Our Comics Empower Project continues!
This time, Adrianne tells her story:
How Comics Changed Me
Comics for me have been such a steady presence in my life from such a young age.
I basically grew up on Archie, DC, and Marvel and everything in between.
Comics at an early age offered an escape into alternate worlds.
Early on I considered the characters I read about to be my friends.
As a shy girl, comics offered me and my imagination a place to hang out for hours and hours.
Probably no surprise that I began drawing comics at the age of 9 on up.
The base of who I am come down to the wholesomeness of Archie and the uniqueness of Jughead.
Standing up, being there for others stems from my readings of Superman. Balancing a creative life with an adventurous life comes from my readings of Spiderman.
Comic books are my core. Not sure who I would be without them.
As a comic creator/writer, the feelings I have for comics is the same. Now, I get to create characters and share them with the world on a much wider scale. I am able to meet and talk to other like minds about comics.
