Part of being a comic lover’s wife involves having long, detailed conversations about comic book related characters. As most people who read this site or know us in person are aware, my hub is a giant Legion of Super-Heroes collector. This does tend to be the topic of many of our conversations. Especially now that they are re-booting the Legion and there are new books out.
I was online recently checking to see if anyone in our region had a new comic book exhibit to go to. We love to adventure and every once in a while you can catch one of the museums or colleges doing a comic book exhibit. While I was browsing, I was really surprised at just how many colleges and larger public libraries have a comic book collection. They varied in how big and how old their books were, but I was still excited to see so many institutions starting to catch on that comic books are an art form and cultural phenomenon that deserved to be collected and preserved.
Being married to a comic book collector and reviewer, we do have regular conversations about popular or interesting comics he comes across. Some of these are hard copy books available in the comic book stores some are web series or digital books. One such conversation got my mind going about the overall comics industry and the future of hard copy comics.
The Comic Lover's Wife is back, this time just with a question that has nagged at her brain for a while. Hopefully it can generate some discussion between you and your friends not into comics and provoke some thought.
About a couple of weeks ago, Kay Pike's bodypaint video evoking Mera and Starfire. While she didn't see them, it seems like one of the synchronized things that the Comic Lover's Wife would happen across similar work from Argenis Pinal. Here's what she had to share with us.
