Comics Reader Identity Crisis

or, What Sort of Fan am I, Anyway?

I've been reading comics blogs for a few months, and something struck me: I'm schizophrenic.

Seems like most blogs are either superhero blogs, or not. And those that are seem to be pretty divided between DC fan sites and Marvel fan sites-- although there are plenty enough that are both.

I like it all. I read more superhero comics than anything else, but then again, there are more superhero comics than anything else. I even like comic strips and panel cartoons, although I tend to find those decades after they are created. See the site mascot and title for a prime example.

One thing I miss is a steady diet of recommendations of non-superhero comics to read, even better if they're non-genre altogether. If you have some, send them my way.
If there was a survey of comics fans, I'd check "all of the above."

What kind of comics fan are you?

Funny you should mention that, bro. You must have been talking to Cole. Head over to my website to find out what kind of reader I am.

i'd check all of the above as well. But I know what you mean. How can one be both a fan of John Porcellino and a faithful Superman fan?

Now I have to go see who John Porcellino is...

Oh right. Never got into King-Cat. Any place I should start?
