Anyone who knows me well enough knows I like comic books. It's not something I wear on my sleeve, but I don't hide it, either. It just doesn't come up in conversation very much.

#9 Posted by Frisco (285 posts) - - Show Bio

People know more//less by just some of the clothes I wear. I have X-Men, Secret Wars, Superman, and Batman shirts. So, I think it's kind of obvious ...

But besides that, a few friends and I spent a few good hours talking about comic characters.

Everybody knows about my love for comics. All my shirts have a comic character on them and I always have a comic on me.

People at work definitely know. One guy saw me reading them and asked: are you reading a comic book? Of course I said 'yes' and then he just shook his head and walked away. I'm guessing they just lump it in with my Trek fandom.

Nobody knows that i like comics except 2 of my friends. My dad is glad that I like comics, he was a huge fan back in the 60's,70's, and 80's. But it seems that there's a problem. 20-30 years ago, every boy read comics it was the same thing as playing football or just going outside. Now the stereotypical comic book fan is a 40 year old guy who weighs 1,000 pounds living in his mom's basement and eating cheeto's he hides under his man breasts. I'm a sophomore right now, and i don't think it would be socailly accepted that i read comics. That's just the way it is. I mean when i drive to the comic book store, it's like I'm going in to some Porn library. I try to cover up my face, get in, and get out. I know I shouldn't be ashamed, but thats just how it works out.

Most know and I have no problem telling any one who asks. But my wife thinks its funny that I can have a love for classic literature and still enjoy comics.

Considering I'm on here so often, I have an "office" at home which is basically a shrine to comics with original comic art on the walls, some comic statues and busts, the Green Lantern ring I wear (on the hand opposite of my wedding band), and finally the boxes and boxes of comics my family has had to help move around when we've moved (plus all the comics and trade paperbacks in the house). It's no secret. Even in my classroom I have comic posters and a stack sitting in the back of the room.

I've only told a few of my friends about this site. I don't really go around advertising that I like comic books to everyone I meet. It's not exactly the best ice breaker when trying to pick up girls either.

#27 Posted by KnightlyVengence (302 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, I've been a closet reader for years... I had a comic book hidden in my mattress. My mom found out and laughed. My dad doesn't know, (he'd think it's juvenile) and my friends have called me obsessed over and over and over again, I only own two comic books! I mean come on!

When my Dad got custody of my sister and I when I was in high school, he was so excited. He got his jock daughter. He got to brag that his 14 year old daughter could slam dunk a basketball and run a mile in under 5 minutes. When he found out, when I was in college, that I liked comics, he felt betrayed. Like I somehow did it on purpose just to ruin all the good memories. I finished graduate school in May, so my Dad drove down to surpise me. He came into my house, used the bathroom...then I heard the, "What the F*ck is this?" comment drift out into the living room. He had found the comics I keep in the bathroom. That weekend was horrible. That was 6 months ago; my dad can hardly talk to me. It is so screwed up. I mean, how is reading comic books the end of civilization?

Mostly fat guys named Marv around the Boston area. The few girls who like comics in new england get plucked up rather fast.

Doesn't it tick you off? I mean its not like we've turned into serial killers, or people with delusions of super powers. They can't seem to understand that it's JUST a hobby... or maybe a bit more. :)

I'm a few miles north of London and while I'd say the local stores are mostly guys, women do come in (some of them without me getting the net and ether out). The same was true when I was living in Brighton.

For most people I meet it is a conversation topic when it comes up. They may not be comic readers, but they've all seen the movies or the TV shows and have a question or two about the books.

Everybody finds it nerdy or juvenile or idiotic because people read comic books. I for one say comicbooks actually help people learn certain things, especially older ones. I've proven this time and again. Comics are the one link we all have and I'm glad to have it with the majority of you folks. Some people here I just don't want to have that bond. Lol.

Yeah thats exactly how it is... I have to do the same thing. I live in a VERY small town, and here there is a stereotype for comic book readers. much like the one described above. One of my friends came up to me the other day and just said, and I quote, "Look no offense or anything, but I think that comics are dumb and juvenile." To which I almost answered back "Well maybe I'm just trying to get in touch with my inner child, rather than trying to act ten years older than I am!" Some people just don't get it, especially in my hick town. runs out of house to start picket lines against the bias towards comic book readers... ...oi...

I dont wear alot of the clothing but when the movies are talked about I let everyone know I love the comics. I buy them and ask for some as gifts so I think its fairly out in the open as ppl said I love all the fantasy stuff
