There’s something about me and comics that have just always gone together, much to my shame as much as my pleasure. It was one of the first things I can actually say about myself with any certainty: I am a comic fan. Except, standing at Wondercon, watching the Manga Fairy Girls and the Soldier Boys wandering around and being stared at by the men in Flash t-shirts in line to get Geoff Johns’ signature, I felt completely disconnected from the whole thing. Shit, I thought. What if I’ve stopped being a fan?
(Yes, including liking Young Avengers.)
