I am the only comic nerd in my family 90%
I come from a family of comic nerds 10%

Do other people in your family read comics?

Technically it would be a geek. But some of my brothers like comics too.

#11 Posted by nobodyisemo (261 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm trying to get my brothers into comics. I've been rather successful so far, but I don't think they'll ever be huge fans.

My family only consists of my son, my girlfriend and myself. My son buys and reads comics on occasion but that's it.

I have a cousin that got me into comics, we're the only "comic guys" in the family I can think of. Tho I do have some other type of nerds in my family, like a couple of Trekkies and STAR WARS freaks

#22 Edited by Saint_Wildcard (10292 posts) - - Show Bio

Yep. My family are mostly jocks and pretty people so they've shunned me.

Sometimes it gets a little annoying explaining comic book stuff to my sister whenever a new movie is coming out

#31 Posted by TazzMission (5488 posts) - - Show Bio

i wouldnt call myself a hardcore nerd per say since im still learning everything on all charachters but comic movie wise no because a lot of my cousins who are older ( 30's) love the comic book movies that come up. it opens up some nice discussions for a change

@batmandemon23:

I know right. I always have to explain to my girlfriend who "Loki" or "Red Skull" is.

#37 Edited by Rabbitearsblog (5835 posts) - - Show Bio

#46 Edited by batman922 (268 posts) - - Show Bio

Im the only one who collects them but my brother is a mooch and reads all my trades so I guess I'm the only nerd and he is just a casual reader.
