I’ve been a huge fan of comics and graphic novels since I was a boy. My on-and-off again love affair with them over the years has depended on my available budget. Recently I got my son interested in the hobby, which gave me a great reason to reinvest myself. Here’s a few of the titles I’ve been reading recently:
Shade the Changing Girl – an avian alien inhabiting the body of a teenaged bully. This book is a psychedelic trip.
Cave Carson has a Cybernetic Eye – wild and weird underground civilisations and parenthood shenanigans.
Superman – married to Lois with a 12-year old son, Clark Kent is older, wiser, cooler and this book is currently one of the best comics available. And Lois Lane rocks!
Super Sons – Jonathon Kent (Superman’s son) is Superboy, and Damien Wayne (Batman’s son) is Robin. They team up. Shame they can’t stand each other. Awesome stuff.
Teen Titans – Robin is a little know-it-all pain, leading a band of teen heroes (Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, Aqualad). They’re making a live action TV series, so this is a good jumping on point before the show starts.
Aquaman – think he’s the lame guy who speaks to fish? Think again. While you were sleeping he became a bad-ass.
Batman – always has the most amazing writers and artists and great stories. But what did you expect? He’s Batman. Oh, and he recently proposed to Catwoman…
So there you have it. My current faves. I’ll talk about some of my all-time favourites, soon.
Have a sterling and four colour-filled day.
Yes, I love DC Comics. I used to be a Marvel fan, but DC’s consistent quality and top stories just blew me away. You can find out more about DC Comics at http://www.dccomics.com
