If you ever run up against guilt for buying a toy, or watching a cartoon, or getting wrapped up in a story from your childhood, move past it.
I've been reading comics for a long time. At first I was confused by the characters, the events, the storylines. Characters would come and go with barely a mention of a name. That confusion was the hook. My youth meant that I was comfortable with discomfort. The taste made me hungry. The hunger made me hunt.
