Something's been bugging me since I read the Superman article on the main page. About you know, the guy who doesn't like Superman but wants to for Man of Steel's coming out. Ignoring everything he said, I don't really follow Superman in comics. Or Green Arrow, or Batman, or a lot of other characters in Marvel or DC or the indies. I mean, I've watched All-Star Superman as an animated movie, but I had no urge prior to that to collect or read the issues. I wouldn't touch any X-Men book with a ten-foot stick, but I was more than happy watching the movies or the animated shows. Scott Pilgrim or Kickass aren't ever going to get my money for the prints, but the movies on Blue Ray? Sure, why not? And this isn't even dependent on how well they're adapted, considering I could watch Batman & Robin a dozen times over before taking on Knightfall or the Holiday Killer.
I'm not even sure why this is. Maybe because having the characters move, talk and act with voices of their own affects me more deeply than reading it aloud or projecting the course of events in my head. Maybe it's a fear of extensive continuity. Maybe I'm just a subconsciously snobby guy.
Anyway, I figured I'd share, and ask if anyone else felt this way sometimes.
