Blogging From A To Z: E is for...

Exiles


I think this post might be too "inside" but here we go.

For me comics are all about the "What If" and the fantastic.  They are pure escapism for me.  Much like movies, I don't go to comics to be educated or reminded of real world stuff....I want to be taken away.

This series was all about the "What If"....it took characters I though I knew and introduced me to different versions of them.  Instead of just having Spider-man on the team, let's say, we met a Spider-man from an alternate reality who stopped his uncle's killer.  He would be mixed with similarly tweaked characters.

If you are a fan of Marvel Comics and alternate stories, this was a good series.

  2. It's been years since I picked up a comic and escaped. In fact, the last one I bought was called 'The Geek.' I believe they only made two issues.

    Alternate reality sounds like a blast. I'd check it out if there were comics available here, but will have to wait until I return to Canada and the States in July.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I agree with the above, I haven't looked at a comic books since... since, well, I don't even know.. :/

    I remember that they are so much fun, though.
