I'm turning Five-0 today. Not the type with Jack Lord and Wo Fat...
As one might think, this birthday has been a time of reflection on many things of which the comics portion I'll share with you today.
I'm a bit surprised by the fact that I'm still reading comics now. I think if you had asked me at 30 would I still be reading comics at 50, I would have said no. Yet, here we are, and I'm constantly finding things I missed when I was younger or before my time that I enjoy. My current faves are Don Rosa's Duck stories and classic World's Finest.
I'm also following quite a number of new titles as I mentioned in my post about the new wave of sci-fi comics
What does the future hold for comics? I suspect we will continue too see more experimentation as publishers try to duplicate the success of Walking Dead and Saga (both of which I enjoy.) That's a good thing as it's led to quite a number of new titles for me to read. And just this week, I picked up another book that looks promising called The Royals: Masters of War
From what I can gather, this is going to be a sort of Ultimates during World War II (or perhaps a bit like Uber, but less violent I bet.) Still, it's by a British team who cut their teeth on 2000 AD comics, and such guys tend to be entertaining.
So, I guess as long as comics continue to innovate, I'll continue to read them.
