alright, so I'm really bored. And very curious. What do you prefer comic books or novels?

I grew up on comics. Now I read the occasional novel. So I voted both.

*Points to this as my least interesting post, ever.*

I read both, but the comics I read nowadays aren't exactly like the ones I read 5 years ago :p

*see, well it all depends....something like the graphic novel 'From Hell' was far more terrifying than the book, and way more cooler than the movie(as much as I liked that).... But badly drawn Batman with swollen testicles on butchers paper type comix give me the shytes big time... :p

I have a few of the SW TPB, most notable the thrawn trilogy and the XW/Rogue Squadron series, theyre freakin awesome.... adding a whole new *visual* dimension to the EU ; In fact, the NJOs 'Nom Anor' was actually introduced via the great "Crimson Empire" TPBs

:D

*runs off excitedly, digging out his From Hell graphic novel and SW TPBs*

I find that novels are far better at telling a story than comic books when they're written well. There just isn't enough room in a comic book to have a huge, intricate plot.

Both. Lots

I Love my Books and treasure them as m y most prized possasion. Unfortunatly, they still havent taught me to spell :p

I also love my comics or as i call it, manga. Normaly grand for a laugh and more mentaly stimulating then sitting in frounmt of a box

I read both. I'll read both comics or japanese manga, as well as a good book.

Novels.

I never got into comic books. I prefer the slow character development and good plot, instead of sporadic comics that I never keep track of.

:D

Never really got into comics. I used to watch the animated Spiderman and X-Men tv shows though....



I read a lot of books. I was thinking about being an english major, but I got scared off.

I would recommend to anyone that they pick up an issue of the Star Wars: Republic comic series. Excellent stories of the Clone Wars...

I love both. I have an extensive comic/graphic novel collection, and I have two big bookshelves overflowing with novels. I actually need to buy a new book shelf. I've read 10 of the top 20 novels atm. My husband says I read too much. =/

And the movie version of Sin City looks like it's going to be amazing. They have so much talent working in it.

Well for awhile everyone left the forums includeing you, and since my "master" chi3f stoped coming by, i just hungout in AAO. Now i just work, read comics, play any MOD that interests me on Half Life (cant find any Natural selection servers, even though it looks awesome).


Anyways now im more active at ConceptArt.com then anywhere. I only posted here because i collect comics andasking for comics or novels is kinda dumb when you have Graphic Novels, best of both worlds!
