‘Something Terrible’ is a poignant look at child sexual abuse and the healing power of art

Every now and then I run into things—movies, books, short works, sometimes single images—that capture the essence of what I originally intended this site, Pop Mythology, to be about. And while the breadth of the site has by necessity expanded, the essential core, voice and message of it remain the same.

The following is an excerpt from a graphic novel by Dean Trippe called Something Terrible, a Kickstarter-funded project now available for digital download (for a ridiculously cheap 99 cents). While the story is situation-specific, its themes are universal.

And it is magnificent.
