Of course I am an avid reader! I don't read nearly as often as I would like, but I try to read as much as I can. The books that I read are usually science fiction or fantasy but I love a good suspense or thriller.
And... I love comics! The authors that write these kinds of graphic books write stories that are just as good as any of the greatest novels! Some of my favourites are still going while others are amongst the classics. My favourite comic author right now is the venerable Grant Morrison, I just can't get enough of his stories. His comic writing is one of the reasons that I am writing stories of my own.
I'll list some favourite comics here for anyone interested in reading some of the great ones I've read:
The Walking Dead, The Invisibles, The Boys, Ex-Machina, Y: The Last Man, The Punisher(Max), Spawn, The Sandman, Hellblazer: John Constantine, Saga, Aphrodite IX, Witch Doctor, Preacher, Transmetropoitan, Lazarus, Hinterkind, Doom Patrol, The Life Eaters, The Wake, Sweet Tooth, Watchmen...etc
