Real life can sometimes be too mundane and ordinary; too emotionally safe and predictble. So it’s a joy when you can escape to a created reality and be moved to experience emotions outside the peripheral of everyday life. Tears shed for something that isn’t real but feels real. That’s how I felt while reading Ivory Madison’s Huntress Year One #1. Not to take anything away from the writer, but Cliff Richards rendering of the assassination of young Helena’s family was so magnificent and dramatic that written words weren’t neccessary and felt slightly intrusive. That’s the power of art. That’s the power of the imagination. And that’s the power of letting go of the real world if only for 22 pages.
I was in an adventurous and brave mood and decided to tell that Huntress story through video instead of posting scans.
