One of the great passions of my life is comic books, superheroes, and collecting graphic novels. I grew up reading mostly Batman and Spider-Man stories but I have an affinity for characters and stories published not just by DC Comics and Marvel Comics but also the likes of Image Comics and Dark Horse Comics. Back Issues gives me a format to explore a variety of comics on a semi-consistent basis, with new articles written every other month or so (or whenever I get the urge).
When discussing comic books, I employ a simple tier-based rating system to recommend that a comic or storyline is to be coveted, read, or simply burned. While I do go into the background and development of the story, and employ no restraint on spoilers, the review is much more of a reflection on the comic’s narrative and presentation rather than judging the artwork or creative process.
