If it weren’t for comic books, I might have lived the mundane life of a college professor or some such. Or maybe not. But I do believe my start as an outlier was when I picked up my first comic book — it might have been a 1961 Turok, Son of Stone. Or maybe it was a Mystery In Space with the character Adam Strange. And then there was that Flash. Or maybe it was Showcase Comics featuring the red uniformed Flash — drawn by Carmine Infantino and maybe inked by Murphy Anderson.
