Man trust me when i say i can relate. Is the police at least of any use there? because its not where I live, hell most of the time the police is responsible for killings. I was once almost killed by the Russian mafia one day while out for breakfast. everyday since i was a kid its always killings and bombings on the news, its gotten to the point where i just don't care anymore, I've gotten so used to it, it didn't even phase me when a guy across the street from my office got murdered, hell 10 minutes after hearing the news i went out with my co-workers for dinner. None of us gave a damn, people getting shot and killed has just become a part daily life.
I can't remember a time when things weren't this bad. People say we need a real life batman, but i say no, what we need is a punisher.
I'm a part of the team trying to bring Comic Con to Pakistan, we know there is a very large market for the event but the problems arise when it comes to getting comic writers and artist. Right now with the money we have its just not possible, so we're going more outside the box with our ideas of what the event is going to be like.
We already have lots of ideas but it never hurts to ask, so if you have any ideas don't be shy and comment or post or reply or whatever the correct term is. (you know what I mean)
