“We Love Deadpool and Named Our Daughter Wayde.” – Schuyler’s Story

Remember why you liked comics in the first place?

Our Comics Empower Project continues!

This time, Schuyler tells his story:


I grew up loving comics, and as I got older I lost touch with them. Six or seven years ago my wife was given a Deadpool/Cable team up.

Was it empowering or inspiring? Nah, I wouldn’t really say that, but we both loved it. We fell in love with Deadpool. We named our daughter Wayde. Yeah, we added a ‘Y’.

Now, I am trying to learn to write comics and it has been a journey. I am often inspired, and empowered by comics, but now in a totally different way.
