My interest in comics grew gradually over the past 3 or 4 years and is mostly the result of peer pressure. It started when I read an article listing Rob Liefeld’s worst drawings. I laughed for days but still felt as though I could never be a “comic book geek.” At roughly the same time my online friend circle widen and everyone was reading graphic novels. I would randomly ask for suggestions and then look up them up on wikipedia. I’d go to my comic book store with a list of things I might want to try. It took at least 2 graphic novel series before I realized that this would be more than a passing fancy. The more I read, the more suggestions seem to come my way. Now my trade paperback and monthlies stacks are growing and I am still interested in finding new and interesting comics.
