You know it's gonna be a bad day just by looking at your bedsheets. Just as palm readers divine the secrets of fate from the wrinkles in your hand, the creases in your bedfabric tell you that your day is going to suck. You don't know how or why you know, but you just do.
If you take one step outside that door, the world, the ENTIRE. INFINITE. UNIVERSE. is going to bend backwards and roar at your insolence; the fact that you have the gall to live. And because of this, the world is going to do everything it can to make sure that this error is corrected. That you do NOT get through the day alive.
So what are you going to do? Stay in bed and let time erode the fabric that ties you to reality? Or are you going to kick the universe outta the way and scream like the human you are because dammit you are alive and you are NOT gonna die?!
Well, those are some pretty dramatic conclusions... but what I would like is to know what it is that keeps YOU (yes, you) living from day to day.
For me (and everyone else in my comic), it is the drive to make my dream a reality; to become a comic book artist. Not just any artist, but the best damn shonen manga artist in the west. That drive is what I call "astropower."
