My Favorite Comics

I shared this recently with George Ruiz of Le Blog, prompted by his visit to a massive comic convention, and thought it worth sharing with you. In no particular order:

  • Asterix the Gaul (fun comic about the last small village in Gaul (present-day France) that refused to submit to Roman occupation due to their superhuman strength, obtained via a magic potion that only they had)
  • Spiderman (wimpy alter-ego, but cool powers)
  • Batman (no powers, and seemed to show what could be achieved with training gadgets, and a lot of money)
  • X-Men (the Marvel Universe became real - were there really mutants around. This gave a pretext for so many different super heroes and villains)
  • The Hulk (not really sure why)
  • Captain America (first steroid freak, but very patriotic)
  • Ghost Rider
  • Some western comics
I also liked the Master of Kung Fu for a while, but it got boring as they never went anywhere with the storyline, and Dr. Strange for a while as well.
