What are you thankful for in comics?


I’m thankful for the possible return of Cyclops, who, as we all know, was right.

-Nolan Buro

Thankful for the best comic shop I’ve stepped inside, run by a great team who keep all of this fun and interesting. Thankful for good runs on titles I follow, and new comics to try. And, of course, am constantly amazed to be living in an era when we get comics-based movies and TV that are actually well made. And, Krypto. Always thankful for Krypto.

-Ryan Steans

The temporary escape from reality. Comic books have saved me from insanity on many occasion. It’s amazing what a super hero can do for the “emotional you”

-Natasha Michelle

I’m thankful for comics giving me a love for reading, developing my reading and writing skills, directing me towards a career as a librarian, and providing me with characters that helped shaped the moral foundation that guides me to this day. ‘Nuff said!

-Peter A.

I’m just thankful for comics, period. 😉

-Benjamin Blackwell
