I must admit that before this class I never really read any comic books. I became familiar with general superheroes through movies and the Universal Studios theme park. The Dark Knight and The Fantastic Four movies are some of my favorites. This class sounded interesting because I had watched Buffy in the past, but I did not realize that I would experience so much enjoyment by reading comic books. Comic books are so much more than entertainment though. Almost everything has some sort of political or racial meaning. Looking through all of the advertisements really tells a deeper story about the time period in which the comics were written and maybe even a reason as to why the comics were written.
Also before this class, I never realized how many comic books featured superheroines. I only really knew about Wonder Woman, but there are so many more that we have read about in class and even more that we have not read about. This class is really letting me see that comic books are definitely not just for guys. If more people took a class like this or just researched more about comics then I feel like these comic books would become even more popular, with both males and females buying and reading them. I can't wait to read more!
