Sam Kieth, Arkham Asylum: Madness

“I can hear the bunny all the time now. Even when I'm outside, under my tree.

Sam Kieth, The Maxx, Vol. 2

“The price was physical toll. Money does little good back here. It could not buy the fit feeling that surged through my arms and shoulders. It could not buy the feeling of accomplishment. I had been my own tour guide, and my own power had been my transportation. This great big country was my playground, and I could afford the price it demanded.”
Sam Kieth, One Man's Wilderness
