I don't know if everyone does this, but I make it a point to always be listening to music when I read a comic. I try to find songs that capture the mood and enhance the comic. Usually, it's more trouble than it's worth. Sometimes though, you get lucky and you find that absolute perfect song, and you can't separate the character and the song. Maybe it's the mood, or the subject matter, but Rise Against's "Audience of One" was the perfect song when reading the original run of The Authority. Anytime I read anything with the Flash, my mind starts playing Gin Blossom's "Found Out About You." Probably the most fitting and haunting song was one that was pure luck. I stumbled upon Kelly Sweet's cover of "Dream On" by chance. It was the absolute perfect song for what is easily my favorite story of all time, Kingdom Come. I know nobody is reading this, but please share any songs that really fit a character or story for you.
