Just because I wanted to, a few pages from one of my favorite bittersweet stories ever. This one gets me choked up no matter how many times I read it.







Michael Tenicek is being plagued by dreams of a woman that he knows everything about, yet has never seen in person. As the dreams take over more of his thoughts, he loses focus on work or dating, and wonders if he's going mad after he's chased down every lead from his past he can think of and has come up with nothing.

Debating possibly overdosing on his sleep medication, he is visited by The Hanged Man, who reveals to him an attempt by the Timekeeper to take control of the very fabric of time and the fallout that happened as a result of both that and the attempts to repair the damage.

I had Kurt Busiek sign this issue at Comic-Con a few years ago and told him it was my favorite comic book story that I'd ever read. He replied that he thought it was probably the best thing he had ever written. He hopes to surpass it someday, but, if he doesn't, he's okay with it as a high point.

I know that my own enjoyment of a particular piece of art shouldn't depend on what other people think of the same piece, but I still can't help but find his response to be very validating.
