I get called "a DC guy" a lot.
And it makes sense. I've spent much of my comic book reading career touting how much I dig DC and how Marvel books didn't really interest me. I also have the Justice League tattooed into my skin. Like, it's gonna be there forever. And it would be safe to say that probably 85% of my collection is comprised of DC books. So yeah I don't really get upset when people say I'm "a DC guy".
But let's bust out a hypothetical situation here: It's a beautiful Wednesday afternoon and there are new comics on the stands waiting to be purchased. We hit up our local comic shop and start browsing. Once we hit the register, being a DC guy myself you'd probably expect to see a handful of JLA/Green Lantern/Batman books among a few other titles.
But these days?
It would be more like a Green Lantern book, maybe a Justice League book, maybe some Thor because I love Thor......and a variety of Image books. Walking Dead. Invincible. Saga. Black Monday Murders. Sex Criminals. Rat Queens. Morning Glories...to name a few. These days I'm a big fan of Image Comics. And it's not uncommon for me to be walking out of my comic shop with more Image books than Big 2 books combined. And I'm ok with that.
So anyways, what I'm getting at here is Image Comics is in the midst of celebrating their 25th Birthday and we thought that was worth noting as they've provided us with countless hours and pages of entertainment. Check out this week's episode to hear more. Plus we talk about other comics, too.
