Happy National Comic Book Day! Yes, apparently this is a thing and it is celebrated on September 25th. Who knew?
I think it’s pretty clear from the start of this blog that I’m a HUGE comic book fan. The combination of visual and written storytelling is awesome and allows for a really unique way to tell a story. While superheroes are often what most people think of when they think of comics, comic books are a MEDIUM and can tell ANY genre of story; drama, comedy, documentary, horror, you name it!
So go out to your local comic store and pick up an issue or two! If you’re looking for something to get you started, my current jam for superhero books at the moment is “The Mighty Thor” by Jason Aaron with INCREDIBLE are by Russel Dauterman.
Seriously, look at that cover. AMAZING!
For non-superhero books I recommend “Chew” by John Layman with great art by Rob Guillory. This series is about to end so if you like it, you’ll be able to read the whole thing.
