Comments: “Cassandra” This short story does get right to the point. Sometimes people are not paranoid enough. The two police officers are illustrated well their actions are drawn looking normal. The story does go one way and makes you think one thing when another thing is happening.
“The Debt” You story shows a woman who loves her grandmother. She loves her so much she will not let her go. You will feel pity for her and her grief.
“Different” One man listens to a broadcast about being different and how people hate people who are different. It is not made clear how he is different until the end and really it does not matter. There is nothing wrong with being different.
“Highs and Lows” One son is doing so well then a stressful situation occurs and he losses it all. He only had to do one thing and he did not. He lost everything he was working for in a second. You will feel for him and at the same time know that he deserves what he gets only those around him do not deserve it.
“Prayer” This story will bring a tear to your eye. A mother with nothing and who wants nothing for herself is shown that those who are with nothing often give the most. Miracles do happen.
“Monsters” This story is confusing. What is its plot? A boy can change from a human to a half dog creature. So what?
“Gravity” the young man follows his heart and his dream of helping people his way. Will that change and will he follow in his father’s footsteps? Maybe he can do both. He is already a hero and maybe he will become even more.
“Heat” Two twin brothers live in a not so good neighborhood. The one brother does end up helping the other one to improve his life but at what cost. The art is beautifully done showing off the talents of one of the brothers.
“The World” This is one touching story not about a super-hero but about a mother’s love for her daughter. Nothing can compare with a mother’s love.
“Embrace: This story is all about a father’s love for his son. A father here does everything for his special needs child. Yes, it is hard sometimes but worth it.
Some of these stories are so touching. All of them deal with grief in one form or another and they will touch you.
