    Anyone read comic books?

    Marvel, DC, Image, anything really.

    I personally really like DC comics, though there current state is getting screwy. Right now I'm mostly just following Wonder Woman and the new Shazam title.

    I'm less a fan of Marvel because I was never a fan of how "shared" the universe there is. A lot of times it feels like I'm reading less about certain heroes, and more like I'm reading random chapters of a wide-reaching "Marvel" soap opera. A lot of characters seem to lack unique supporting casts, instead relying on other established Marvel heroes to act as one. It's not bad, though. I still dig some of their stuff. Right now the only Marvel comic I'm following is Ms. Marvel, but Immortal Hulk was really good before I had to drop it to save some cash. >_>

    Outside the Big Two I really like Saga, but I'm just slowly going through that. Haven't come close to catching up yet lol.
    Life is demanding, without understanding.

    I don't read as much anymore. I used to be a huge avid reader as a kid. There was a point where I had a falling out but the 2002 Sam Raimi Spider-Man movie helped reinvigorate my interest in it. My big favorite one that I used to read a lot is Ghost Rider who is to this day my all time favorite comic book character. The 70s comics were good but it was the 90s era Danny Ketch comics that I would read the most and was a huge part of my high school years. I was also big on The Punisher and Hitman around that same time too.

    I have been wanting to get into manga but haven't dove into that pool just yet.

    I never been into comics on a large scale. If I ever were to get into them, it would be the stories that are more off the script and not so mainstream. I feel like Marvel and DC get way too political anymore and if I were to read comics, it would be to escape reality for a bit, not focus on it even more. Ya know?

    I need to read more of the manga I have in my collection. Especially the samurai manga as well as my omnibus of Astro Boy.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him....
