How to Enjoy Comics
Comics for Grown-up Tastes
The comic book is an American invention. It was born from the same age as two other imposing cultural forces: the moving picture, which gave birth to the movie, and to television, and jazz, which gave birth to popular music. Movies and jazz gave much to the world: they gave us artists as celebrities, distribution as technology, and artistic experiences as immersive as they were profound.
But what of the comic book? It has outlived jazz, but so has the hula hoop. The comic book marched alongside movies and TV until the 1950s (for reasons discussed elsewhere), but flickering lights on screens beguile the mind. But while there is no art form that demands more from its readers than the comic book, there is no art form that gives back as much as the comic book.
About Comics for Grownups
Comics for Adults
Some may titter when they hear of “Adult Comics” and think that prurient obscenities fill every page. Not so! Many pages contain less than 10% of ball hairs and other rude drawings.
Kill the Zero
Comics for Grownups seeks to grow that immature understanding and bring you some real fun stuff without making you feel guilty like you did something wrong. Because you didn’t! You’re a healthy individual mammal with oxygenated blood and a taste for what makes life fun.
Comics are good, and clean, and a font of purity in an entertainment world gone wrong. Don’t let anyone tell you different.
