Remember why you liked comics in the first place?
Our Comics Empower Project continues!
This time, Alesana tells her story:
I don’t have parents, I have creators!
It all began when my mom was pregnant. She was expecting a baby girl, so she went and bought everything pink. My dad on the other hand was waiting for a baby boy so he went and bought all superhero stuff, especially Batman.
My mom was right and got her baby girl.
I was born with damaged lungs and grew up in the hospital. Occasionally I would be able to and visit my family and they did every thing they could to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I wasn’t home.
My Grandpa and Mom always bought me a lot of comics, and my mom would sometimes read them to me in bed.
I still remember those spooky nights at the hospital. My dad even made me the greatest gift; a Batman flashlight. I used to believe that Batman would come to save me.
I had a lot of hard times back then and comics always cheered me up.
When I meet new people they always tell me that I come from the imagination of Gerard Way, because I’m always creating stories and remind people of his characters. I live in my insane mind pretending to be the princess from the far, far away lands, waiting for the return of my grandpa and my friends.
Without comics I go crazy!!!!!!!
