remember why you liked comics in the first place?
Our Comics Empower Project continues!
This time, Roxi tells her story:
A comic book is so much more than my escape door.
For me, it is an inspiration, a hobby…a blast!
What lights my day is that anybody can be a hero.
Just like a villain chooses to be bad, a hero chooses to be… something more than “usual”.
I love to read comic books because of their insane combination between kindness, sadness, jokes, evil genius, power, loss, lust… everything.
Real life or fantasy, even villains get bullied.
Physically or psychically, it doesn’t matter if you are good or bad, everyone has evil shadows lurking, laughing… hitting you until you touch the ground.
It is only in your power to rise again, to ignore that shadow or to fight it. The ability to change is what defines us. The connection that we bind with another person gives us hope. Hope that you can help the world to be a better place.
With or without superpowers, winning and losing… step by step we interact with our favorite characters, and every day we choose to be good or bad.
Hero or villain, we all just want to prove ourselves and in the end to be worthy of our choices.
