Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 18 of the Serialized Graphic Novel The Truant Officer Featuring the Mysterious Futoko

Salem's only original online comic!

The Truant Officer #18
by Glen Bledsoe

(Your City, USA) - What makes us who we are is often not pretty.

It is the forge and the hammer which beat us into shape.

Everyone has scars from experiences which color their character decades after the incident.

Who can forget the cruelty of being bullied, the injustice of becoming the random target of irrational aggression?

When the victim becomes angry and violent himself we mourn the ruination of a potential citizen of merit.

When the victim vows to disassemble the system which encourages the bullies we must celebrate him as a hero.

Matt: Actually, I think the people who might claim to not understand are keeping rather quiet right now.

If anyone says they don't understand, I would not believe them.
