Shouldn't this be in the books section...

And yeah. I read them. Quite a few of them, actually. Ultimate spider man, iron man, ultimate fantastic four, among a few others. they're fun.

No more Kingdom Hearts or androgynous Japanese with stupid hair. Ever.

No.


I used to read a lot of Comics, mainly the original Spiderman, X-Men and Captain America (how times change). I just never made the transition from kid-comics to the darker stuff, aside from the occasional Graphic Novel now and then.
I don't think Comics are as big in my country though.

I guess it would be a Graphic Novel, which is different that a comic for some reason, but I think everybody here would agree that Watchmen is absolutely incredible.

The only place I've ever even seen comics being sold was an airport bookshop. In Cyprus.

Ah, the comic. Paper, together with it's bride Ink, come together to form a vivid fable that will captivate everyone from toddlers to the sickly near-corpses, staying alive through a black magic concoction of artificial medicines. Within these pages, every conceivable emotion can displayed; rage, sorrow, lust.

My very favorite comic book protagonist is The Incredible Hulk. He is the unachievable, unstoppable force that lies in wait within us all. And that is why I respect him.

I've recently started reading batman comics. I started with No Man's Land (crossover arc) and its lead-in story arcs....and it's great!

I still dunno if I like marvel or DC better...but right now batman seems better than all the marvel comics I've read.

A comic isn't necessarily a fable.
