Benny & Sid presents Chapter 15 of the serialized graphic novel The Truant Officer featuring the Mysterious Futoko

Does it require Futoko's understanding of how everyone must be his own teacher and that learning is as essential as food, clothing and shelter?

The Truant Officer #15
by Glen Bledsoe

(Your City, USA) - No matter what the cause, battles are lost or won according to the skills of the leaders of opposing forces. The winner is lauded and the loser vilified.

But what kind of creatures are we that we cannot act in such a way independent of a charismatic leader who must invoke our better selves to produce the desired effect?

Should it take a leader such as Futoko for us to understand that everyone must be his own teacher and that learning is as essential as food, clothing and shelter?
