Comics were a huge part of my childhood because they introduced me to the amazing world of reading. When I was a kid, my best buddies and I, with our weekly allowances of 50¢ jingling in our pockets, would make the mile-long walk to the one grocery store in town every Tuesday. That’s when the new comics were stacked on the grocery store’s spinner rack. Those comic books waited for us like personal invitations to worlds of heroes, adventures, and wonder.
Though I’ve moved on to more substantial literature, I never outgrew comics. My passion has recently been re-“Kindled” since I’ve found digital comics on my e-reader.
Do you read comic books and graphic novels?
If so, what do you like about them? If not, why not?
One random commenter will win a copy of the newly-released hardback graphic novel omnibus GIRL GENIUS: Agatha Awakens which Kat loved and Bill didn’t (proving my point that not everyone likes this format!). I look forward to reading your responses!
