Nice Surprise

April 1, 2009

When Michael came over after his shift, he came bearing gifts. Or gift. I’ve been talking about maybe buying Watchmen for a while now and he just shows up with it. I was pleasantly surprised and started reading it immediately.

I was never an avid reader of comic books or graphic novels. In fact, I don’t know the difference between the two if there is one. My only comic book experiences are the following:

1. Reading a Japanese Sailor Moon comic with Sailor Jupiter on the cover. I had no clue what they were saying but I had a pretty good idea after watching the show.

2. Reading Calvin and Hobbes.

3. Reading Peanuts comics.

The first on the list would’ve been the closest to what I’m attempting today in terms of a narrative that continues. Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes are sort of one shot deals.

I’m still getting used to reading the graphic novel style. So far, I’m liking it.
