Comics have been eating my brain lately! Anyone else into Marvel? I was a Marvel girl in high school (not to be confused with Marvel Girl) and my brother was a DC boy. 15 years later, our battle lines are still drawn. He thinks Superman and Aquaman are awesome, and I am convinced that Wolverine would rip them to shreds in about five minutes while Deadpool mocks their remains.
I'm 3/4 of the way through Cable and Deadpool right now, and re-reading all the Wolverine books (since it's been a good 15 years since I read any Wolverine, sadly). After that, I think I'll either peek at the House of M storyline, or go back and re-read Uncanny X-Men. That series is the one that got me hooked on comics in the first place. I stopped in a comic book store to see if they had any Hello Kitty notepaper (I still love HK notepaper, be quiet) and the covers of X-Men and Uncanny X-Men caught my eye. I'm pretty sure it was love at first sight.
Despite that, I want to be excited about the DCnU. I really do, but...I've got several of the new #1 issues and I feel so meh every time I go to read them. I can't summon up any enthusiasm, and it's a shame, because reboots usually interest me (if only a little; after all, there are SO MANY OF THEM). Maybe when I (finally) get a tablet, that'll help. About half of my reason for wanting a tablet now is so I can read comics. Reading them on my phone is just not working for me, and reading them on the laptop is okay, but I can't carry them from room to room with ease. It's just a matter of picking out which tablet, really. I'm leaning toward the Amazon Kindle Tablet coming out in a month or so, but I'm not sure if I should go for something bigger than a 7-inch screen. I might have to do some maths to sort this out. And by "do some maths", I mean "sit at my desk with a ruler and a puzzled face".This entry was originally posted at http://thymindmaymove.dreamwidth.org/24542.html.
