I grew up reading comic books. I was addicted to them. And I blame my grandmother for opening my world to this art form. Whenever she would come and visit, she would always buy us comic books of Superman, Batman, Archie, Doom Patrol, Spiderman, Captain America, the Human Torch, Casper, Spooky, Little Lulu, Sugar and Spice, etc. I would also watch cartoons — Super Six, Space Ghost, Iron Man, Hulk, Submariner, etc. I watched all the Disney cartoons. Was hypnotized by WB toons, Mighty Mouse, Betty Boop, Popeye the Sailorman.
