Re: Anyone into comic books?
Big time comic fan. It started as a kid when my dad would buy them for me (although secretly I think he was getting them for himself and telling my mum they were for me, same thing he did with the original Star Wars toys and movies).
All time fave is Silver Surfer (all though I think the origin story is OK, the 70's stuff was poor story wise, the late 80's was the classic period for me, although the new limited run stuff is really good too - in fact I'm surprised they're still doing short runs, I'd of thought he'd be more popular since the Fantastic 4 movie [which I thought was OK, but everyone way preferred the Silver Surfer bits in the movie compared to the actual Fantastic 4!]).
Other than that Batman, Iron Man (haven't seen the movie yet), and Spiderman (I thought the movies were really poor, especially Spiderman 3).
Also, I used to read Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I'm not sure if many people are aware, but TMNT started out pretty hardcore, proper stories with kills and swords going in the necks and blood spatters and stuff. Then the cartoons started and it when all kiddie friendly.
I liked the Daredevil graphic novel penned by Kevin Smith, but never really got into that character past that. Sgt. Rock is OK too.
