I always thought the same thing except that soaps are for women and comics are for men. Girls like drama and boys like action.....it's quite simple. (Yes, I know it can be vice versa but this is a general statement)
I had cats my whole life and always liked them better.
Then, for some strange reason I got a dog. It took awhile but that damn dog really is man's best friend. She is loyal and actually happy to see me when I get home, unlike the cat who just wants food. Plus the dog listens and poops outside. And my cat betrayed me for my girlfriend.
You may like cats more, but you can't have the bond you have with a dog with a cat.
