    development, again, not instructional, which definitely was harder. As I began to nurture my passion for reading, I began devouring True Detective Magazines more than Sexology, which led to a further passion for crime and drama.

A full bore rush of adrenaline, a learning experience, an adventure to the unknown and of course there's nothing better than wearing war paint while talking with the team…

    Comics, graphic novels and manga can tie generations together, can start a trend or a give a group of friends a place just to hang out. And the store that houses them can make a difference. Going into a mainstream store as opposed to a smaller-in the hole-comics/graphic novel store is a bit different. For instance, you really have to dig deep within the comic locator or friends of friends to find these small-tucked in the corner of nowhere-places. The mainstream bookstore that I went to was…
