"I want to be an engineer."
"What advice would you give other engineers?"
"If you build a house that collapses, you’re going to get arrested. So you need to keep using the pendulum to make sure that everything is straight. Also, your cement mix has to be strong. You also need to be careful with the builders that you hire, or they will steal the cement from you.”
"What sort of building would you build?"
"A factory that makes new books, so that everyone can have new books for school. All of my books are old and have writing in them."
I love this kid. And look at his elf ears! He is just the coolest.
And please, I don’t mean because it sucked. :)
I mean have you ever teared up because of a story or scene, or character, anything like that, from a comic book?
The very first issue of Peter David’s Supergirl gets me every damned time. It’s brilliant. I still miss that version of the character.
