A Comic Interlude

I hope everyone is enjoying the special "Ken's got a new kid" series of movie posts. I interrupt that for a regularly scheduled post. See last week I promised a post about comics, and I may be many things but I aint no liar. 



For the last 2 years I have been living in the literal middle of nowhere. As such there is not a comic book store within a hundred miles of the place. As a result of that I have not been picking up the books I read on a regular basis. I feel that a major part of reading comics is discussing comics, and as much as the stereotype of the loner comic nerd is prevalent it really does boil down to a social hobby. What fun is it knowing obscure facts about your favorite heroes if you can't show off that knowledge. Yes there are a multitude of web sites and forums to do just that, but my personal proclivity is to talk to people in person. This is why comic stores are important for nerds as a place to chill out and talk to like minded folks. I hope that ye ol' comic shoppes stick around for a long time to come.



That brings us to digital comics. I have discussed them before and for the most part my feelings still apply. I would still never read comics on a MP3 player or phone. Of course with the lack of a brick and mortar shop I am considering digital books just to keep up with the fictional worlds that I love so. I also think that Marvel hit the mark with the Avengers Vs. X-men when it comes to the digital world. Basically when you picked up a physical copy of issue one, they included a code to get digital bonus features. Much like DVD commentary it had writers notes and behind the scenes info. Also you got a short bonus comic that was only available in that format that tied into the story. That is how it should be done. With digital you should get extras that add to the experience and give you more things to discuss while checking out back issues at the comic store of your choice. And no that it not a euphemism.

What do ya think? Do you enjoy comic stores or does the internet give you all the social interaction you need when it comes to nerding out over comics? Let Your F'ing Voice Be Heard in the comments, our Facebook, or hit the Contact Us button. 

I now return you to your special post series...
