Rediscover my "Childhood Dream"

No 1/43 work this past weekend. It was Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. and I went back home in California to spend the weekend with family.

Whenever I go back home, I usually spend some time digging through my boxes of stuff. This is what I re-discover this time: my treasured old copy of Dou-mu (loosely translate to a child's dream) from the author of Akira, Otomo Katsuhiro. 

Just like building models and watching TV, my parents considered reading comic books a waste of time. So me and my brother had to figure out ways to smuggle comic books back home and read them in secret. Once in a while we got busted and the comic books would end up heading to the landfill or incinerator on a garbage truck. This is one of the few survivors.
