I also remember "funny books". There was a candy store around the corner of where I lived that sold "funny books". I remember haggling with my dad to give me 10 cents (remember 10cent comics?) to buy one. He would always say, "Why do you want another funny book?", but eventually he'd give me the 10 cents. That nostalgia makes me resistant to Kindle and all its ilk. There is nothing like the feel and smell of a "funny book", new or old. My first graphic novel was the first Superman annual which cost 50 cents, a small fortune at the time (1950's). My mother promised me the two quarters if I passed 4th grade. I did, ran home through the projects yelling "I passed, I passed." Those were the days!
It's nice to see that you have a dark side as well, although it comes through in some scenes of a Song of Ice and Fire
