Re: Real Comics Geeks?

What's a comic geek anyway ?, I collect Sergio/ME
stuff at the moment, I also used to collect X-men
(originals from 160 - 350) but I never considered any
comic collector geeky.

People ask me occasionally about Groo, (hey my
numberplate is GROO - deliberate free advertising for
the lads !) And I show them an issue, and I point out
the exquisite artwork, tasty colouring, captivating
prose, (Sorry Stan, don't buy comics based on actual
lettering style - man I feel guilty!), and humorous
dig at society laced with a moral. 

Collect all that together makes a strong case for the
comic to be an artwork worth appreciating, the normal
response I get is "Hey man, I never looked at it that
way before, they're quite cool".

Same with the X-Men, it used to be a huge platform for
the dream of equality in society. Along with awesome
artwork and dramatic story telling, but it went too
commercial for me, too many crossovers.
