5 Major Tips for the "X-Men" Movie Franchise Post-"Apocalypse"
Early on my mom came up with the plan to introduce me to reading via comics. Her plan worked and gave me both a lifelong love of reading and comics. The earliest comics I remember were some Spider-Man stories where he fought the Kingpin and an issue of Marvel’s “Star Wars” where Darth Vader battled a cyborg. My early comic habit got a regular fix whenever we’d take the Ohio Turnpike to visit my grandparents in Pennsylvania. We’d stop at a rest stop and I’d get a three pack of mostly Gold Key books like “Grimm’s Ghost Stories” or reprints of “Turk: Son of Stone.”
In the ‘80s I started collecting super hero books on a regular basis with “Thing” #24, where he battled the Rhino. From there I picked up a ton of Marvel books. Several years later I was introduced to the DC Universe via books like “Batman: The Killing Joke” and “Suicide Squad.” Later my tastes branched out as I discovered companies like Dark Horse and DC’s Vertigo imprint. Currently I’m a huge fan of all forms of genre comics: super hero, crime, action, horror, science fiction and fantasy
