Comic Books

Postby Whiterook » Mon Apr 22, 2013 7:25 pm

I must confess, I love comic books!!! :D

Though I don't find myself buying them these days....the last ones being the Babylon 5 series back in the 90's....I could easily see myself being addicted to them again very easily. As a kid, I bought some almost weekly.

These days, I find myself wanting to get back into the Batman saga. There's a book called "The Batman Files" that chronicles the Caped Crusader in a real cool way, and though it currently runs about $100 (since it's out of print), I'll probably try to wangle it somehow, someday; but for me, the comics are still where it's at!!!

You're not alone, sir. I took a break from reading through the entire comic history of the Marvel character Havok to read every Tank Girl story I could get my hands on. And last year I finished reading the entire run of Marvel's G.I. Joe comics from the '80s and '90s. I get pretty nerdy about my comic reading.

Also, I've paid for NONE OF THIS. ZERO. Arr, I loves me innernet.

For free comics? Filestube.com is where it's at. I've seen nothing else like it...not that I've looked. Search and destroy, my friend.

I grew up with Sergeant Rock and Easy Company along with The Ghost Tank. Would wait a month for the new ones: the drug store would sell the older ones at half price! 12 cents to six was a REAL bargain to kids back then!
On average it took five Panthers to take out a Sherman. Four would be in a ditch out of fuel or broken down, the fifth one just blows away the Sherman before catching fire by itself.
