And that’s what I thought love was like: perfect.
It isn’t.
I thought love was supposed to make you feel like you’re invincible.
It doesn’t.

Love’s a wreck. It’s not like what they show you in movies or  pop songs. It’s terrible.

But why am I still waiting for the one?
Because even if love doesn’t make me feel invincible, it makes me feel alive. Those short, flashes of brilliance and happiness makes me feel like everything’s worth it.

Some variants I drew. Homages to some of the coolest Image books from 25 years ago! I homaged Jim Lee Wild CATS 1 cover for The Walking Dead, colors by Dave Stewart. And Rob Liefeld Youngblood for Invincible, colors by Nathan Fairbairn. Comes out next month! (Feb)

My dear, In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
I realized, through it all, that… In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.

My dear, 

In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.

In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.

In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.

I realized, through it all, that…

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

And that makes me happy.

For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.

Truly yours,
Albert Camus.
