I used to read comics when I was younger, but even then not regularly. I had a few issues of Batman and some GI Joe comics (I remember having the one that focused on Snake Eyes storming Destro's castle that had no dialogue, that was really cool). I never really had a big interest in them, so I just stopped getting them.
I've always been interested in the characters, just not enough to invest in the books. I kept up with major events through friends, internet posts, and video games when it happened.
Anyway, I read about the DCnU and thought that it might be a good time to get on board. I saw a bunch of Marvel books going back to #1 as well. Couple that with becoming friends with a neighbor who worked in a local comic shop for 17ish years who had a HUGE collection that I can borrow from to catch up on stuff and now I'm reading books. :)
I currently have about 25 books on my pull list between Marvel and DC (and I'm trying the Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi from Dark Horse). For DC, I'm getting:
- Justice League
- Batman & Robin
- Wonder Woman
I wasn't going to pick up Wonder Woman, but I saw the cover for #4 and thought it was really cool, so I picked up the previous 3 and discovered it was actually an entertaining read. :D
Looking forward to hanging out here!
