Something Terrible

This comic book has tremendous impact because it is simply drawn and utilizes pauses expertly.

This work is meant for adults as it deals with the after effects of sexual abuse on a child.

That child, who is based on the creator, Dean Trippe, suffers into adulthood as a result of that abuse.

It also shows how the world of comic books (mostly "Batman") really helped him cope. There is one page that shows just about every superhero you can think of in full color.

The afterword also goes a long way to explaining where the story comes from.

This comic book has to be read at least twice to truly have an effect on the reader.
