So I love comic books, but due some changes in my life last year, (relatives living with us, buying/moving into a house, new job) I fell more than six months behind on some and close to a year on others. So, over the last few weekends, my husband and I have been playing catch up on them. Basically, we’ve dedicated our last free weekends before graduations/ weddings/birthdays take over our lives for a few months to comic books. Now we know which ones to take off our sub list and which ones to ensure stay on it.
A few that we are definitely keeping on our subscription list are:
- Ms. Marvel
- Invincible (written by Robert Kirkman [writer of the Walking Dead])
- Harley Quinn
- Letter 44
Those are just the irresistible ones. A few we are talking off are:
- Deadly Class
- The Empty Man
Both of those of are better read as a graphic novel / trade paperback. I really like the first story arc of Deadly Class, but I found it a lot easier to keep track of the story when I was reading a bunch at a time instead of monthly, which is how most comics are published. These are just a few notes from our recent comic catch up. I’ll probably have more once we finish catching up with current issues.
- What are you favorite comics right now? Share any of mine?
- Do you ever feel that a comic is better when read as a graphic novel? Preference?
- If you had to pick one graphic novel / graphic novel series to introduce a friend to them, what would you choose?
