Me neither, my dad read comics as a kid, and is not macho at all. Of course I'm younger than Johns and Hickman.
Yep. I moved back near my family a few years ago for the first time in decades, I could write a book on that. One thing I realized though is that our communication troubles in our earlier history weren't all my fault like I had imagined they must have been. The more I dug into my family's history and recent past before my adoption, the more I came to understand how the pain and trauma from those days that pre-date me entirely affected my life as a kid and much of my early adult life as well.
I'd say that's where the healing began, but...
