When we last joined our hero is was in an epic battle with the evil sectaires of the steel castle.
Confession time here at Chachi Says. You better sit down for this.
Im not a huge comic fan…… See if you were sitting down you wouldnt have collapsed from that statement.
Now i have nothing but the utmost respect for the people who create comics, from the writer all the way down to the Inker *cough cough Tracer Cough Cough.* Im kidding.
The art is usually amazing and the stories are filled with amazing twists and turns but i think it’s the drawn outness that doesnt do it for me. The waiting in between chapters. The paying of 3-5 dollars to get a 10 -20 page book. (Now before you start defending the noble art of Comics, let me finish. ) Why would i go through all of that when i can pick up a very thick book, sit down and read the adventure from start to finish, with Closure.
However, i sat down and i started thinking about why i havent read comics, why i never made an attempt myself to pick up some of the books and check them out. Then i realized that i was wrong. i realized that not all of the comics continue week to week. and that some have deep touching tales to tell. I.E. Pride of Baghdad Amazon gave a description of this
“In the spring of 2003, a pride of lions escaped from the Baghdad Zoo during an American bombing raid. Lost and confused, hungry but finally free, the four lions roamed the decimated streets of Baghdad in a desperate struggle for their lives. In documenting the plight of the lions, Pride of Baghdad raises questions about the true meaning of liberation – can it be given, or is it earned only through self-determination and sacrifice? And in the end, is it truly better to die free than to live life in captivity?”
It was a great read. Loved every second of it.
So if you need me, I’ll be the full grown adult male, in a dress shirt, dress pants, black plastic glasses, sitting on a park bench reading this:
Chachi Says: huh, guess you can judge a book by more then its cover..
