Welcome to the first in our series of posts for Guys Read week. Today, Paul Vogt of The Hopeless Gamer joins us to talk about comic books -- find out what you've been missing and what you can lead your rabid readers to. Your to-read list is guaranteed to expand.
I'm here to talk to you about comic books. I grew up on the things, and they taught me how much fun reading could be. I learned about prejudice (the X-men's mutants), critical thinking (Batman's detective skills), and Christ-figures (All of Superman) as a result of reading comic books as a kid. I learned the definition of "uncanny" by the time I made it to third grade. As a media, comic books have followed me since grade school through high school and beyond grad school. All the while, I was maturing as a reader and comics were continuing to evolve as a medium.
