My First Comics

I’ve been enjoying reading more and more of late. I recently finished the books “A Song of Ice and Fire” and loved it. I hadn’t read such fiction in a very long time. It must have been since high school. This weekend, I bought my first comics.

I got the first two (of an 11-issue series) Black Panther comics. Why Black Panther? Ta-Nehisi Coates is writing this series. I enjoy his words and sentences and such.

Ta-Nehisi has two books out, which I’ve read and highly recommend: “The Beautiful Struggle” and “Between the World and Me.” The former being a memoir (with a focus on his father), the latter is a letter to his son.

I am rather ignorant about comics. I was surprised how cheap they were. Each comic is very short. Very, very, very short. However, these first two Black Panthers left me wanting more. Can’t wait for next month!

I bought the comics at World’s End Comics in Ghent. A cool store in a rather large basement with a big collection of comics and games. There’s even a bar.
