A Saturday’s Worth of Comics

Ravings

Recently, I got to spend a particularly lazy Saturday catching up on comics I’ve either missed or been meaning to re-read. Rather than talk about one of those books in particular, I figured it might be nice to cover them all quickly in one post – and also share a look at my weekend!

Our first stop is The Revue Coffee Bar in Fresno, CA’s Tower District. As my wife, Kat, planned out her forthcoming Etsy store, I cracked open Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness’s Avengers.

The S Stands for Hope The Bat Stands for a Bat - Matt Reads Comics

Like a lot of kids, I grew up wanting to be Batman. I was the right age to catch Batman: the Animated Series fresh as it aired on weekdays and Saturday mornings. My parents bought me Batman Returns toys without watching Batman Returns (which thank goodness, that movie’s messed up). My grandma noted my infatuation and taped Batman ’66 episodes as they re-ran on daytime TV, while I was at school. She, my grandpa, and I watched them together.

I quickly transitioned from TV and toys into comics. And while my mom might’ve hoped Catholic schooling would teach me to live by Jesus’s principles, my personal philosophy is much more Mantle of the Bat than Bible-based.

“The victory is in the preparation.”

“Death is powerless against you if you leave a legacy of good behind.”

“All men have limits. They learn what they are and learn not to exceed them. I ignore mine.”
