Why I love comic books

Comic books. You either love 'em, or hate 'em.

Now, as you know, or are now finding out, I am a female. When I usually tell people that I love comics, they think I mean manga or something. But I tell them 'No', I love comic books. X-Men, Fantastic Four, the Avengers.

I don't favor DC Comics, simply because they don't really have intricate details on the story line and characters. But I very much like Marvel, as the imagery is heavenly, and the story is delightful.

My favorite comic is X-Men, and I'm basically an X-Men encyclopedia.

You can ask me about any character in there, and I could give you loads of facts. Any other girl out there obsessed with X-Men, or any other Marvel comic?

People think of it as a childish pleasure, but I think of it as a way to get your mind off of the cruel things happening in our dimension.

Principle shows it is possible that there are alternate realities, and I wonder what mutation/power I would have in that alternate world.

But back to the fact that people think of it as childish.

Nerds like comics. Nerds know best, or at least that's what I think.

So if nerds know best, and they like comics, doesn't that say that comics are, in fact, a good think?

I would like to know what your thoughts are! Please leave a comment below :)
