Despite the cat-killing properties of that compulsion, it is what drives me. Linear thought bores me; paved paths are too crowded. Even the outsider preoccupation of comic book history is shoulder-to-shoulder with most students of it heading in the same direction. I've never been comfortable with that. There is far more comic history to know about than I could ever hope to learn in a lifetime. But I'm not afraid to ask questions, or to break some icons, or to head down roads that may end in a cul-de-sac.
"Sapere aude" -- Dare to know.
And that is what this is all about.
