Drowning in a Sea of Comic Books

Marvel Unlimited is ruining my life.

But I’m not complaining.

I’m sure that this medium is not new to many of you but it is to me. I knew it existed as I’d seen in on the Marvel website, but once I realized that I wanted to delve further back into the volumes of some of the series that I’m currently reading (as well as other ones), it was obvious that Marvel Unlimited would be the easiest and most economical way to do so.

In the single evening after signing up, I read issues 1-6 of the current Invincible Iron Man series (leaving me 7-11 to read in order to be caught up), the entire 2012 Hawkeye series, and two or three issues of Captain America where he is shot after Civil War. I pretty much read for over four hours straight. I made myself go to bed because I knew I’d be regretting it the next day at work if I didn’t.

There is so much to discover, over 17,000 books, that I now have access to. And with my addictive personality, that means I’m pretty much going to devour as much as I can as quickly as I can. My love for Marvel is nothing new, but now that I’m starting to learn the true history and subtle nuances of the characters, I just cannot get enough. This is what I live for; this is why I love being a geek.

If you need me, just yell down the rabbit hole. But don’t be mad if I’m too absorbed in my reading to answer back. It’s nothing personal.
