It's the Holiday Season!
Do you know a woman who reads comic books? Yeah, we don't either. But that shouldn't discourage us. I present you a list of comic books that could win over the women in your life.
Do you know a woman who loves Lost and gets teary eyed when she thinks of Sun and Jin?
I have the comic book for them. It's called Morning Glories and its published by Shadowline. There are plenty of similarities between Lost and Morning Glories. In M.G., one student's parents are killed, students have attempted to assassinate their teacher and the spanish inquisition are involved. Each issue is full of intrigue and mystery. Trust me, when I say this could be the best book on the market.
Is your lady a fan of Stephen King?
For the Holidays, surprise her with "American Vampire". I know not every woman enjoys Twilight but I am certain that they might find this graphic novel interesting. The story focuses around an American species of vampires through several decades. By the way, the first story arc was co-written by Stephen King.
Is your lady obsessed with AMC's The Walking Dead ?
You should introduce her to the comic book. I've only read the first six graphic novels but I enjoyed it. There are plenty of similarities and differences between both mediums. The emotion in the TV show can be found in the book. When Carl shot ********, all the readers' jaws dropped.
Does she miss Disney's fairy tale movies?
I would like to introduce you to Fables by Bill Willingham. The concept is the characters from the fairy tales we grew up with, now live in our world. The story is based in a neighborhood called Fabletown. In our world, Snow White is now the Deputy Mayor of Fabletown, The Big Bad Wolf is the Sheriff of Fabletown and Prince Charming has been married and divorced three times. Each issue will leave you wanting more. Fables Vol 8: Wolves (one of my graphic novels of all time) ends the story's first era.
