I just discovered this autobiographical comic that handles sexual abuse. The author is a survivor that found some solace in comic books, much like I did, to deal with a horrible and abusive childhood.

This comic spoke to me on so many levels. The ghost hand constantly holding a gun to his head was particularly chilling, and a very familiar feeling.

Beautiful comic, thank you for bringing it here Todd!
When I've read it it was like I plunged into my memories, I've always dreamed of super heroes, and even tried to make comic about one as a kid.

Thank you SO much for this. Tears literally welled up in my eyes seeing the ghost hand. This is one of the most touching and ultimately uplifting things on this subject I have seen.
