Last Super Hero Standing

What comic books did you read as a kid? Did you thrill to Wonder Woman, the Human Torch or did you watch Archie Andrews as Betty and Veronica competed for his love? Perhaps you travelled with Namor to Atlantis So brightly colored - they attract millions of youth Yes, and some of us in late middle age still read comic books at times The other day I saw a man in his seventies lost in a comic book fantasy on a public bus Nuff said!

I'm not a comic book collector, but somebody told me some of the rarest editions are the early prints that had the Submariner as a bad guy. They made him turn a new leaf and become a hero. Good write.

I never owned or borrowed a Comic Book as a child but I loved to read the Comic Strip in the paper and I still do whenever I get a chance..Great work about the idea..The Comics are a good way to take the mind off the stress around us..Thanks for the visit to my page..I appreciate you stopping by..Your comments were encouraging..Sara
