I've noticed that on the "how old are you" thread and in other places, the old folks on the Vine (like me) often seem a little embarrassed about saying exactly how old they are. Usually they just describe themselves as "more than twice your age" or something like that. Sometimes it seems like there's only a few of us in an ocean of teenagers, which can make it feel like we're old fogeys crashing a youngster's game.
But hey, we like comics too. Nothing to be ashamed of, fellow ancient ones!
So, here's a thread for old folks to represent! Be proud! Come out of your old-age closet!
When did you start reading comics? How do you feel about being an old guy with all these youngsters around (what with their horseless carriages and all)?
Myself, I just turned 40 today, and I'm proud to be a firmly middle-aged man who loves comics. I've been reading off and on since the 80s, but I've probably never read as much as I do right now. I'm in a happy, comics-laden phase of my life, and I think it's actually a lot of fun to mix it up with people of all ages here.
How about you?
