    I read a lot of Archie Comics before,

    but now I read stand-alone graphic novels and follow some arcs involving Batman and the X-Men. The last ones I read were the ones in the first run of the Astonishing X-Men, the one written by Joss Whedon. It was awesome!

    Digital Comics

    Some of the best free digital comics can be found at http://flashbackuniverse.blogspot.com/ The comics there are reminiscent of Marvel's Bronze Age. I'm a big fan of 70's and 80's era comics, and the Flashback titles do a good job of imitating the stories and artwork of that...

    How The World Of Riverdale Became A Positive Experience...

    I'll admit it.  I'm 30 years old, and I still read comic books.  Why not?  Some of the artwork in comics is fantastic, and a lot of the storylines in the comic books are more cutting-edge than they used to be.What makes my story unique is the fact that I don't really read the...

    Lapsed Reader

    I've been reading comics for about 24 years. I, too, had to quit because of finances. I miss them sometimes, but not as much as I thought I would. I love DC and some Marvel titles. I still go to the Superman Celebration every year.

    Take Me Away!

     I don't read them like I used to, but I've found a few short series I've liked. I just couldn't get into most Mavel titles and none of the DC.  I'm a hyper-picky customer. I admit it.
