If you haven’t noticed, the number of movies with their origins in comic books has grown rapidly. In the last three decades, Hollywood has borrowed, adapted, or — in more recent years — wholly incorporated many of the best graphic novel stories and characters into full-length feature films. The medium has been so influential that one of the main comic book publishers, Marvel Comics, is now owned by The Walt Disney Company. As the number of comic book films have increased each year, the readership of comic books themselves has grown also. What was once seen as a juvenile boy’s hobby thirty years ago has become a billion-dollar industry with broad demographic appeal.
The comics of today are American versions of Greek mythology complete with origin, philosophy, psychology, and religion.

Ann Voskamp shares on the beauty—and difficultly—of waiting until marriage in this letter to her son.
Last week, a shooter attacked a classroom at a community college in southern Oregon. In the aftermath, the media recounted incidents of gun violence through the decades. We thought back to the mass killings at a church in Charleston, South Carolina; a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado; a Sikh temple in Wisconsin; and a military installation in Texas. Then, of course, we thought about the horrific school shootings in particular, massacres at Virginia Tech, Columbine High School, and Sandy Hook Elementary.
Some believe we’re becoming numb to these attacks as they continue to occur, but for others, it feels like the opposite: We seem to have more reason to be afraid of our world than ever. The news immediately triggered familiar fears for me, because I am a survivor of a school shooting.
