Heroes, Villains, and Me: Stack of Unread Comics

“Heroes, Villains, and Me” is a periodic article on Geeky KOOL by Larry Litle about the world of comic books and my reaction to it. “Heroes, Villains, and Me” is not a comic book review article. I will write about current events, speculation and rumors, or my own wacky thoughts about the world of comic books and related stuff.

What is the huge pile in the corner of the bedroom? Oh that?  It is my pile of unread comics.

I am not sure what is going on with me lately.  For some reason, I am not regularly reading and keeping up with my comics.  What is my problem?

I love comic books.  I have been engrossed them since I was a little kid.  My father read comics and still does. He developed a passion in me for these adventure stories with beautiful art.  Comics were my escape as a child and I still use them to escape.

Historically, I have turn to comics not just to entertain me but also to speak about life to me.  It has always been important. During the years I had to leave comic reading, I really missed it.  I can’t imagine life without comics.

The comics I am collecting are some of the best stories and best art that I have ever read outside of the X-Men and New Teen Titans of the 80s.  I regularly read comics like Amazing Spider-Man, Renew Your Vows,  Ms Marvel, Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, and Daredevil.  When I make time, I am thrilled with what I am reading.

I go and pick up my comics every 2 weeks from the local comic stores.  I don’t have a huge monthly subscription but enough comics that I need to read a comic every day or two.  This is very manageable but I have let it get out of control.

Part of the issue stems from picking up extra comics at conventions.  They build up and I never get to them read.  I have great intentions to catch up but my stack continues to grow.

I am not sure what my problem really is with not reading my comic.  But I am committing to catching up and then staying caught up with them.

Stay Geeky My Friends!
