Comics, Comics, Everywhere

December 31, 2011

I never read comics as a kid, aside from the occasional Betty & Veronica Double Digest. The world of graphic novels and illustrated serials only opened to me a few years ago, around the time I bonded with a particular group of friends. Neil Gaiman’s Sandman was my first, and in the four years since, my love of mythology- and literature-based comics has grown to include The Unwritten, Fables, Locke & Key, and more. Despite growing popularity, a lot of people are surprised to discover there’s more to comics than superheroes – though there’s nothing wrong with the classics.
