Columbus’ Comic Book Club Affects Student Body
Since the beginning of the Comic Book Club, students have had a safe room to talk about the passion they have for the unique books. Regardless of the day or week, Ulloa has always been available for discussion.
“Ever since a young age I have loved comic books. They were my escape out of the real world,” said David Ulloa, Comic Book Club moderator. From the very start of the club, Ulloa has led the club to what it is today. “I think that having a club like this in a school shows people that Columbus truly cares about their students’ interest.”
Due to Daniel Moure’s, a Comic Book Club member, passion for comic books he has been able to find a group of friends that share the same rare affection. “This club gave me the opportunity to meet my best friend. The best part of this club is that it gets people who you would never see talk to each other, begin to communicate due to each other’s love for comic book,” said Moure.
“I started this club because growing up people had to hid their geek side. So I wanted to begin something where people could feel comfortable to speak their mind and not feel judged by it,” said Ulloa. Throughout the various years that Ulloa has moderated the club he has seen how an extracurricular has affected many that walk by his room. “I am extremely proud of what other students and myself have been able to create throughout the years.”
Although the club is fairly new, many students have taken their time to discuss about the resentment they have for the uncommon book. As the years continue to pass, many things would come and go, but the Comic Book Club would always be there as a safe place for students to assemble.
