I admit, the only comics I have read are the ones in the comics section of the newspaper. I have never been much in to comics but I’m sure if there was a good one I would be able to read it. Once I read my brother’s Star Wars comic book but I like to imagine the story in my head rather than see the picture someone else drew.
Because I have never read comics, it was hard for me to decipher what comics were adult and which ones were for children. I spent a long time on Amazon and Google trying to find a comic, however most of the ones that came up were children’s or superhero. Finally, I went to the Barnes and Noble website and found the page for Y: The Last Man. From there, I looked at the recommendations and saw which one looked the best and found American Vampire, Volume 1.
I admit, I read the Twilight Saga and really liked it. Therefore, a vampire comic sounded pretty good. I read some reviews online and I think one of my friends in high school had read it and liked it a lot. I’ll probably never really get in to comics but this one sounds promising for a before bed read.
What really surprised me was how much I liked Y: The Last Man. I was unable to put it down and wanted to keep reading it (Here I will admit that I went to wikipedia and read what happened after our book). The only complaints I had about the comic was that the author did not tell us why the men died. He made us make up a reason. Y: The Last Man might have changed my mind about comics. Sometime in the future when I have time during a summer or school break, I might go in to a Barnes and Noble and buy one. Although, I am still afraid of looking like a nerd.
