I have always loved reading, but when I was younger, comic books weren’t really on my radar. It wasn’t until recently that I have wanted to delve into the comic world. I started with Batman: Year One. I love that so much of it is also Detective Gordon’s story and not just Batman’s. I honestly think I have to go back a re-read it because I was so excited and it was almost a year ago and I don’t remember everything. I want to share with you a few of the comics I have found that I am planning on reading in the coming months.
1. Pretty Deadly– I read an article last night, er, very early this morning, about the comic book publisher, Image. It prompted me to look into the many comics they put out. I got on my Kindle, opened the Comics app (oh my goodness this is my FAVORITE app) and got to searchin’! I came across this comic and for some reason it really appealed to me. I like stories with heroines at the helm, that are intense, and dark. I can’t wait to get started on this once it finishes downloading!
2. Fables– I have no idea what to expect here, but I have always liked stories that incorporate fairy tale and folklore characters, so I’m interested to see how this series unfolds. There are a lot of issues to get through, so I will probably spread this out.
3. Batman: Cacophony– This is the first Batman comic that Kevin Smith wrote. The boyfriend got me this comic book for this past Christmas because he knows how much I love Batman and Kevin Smith. I am interested to read what Kevin Smith’s Batman is like, and to read the other comics he’s written as well. I already love his movies and podcasts, I can’t imagine I won’t love the comics he writes. This right here is how much Kevin Smith loves Batman-he has an entire podcast dedicated to talking about the Caped Crusader (disclaimer-he does used some choice words, so you might use caution when listening).
4. Serenity: Those Left Behind– I love the series Firefly, and am still sad there was only one season. Luckily, Joss Whedon gave us this as the first of a few miniseries. This is definitely one that I will be reading in the next few months. I’ll take as much of my favorite Browncoats and the best damn ship in the ‘verse as I can get!
Comic books tell stories, just as television, movies, or other books do, and I love stories any way I can get them. I am really enjoying muddling through and finding new stories to read. I can’t wait to dive into the books I have listed above! What’s your favorite comic? Any suggestions for me?
