Girls

Almost all my comics contain autobiographical references, and this one is no different.

As a pre-teen, and teen, I gravitated to those books that dealt with (euw) feelings and family matters, than the rough and tumble boys’ adventures. I did love those too – Arthur C Clarke, Tom Swift books, Robert Cormier, Hardy Boys, The Great Brain series, et al. I really enjoyed the ‘girl’s’ fiction, it gave me a window into understanding them, although I am no closer now than I was then, LOL. Judy Blume’s books figured largely, especially Forever, and Then Again Maybe I Won’t.
