It’s that time of year again… the time when the geek masses gather together in beautiful San Diego to show their love and appreciation for the wonderful world of comics. (OK, really the love for movies and TV has overshadowed the comics, but this here is a place for BOOKS folks!)
So, just in time for all our friends who are jetting off to SD for Comic-Con, we ask you What is your favorite Comic-Book?
I’m a little torn on this one, since Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 8 is my current fave, and it’s hard for me to put anything before Buffy, but I would have to say my overall favorite is the Runaways series, created by Brian K. Vaughn.
Here’s a brief description from Marvel:
The teens who became the Runaways found that some family secrets are bigger than others when they witnessed their parents, part of a cabal known as the Pride, murdering a young girl during a secret sacrificial ritual. Running away from their homes, the group banded together and began a journey of discovery, both of their parents’ origins and of their own inherited powers.
As is almost always the case, what attracts me to the series is that it focuses on a group of misfits, who band together and survive by supporting and protecting each other as a family when they have no one else. Plus, they have super-powers, a cool dinosaur, and often make me laugh. It’s win, win, win!
So, before you catch that plane to San Diego, or get lost in the multitude of Comic-Con related news that will be flooding the internets, make sure to tell us What is your favorite Comic-Book?
