Why We Love Comics:
This community is about comic books, comic-related films and web comics. Any news or events with regards to comics conventions.
For decades, the mainstream industry has been the forefront of the comics industry. Some people will put off these books, calling them "silly superhero stuff" but in fact DC Comics, Timely, Marvel and Warren have given us fans hours of great entertainment.
Did you know that before the Comics Code and Dr. Wertham's book on the "evils" of the comic book industry, the mainstream books were just are dark, twisted and creepy as they are today? See EC Comics, Tales from the Crypt. See Batman packing heat!
What I love about comic books are the wide extent of this genre. From Westerns, Humor comics, Romance comics, superhero, anti-hero, soap opera, Robert E. Howard adaptations, etc., etc.
But fans of one genre should not be snobs and cut down other genres. I would never call Archie Comics silly teenage humor comics and would never say Daredevil or Spider-man are just for kids or that Superman is just silly superhero stuff.
Don't be a snob, be a reader!
This community accepts readers of all kinds and covers topics as comic book conventions (many of which are straying from their comic book roots and becoming pop art and costume festivals, sadly), the latest "big arcs" from DC Comics and Marvel Comics, great stories and art from Dark Horse and IDW and so on.
What I'm Trying to Do!
I will be trying to post comic book review videos from other sites to help educate the fans here. I found Things From Another World has the best videos and do try to post them whenever I can. They are a small outfit in Oregon, yet really know their comics stuff!
I accept suggestions and discussions on how to make the For the Love of Comics site better for everyone. Remember it's the members that make the site. I just set the tone.
