I love comic books. They are a great visual way of telling a story and I find it fascinating how characters who have been around for over 60 years are still told in fresh, modern ways.
Comic books are no longer just Super Heroes. The Lone Ranger and other western comics have returned. Fresh interpretations of fairy tales, Alice In Wonderland, or the characters from Oz provide interesting takes on classic themes. The influence of Japanese art and creators have permeated the industry as well. There is a lot more to comics than you may remember!
This Saturday, comic stores will be giving away some free comics such as Archie, SpiderMan, Superman, X-Men, Disney, Tales From The Crypt, and many more. Find a participating store near you right here.
I hope you take this opportunity to explore an art form I love!
