You can tell I was pretty emotional when I drew “page 5,” because I made my bully look like a monster. I’m not sure whether or not I’ll approach it the same way in the new version.
That’s all bull, of course. These kinds of things happen and most people just don’t want to deal with it or don’t understand.
As it turned out I had more run-ins with this kind of abuse in college but at the time I was unable to come to terms with it.
I think a lot of the time even us victims have a hard time grasping the experience.
