I love to draw and tell stories. I have been drawing since before I could talk and was caught drawing on the walls. I am currently working on getting the 4th issue of my comic book done. My comic is called Peter Pan the Vampire and information about it can be found on indyplanet.com Rentnarb Studios Comics can be found anywhere by searching for rentnarb on facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and of course deviantART. Follow me on those sites, but be warned that all I do is post pics of Peter Pan the Vampire/rentnarb stuff, my wife and kids (3 girls & 2 boys), comics I read, movies I watch, and toys I bought.

13 Reasons Why is on Netflix.  I honestly had no interest in it as my wife started watching it.  It drew me in though.  It was a bit close to home with some of the stuff that has been going on with two of my daughters and also with how I myself felt in high school (the nineties).  

This show is really good, very well made, with strong acting, and a VERY POWERFUL message.  I am not sure it is right for high schoolers, but I did watch things like this when I was in school so I have a hard time judging that kind of thing.
I never fit in.  I still do not but back then I thought it was more important fitting in than fitting in really is.  There was even a time when I tried to pretend that I wasn't into comics, cartoons, and toys, but it did not last and I was bullied in school about it.  When I would say that I wanted to make comics when I grew up I was told to think about what I really wanted to do for a living.
It never really stopped.  Just this fall in my nineteenth year of marriage I got talked into working with my father for a week trimming trees and got a stronger idea of his opinion of me.  My dad was surprised that I could even do hard work.  When I asked why I was told it was because I do a lot a "lazy" things.  When I asked what that meant I was filled in that drawing and reading are things lazy people do and that I was always "lazy" growing up.      Yeah.                     I haven't worked with him since not just because of that but also because I got stiffed for the hours that his equipment had flat tires.  My relations with my family has always been strained with how I've been treated, my wife has been treated, and now my kids.  
Sorry for the downer dump, but this show brought up a lot of feelings.
I even entertained the idea that death might be the only way out that I had.  That was a very short time, but it was there.  Drugs got involved, drinks got drank, but eventually meeting my wife Annie and getting back into art and comics convinced me that these feelings were only temporary.  They were.  It's all about choice.  You choose what holds you back and what drives you forward.  The exact same thing that holds one person back is actually the thing that pushes another person to do more.

Back to the show.  Each episode is based on a tape that and each tape is about how a different character lead to what the main character Hannah to kill herself.  There was a lot of crying on my part while I watched it.  There is a lot of swearing in it, two rape scenes that were disturbing emotionally (which I believe was the point), and the suicide itself was pretty rough to watch.  More so for the scene when the parents find her.  It's got me tearing up right now.
