Comic Books

The Incredible Hulk goes to war at the conclusion of the epic saga Planet Hulk.Comic books have developed from throwaway stories into an American icon. Over the years, they went from simple pulp fiction to campy silliness and finally into legitimate literature. Groundbreaking works such as Watchmen showed the medium’s versatility and demonstrated to the world that comics can be viewed through the same critical lens as film and prose.

I love comic books for many, many reasons. While I enjoy stand-alone stories like Watchmen and Y: The Last Man, I particularly love the mainstream superheroes that have become American icons, such as my personal favorite, the Incredible Hulk. This section features my thoughts on both comic books and their related media, combining nerdy rants with history lessons on some of America’s most enduring characters.
