This is the next three-part series about the top 100 things that made me cry last year. So here goes.
So much has happened in the past three years, and so little has lasted.
Here are some of the big things that people have said to me over the past 48 hours.
I have been a big fan of the comic books. I have a lot of books, and I love it when I get to read them.
This one is probably the most poignant. After taking a big, long break from comics in the wake of the Black Death, I decided to take a serious look at comics again. It turned out to be a bit more difficult than I expected, and in some ways I got to see the writing of comics that I thought were dead.
It’s good news that comics are still around in the 21st century, but it’s bad news that the art is not. The comics I read as a kid were always gorgeous. I couldn’t read very well because my eyes weren’t good enough to read the stories. I don’t remember anyone ever telling me comics were bad.

I mean, yes, if you were just reading comics and you have no idea what you are doing, then no, I dont think it is good. But when you are a teenager, reading a comic you don’t understand is just as bad. I remember reading the latest issue of Superman: Red Son and thinking its not going to kill me, but I found out its not that good either.
If you’re reading that you are a young adult, then you should be familiar with the term “penned”. This is the time in a comic where you see a story develop for a long time before it reaches its conclusion. Often a series of issues are published during this time period where the story is built up to a point (or at least, if not, a “penned” or beginning) to reach its conclusion.
This is a bit more complicated than it might sound. The first issue of Superman Red Son is a story that just picks up right where it left off. I guess it’s just a lazy way to be like “Hey, we should have that story back out again, because we sure didn’t waste it!” I’m not saying that is the best time to start a series, but I’m also not saying that was the best time to end it.
