I had never, in my entire life, read a comic book. Until the last two years, when my library at school invested in a graphic novels section. I know they're not "technically" comic books, but here are the graphic novels I have read in the last two years:
Preacher (I read the entire series. I think it may be my favorite thing ever now.)
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Green Lantern: Darkest Night
MARVEL Civil War
Batman & Robin (The newest series by Frank Quitely)
There are others, I just can't remember them all right now. I still don't have regular access to comic books... there are no bookstores in this area within 100 miles, and no one else sells them. But I've really fallen in love with the medium, and I could see myself becoming very addicted if I had the opportunity.
Yeah, but I never know what I will like and what I will not. For instance, I actually hated Arkham Asylum. It was strange and oddly drawn and I never could tell what I was looking at. It was too symbolic... too artistic. I didn't even like the story that much. On the other hand, I thought I would HATE Bone, and I really liked it.
Besides that, there's just something about the physical shopping experience, of being able to hold them and see them and look at them before you buy.
I really would like to get involved with them, though. Especially the new storylines that MARVEL is pushing out, the new #1's.
Archie comics does the Sonic comic and the newer Megaman comic. All they had to do was drop Sega and Capcom a line and see if they were down for a crossover. Ian Flynn, the writer, had this to say on the matter:
"I'm already living the dream by writing the Sonic titles," Flynn said. "Then I got to live the other dream of writing for Mega Man. With that many dreams being handed to me, I figured it was only a matter of time."
