Comics and My Inner Geek

So yesterday, my co-worker brought me a comic.  I thought he was just showing me what he had purchased over the weekend but he was, in fact, showing me what he bought me!

My co-worker is gay, so naturally my wife decided to poke fun that my “new boyfriend” got me a gift.  I don’t care though.  I was SO excited to have some new reading material!

I have always been a fan of super heroes and now my son is becoming an even bigger fan (if that’s possible).  The problem is, I have never really been able to buy and read a lot of comics.  Growing up, my family didn’t have any money and now that I’m older and on my own, I’ve followed right in line.

I have bought a handful over the last year or so.  I even went to a small local comic convention a few weeks back and made a decent sized purchase.

Comics are $5 now!!! That’s ridiculous!  Who can afford that?!?!  I sure as hell can’t.

So when my friend walked in with the first issue of a new series that he ABSOLUTELY knew I would like, I could hardly contain myself.

I’m a complete geek in my super hero obsession.  Anyone who knows me will tell you that.  It’s no surprise really.

I’ll tell you what though, I’m very excited to read the new series Sons of Anarchy
