Now I’m not crazy about the comic book format, but I’ve occasionally found a few I liked. A month or so ago I went to the local comic-con. There were cosplayers, lots of young men that could use more baths, lots of action figures and about 1 million comics.
It was overwhelming. And I do have some idea of what I like…but it was still almost too much.
I found a set of the Alien vs. Predator comics. I was looking for the Bruce Campbell comic, but didn’t find it. I also picked up some random X-Men comics, an Iron man comic, and some…I think it was Hercules. I just picked things that looked interesting.
Out of these, I’d say about half actually were (the Alien vs. Predator was actually pretty good).
But I have no real interest in trying again. I have no idea how to find anything or even what’s good. It really seems designed to keep new fans away. I didn’t even really want to ask because it seemed like everyone else knew what they were doing (isn’t that always the way?)
