years of watching comic book movies from The Mask to The Avengers, it
took me a surprisingly long time to actually pick up a comic book. Sure,
I had read the Beano and the Dandy as a kid, but I’d never given the
superhero books a real chance.
all changed when I had a wander into my local comic book store and
stumbled across Tom Taylor’s War of the Realms: Strikeforce. The cover
jumped out at me, as I saw some of my favourite film characters kitted out in Asgardian armour and weaponry. From then on, I was hooked.
binged the entire War of the Realms event, tie-ins and all and
seriously questioned why I hadn’t picked up a comic sooner. However, I
tended to stay with Marvel rather than branch out into the unknown. I
preferred the MCU to the DCEU so it was a no brainer.
came Tom Taylor again, kicking off the newest run of Suicide Squad.
Having followed the author, I figured I would dip my toe into the waters
and it dawned on me. I made a mistake here. I should have been reading
DC all along...
