Some of us live in places where the only place you can buy comics is Barnes and Noble.
Some of us don’t like comics because of the decades of continuity, complicated multiple universes, and the fact that, while there is a huge amount of talent in the industry, there are countless comics that have been tainted by poor writing and artwork.
Some of us prefer films because it is more relevant to our interests.
Some of us don’t have the income or time to spare to enjoy comics.
You don’t need to have read the comics to appreciate or be a fan of a character.
This attitude of superiority from people who are “real fans” because they read the comics makes me rage so hard.
Maybe people would be more eager to read comics if comic fans were more inclusive.
“Some of us live in places where the only place you can buy comics is Barnes and Noble.”
Buy comics? Ha. Free comics are all over the Internet. Or even Wiki the characters you want to obsess over. I can appreciate my favorite characters appearing on the silver screen, but that it not the ONLY version of that character. If you’re going to obsess over a character, at least know who he or she REALLY is. Not some “misunderstood bby needing a hug”, but a fucking genocidal maniac hellbent on the destruction of an entire race simply because he deems it so.
This attitude of justifying a character’s actions without knowing who he really is from casual fans because they see one version of him in a couple of movies makes me rage so hard.
