So far I’ve never read comics, but my husband does. I always browse around in the manga section of our local comic shop (because they look so cute), but never bought anything. I rather make up pictures in my own head instead of reading a picture story.
My only experience with comics at all in the past was “Guilty Pleasures” and that was a total disappointment. I mean, I hate Anita Blake anyway, so why I bothered in the first place I don’t know. Then the artist did it all wrong, people didn’t look like I imagined them, too many curls, it just didn’t feel right.
Then I heard about Marvel’s Pride & Prejudice coming out. Sounds nice enough, but look at the sisters! Bloody hell! What were they thinking? The all look like they are on drugs. Jane looks like a right bitch. I don’t think so.
Recently I saw on Elisa Rolle’s LJ her reviews of Yaoi and I thought, maybe there is more to manga than I thought, :-). To cut a long story short, I found some Yaoi that sounded interesting enough on a swap site. The first one I’m going to get is Fake (v.1) by Sanami Matoh. It sounds like a story I’d read in novel format, so it might be quite enjoyable – I hope. On the other hand I might be totally wrong and find out that manga isn’t my genre after all. I’ll see.
