    Ashamed not to have read?

    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."

    I'm sometimes ashamed that I'm not more into non-superhero comics. As I hit the 50- or 40-years ago Classic Comics threads and scan Mike's newsstand, I see tons of comics, only a few of which are superheroes! Yet those are the ones I own or want to own, over and over. The sole exceptions seem to be Tarzan and Barks/Rosa ducks. It seems virtually closed-minded of me... pedestrian, even.

    There, I've admitted it.

    Hell, you're a bear. The fact that you read anything, & for that matter can type, is awfully impressive.

    Hundreds I suppose, but I'm not sure "ashamed" is the right word. There's comics I'd like to read and comics I probably should read, but I'm not ashamed if I don't. Time, cost and availability is a big factor.

    Preference is so subjective that I really don't believe there is a must read list.

    As others have said, "ashamed" is probably off-target as a verb. "Chagrined," maybe.

    I've done a lot of things I'm ashamed of not reading certain comics isn't one if them. Plus there really isn't a must read list. If I don't read Cerebus am I not a good comic fan? I highly doubt there is anyone who's read everything or at least everything everything that's popular. Maybe ScottShaw.

    No shame, but I really do need to get around to some of the pre-Vertigo stuff. Swamp Thing, Doom Patrol, Animal Man...

    Possibly my WIZARD Daredevil 1/2, only 17 pages and it really looks like a comic until you look inside and wonder WTF???? I got it in my teens, and after leafing through a spare copy, I never bothered to take mine out the WIZARD bag. Been in there since 1999.

    I would use the term 'excited' rather than ashamed. When I told my LCS owner that I had just acquired the Moore run of Swamp Thing, he said, 'Oh, I envy you being able to enjoy those for the first time!' This was a neat way to think about things.

    Things I am excited to obtain and read: Planetary, Sandman, 100 Bullets, Transmetropolitan, Hellblazer, ... many, many, more.

    I bought the two Maus hardcovers for a song in a local show last year and haven't gotten around to reading it. I guess the subject matter is keeping me away.
