    The Earth Moved...

         So as a kid I grew up in the styx.  Backwater country and one of my great pleasures was to go to the local Bailey's Drug store for a ice-cream float and the latest Star Wars, Batman, and horror comics.  But I certainly wasn't a fan.  Even...

    Silver Age Reader

    I am a silver age comic book reader. I really do not have much of a story to share about that. Only high points are I need issues 1,2 of daredevil to finish my run and the first 17 issues of fantastic four and then I will have all those. My latest trend is the buying of house of...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Blackest Night

     Even though only 2 issues have come out so far this could be one of the best comic book stories to come out since Watchmen. This story has simple premise, (Unlike Final Crisis) great characters, and some of the most beautiful and detail art out there. If your comic fan u...

    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!
