I have to say, once you really get into it, it is a hard habit to break....yeah, even harder than quitting smoking.

Comics are great. Silly stories, escapist fantasy and lots of variety.

The Japanese and European comic book markets demonstrate this clearly. In the United States the super-hero genre dominates the market, even though other genres also exist.

Comics (from the Greek κωμικόςkōmikos "of or pertaining to comedy" from κῶμος - kōmos "revel, komos",[1] via the Latin cōmicus) is a graphic medium in which images are utilized in order to convey a sequential narrative; the term, derived from massive early use to convey comic themes, came to be applied to all uses of this medium including those which are far from comic.
