Buried in comics is sometimes what I feel like, when there are so many new ones coming in. In my teens, when I spent many days in the library, I surrounded myself with books and comic books. Reading material is all I craved and it didn’t matter what venue it derived from.

With the rise of kindle and electronic books, you can also receive your favourite comics digitally.
