Remember why you liked comics in the first place?
Our Comics Empower Project continues!
This time, Benjamin tells his story:
I learned to read and gained most of my vocabulary from comics.
They were a particular help to me during my childhood due to the fact that I was an outsider as a result of my Autism and Aspergers.
Comics especially helped me when I spent time being properly diagnosed in a mental hospital at age 8.
Comics have helped me get acceptance as an adult and jobs writing and editing for companies like Sequart Organization.
My name is Benjamin Hall and my current story, like the comic community, is ongoing.
