Comics As Nostalgia

It was at some point whilst reading the incredibly punch Giant Days comic book that I started to well up with tears at the notion of a time long passed. A time, now forgotten, where I was a young girl in college. I had all of the traditional sexual hangups and jagged social learning curve that all young girls have during their time in one of our countries four-year university programs. Then I realized I am not, in fact, a girl. Oh, and then I realized this story does not take place in our country. Oh, and also, I went to college like ten years ago. Comic books can make you feel nostalgic for an experience you never had and the person you never were.
