My First Comic

My very first comic ever was Asterix and the Great Crossing by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo. The early part of my life was spent in Saudi Arabia and I was exposed more to comics from Europe than from the U.S. This was the book that my parents read to me over and over again before going to bed.

Basically, I was an American kid growing up in a Muslim country looking at ridiculous Native American caricatures written and drawn by French men in a comic that featured no female characters whatsoever.

Very worldly.
