As I learned a few years ago, the local library can be a pretty good place to find comics. Had I known this when I was a kid, I probably would have spent a lot more time at the library, and I probably would have read a lot more comics. As it turns out, despite being a big fan of characters like Spider-Man, Batman and the X-Men, what I knew about comics characters came from Saturday morning cartoons, movies, and discussions with nerdier friends. The only comics I had ever read in my childhood and teenage years were the incredibly stupid DC vs. Marvel crossover a friend in high school lent me, and a Captain America PSA comic about asthma that I got from my doctor. Neither of them made me feel any better about comics, or about having asthma.
