What the hell was I talking about? Oh yeah, my taste in comics. So basically, I do have a specific method to my madness and it does not include brand loyalty. However, I do become attached to particular creators. I choose to bother them with naggy questions about their processes or the things that inspire and influence their work. Most of the time they are kind enough to answer. I hold no loyalty to Marvel or DC. I certainly take more time to read books from Oni Press, Boom Studios, Fantagraphics and Image over the regular superhero comics. That isn't to say I'm unfamiliar with superheros. Quite the opposite. I grew up in love with all things X-men & Spiderman. I was in love with Chris Claremont's work and I use to wear a t-shirt that said I was Wolverine's love child. The issue is that I simply became bored. Things started getting re-hashed, re-used, my favorite characters started being written by lesser gods (comic book creators) and I decided I needed something with more heart. That's when I got REALLY heavy into indie comics and never really looked back.
|Except for this, I remember disliking this.|
Let's see, oh DC. I've never been huge into DC superheros. Beyond the occasional Batman, I'm been mostly heavily dedicated to Vertigo anti-heroes of old, Hellblazer, Sandman, V etc. It should be noted that I attempted to get into Fables, failed to admire it and left it in the dust some long years ago. Don't bother trying to get me to read Fairest either. Not interested. Then there is Darkhorse which after suffering the loss of Star Wars, is attempting to recover and really needs to step up it's game. I've always been a Hellboy fan...pretty much everyone who's worked on Hellboy has made it into my favor in some form or another.
