Comic Book Commencement!

Congratulations to all the graduates of 2007!

While trolling on-line for something inspirational to share with this year's graduates, I found an excellent commencement address that has deep roots in the world of comic books.

Check out Hollywood producer Michael Uslan’s commencement speech to grads at Indiana University, from May 2006. You can read it

His advice to "follow whatever your passion may be in life and do something you love" is a pretty easy thing to say and a very difficult thing to actually do. But it's worth pursuing!

My advice to 2007 graduates? Simply be open to all the possibilities. Working hard and having fun don't have to be mutually exclusive. It's important to learn that it's far more rewarding to have a good life than to have a good career.

And remember, much like the monthly payment on a Ferrari--- with great power comes great responsibility.
