A to Z Challenge: X-Men And Other Comic Books

X-Men and other comic books

I love comic books. I love the illustrations and the special abilities of the characters created in these stories. Comic books seem to be so versatile to such a wide audience. If my kids don’t like comic books, it won’t be the end of the world. Heck, I am nowhere nearly as involved as I would love to be.

I guess there’s a small part of me that remembers that feeling I had when I started collecting as a kid and hope my kids will find that same feeling with something, whether it’s sports, music, or whatever.

My favorite comic books growing up were X-Men and WildC.A.T.S. I’m a huge Jim Lee fan and his work in X-Men and WildC.A.T.S. helped ingrain my love for comic books. When I was younger, I gravitated toward Image and Marvel Comics; Uncanny X-Men, Spawn, Savage Dragon, ShadowHawk, Wolverine, Bloodstrike, and Brigade are ones I immediately think of.

Over the past few years, I’ve enjoyed exploring the world of comic books again (since my teen years) finding new and older comics, and going to Baltimore Comic-Con a few times. It’s always a good thing when I get to stop into a comic book store.

Are there any comic books that are your favorites?
