  • A New Kind of Comic Fan

    A New Kind of Comic Fan

    I have a confession to make.

    Those of you who have accumulated a few decades may find this familiar. When it comes to the kinds of media we consume, it evolves over time. There are similarities – if you live 4-Color culture, it’s a good bet that sci-fi, comics, board games, and other things in that realm have held your attention at various points.
