A father sent this e-mail (through the company that made the documentary about me).
I answered it as honestly as I could.
Here is the letter:
Thank you for taking the time to send me a letter about my comic book Bone.
I’m very glad you like the stories and characters. And I’m sorry the characters used language you didn’t like.
Sometimes what a grown-up thinks is ok, might seem different to a nine year old, so I really appreciate you letting me know.
Personally, I believe some of the mild language that the characters used was very tame and I would have a hard time even calling it swearing, but that’s all right, too – - not everybody has to agree about everything, right?
What is important is that you told me how you feel, and I appreciate that.
Thanks again for writing!
