When I first ran into writer Pornsak Pichetshote to talk about his latest DC Comics series The Sandman Universe: Dead Boy Detectives, he was nervous about the conversation that would come up — especially since I texted him prior that I had a lot to say after receiving an early copy of the first issue.

“The Lion King. Disney. Safe bet,” I hear my mom say in the other room. And with that, my family is off to the movies.
Movies seem safe. An escape, a way to forget about everything that has just happened.
The Lion King opened in June, but it’s now October. Only one small theater near us is still playing it, but tickets are only a couple of dollars. The theater is empty except for my mother, my brother, my sister, and me. My sister has just turned six. My brother is seven. I am thirteen.
The lights dim and the film begins. Everything is fine. This feels good; it’s a nice escape. The colors are bright, the music pleasant.
