Remember why you liked comics in the first place?
Our Comics Empower Project continues!
This time, Miriam tells her story:
Well, when I was a child I didn’t read so much. I didn’t know how great and interesting the comics world – and the books ‘galaxy’ – can be.
The first person who talked to me about these things was my mother, a magical reader.
I remember that morning perfectly… She took me to the living room and made me sit on the sofa. I was very worried, because I thought that she wanted to tell me off about something.
But when my mother looked into my eyes and her hand stood in my legs, for some reason, I knew the importance and the honesty of what she was going to say.
She started to introduce me all the wonderful things that the reading could provide and explained me the sensation you feel when you’re lost in a book’s story.
When she finally finished, I was very excited and my decision was clear: I WANT TO FEEL THE LIFE OF A COMIC!
So, the first thing I did was go to a shelves and take the X-Factor comic. My mother had a lot of comics all around the house, but, I don’t know why, my mind told me I had to take it. Maybe the diversity and shine of colors were the elements that guided my choice, or the features of the characters, anyway, it has been the start of something good.
Now, this love of reading is making me meet some fabulous people, and, for sure, awesome characters and stories.
With this little text I want to communicate an idea:
“TO READ ISN’T ONLY TO SEE LETTERS ON PAPER, IS NOT ENOUGH. READ MEANS TO EXPERIENCE IT, UNDERSTAND IT, AND ABOVE ALL, LIVE IT.”
