I've always loved comics. It started before I could even read,we had a couple of Smurfs and Little Lulu comics,and I loved the layout and format, illustrations and words together just seemed so natural. I learned to read with books of newspaper comic strips,like Peanuts, Heathcliff,and Ziggy. Later I would start reading Archie and other such comics,before finding scifi,fantasy and superheroes. I loved the old Dark Horse Star Wars comics,the KISS comics,later I got into old Marvel stuff,Valiant and Image,and mangas. My favorite medium for stories is comics,with traditional books,I mostly stick to nonfiction like biographies, history and reference books.
