    Kurt writes a two page epilogue of sorts at the end and explains the origins of the story and provides wonderful look back at his life when he wrote the story and what has happened since then. File this comic away and share it with friends who may or may not be comic book fans, I think they will all enjoy it. Read Full Review

    Thoughts on a Winter Morning is open, honest, and heartwarming. It's about the memories we cherish, and creating new memories to look back on. If you are still in high school, Thoughts on a Winter Morning might not be the best read for you. If you are like me and have a few children and have been out of school for more than a decade, I think you'll find Thoughts on a Winter Morning to be a wonderful tale of remembering the past, while keeping an eye on the future.

    While the story is a simple, warm story about a very cold part of the year and the never-ending supply of things kids can do with a giant rock, it also displays Busiek's assured knowledge of the medium. This is a story which explains how comics are a medium which invites readers into a world, rather than leaves them stranded on the outside of the pages.  Read Full Review

    For the boy that Busiek used to be, that rock on the front lawn of his parent's house may have just as well been Mt. Everest. That's the way it seemed to him whenever he climbed it and shoved off of it with his sled. Today, even with his dimmed memory, it was just a rock. He realizes that in hindsight even as he wonders what his newborn daughter will remember from her own childhood. Will she have her own version of Busiek's rock and will she someday be able to separate the fantasy from the reality? Or, like her father, will there be parts of his dreams of his childhood that she'll want to hold onto forever? Read Full Review
