Snark Free Corner for 10/16

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Enjoy!

COOL COMIC THING

One of the neat things that I have noticed about comic fans is that we all seem to have special reading habits and/or traditions when it comes to reading new comics. I think it is very cool to see how people differ in this area.

To wit, I personally order all my new comics in a pile from “Least looking forward to reading” to “Most looking forward to reading.” The only drawback to my plan is that, since I read so many comic books, I am often kinda tired by the time I get to the really good stuff….hehe.

Other people I know do it the exact opposite.

Some people save up mini-series until their finished, which is what Greg Burgas does (he usually tries the first issue or two just to make sure he wants to read the rest of it).

Sometimes, folks get out their previous issue of a title and read it before they read the new issue.

Some people just read them in whatever order they were placed in the bags.

I think it is cool that there are so many different ways of doing something as simple as reading new comic books.

COOL COMIC BOOK MOMENTS

I know it is yet another September Splash! moment, but consarnit, the September Splash pages have some awesome, awesome moments!

Avengers #58 – setting the scene:

Vision had just shown up in the previous issue, fighting the Avengers, but he broke free from his evil programming at the end of the issue, and now, in this issue, they wanted to add him to the team, but the original members had to come and check him out.

And, after some spirited tests, he gets inducted, to which result he is so happy that he begins to get emotional – which leads to the last page, which tells us – “Even An Android Can Cry!!”

Pretty darn cool, no?

Well, that’s it for this installment of Snark Free Corner.

Hope you had fun!
