I’ve collected a large number of comics over the years.  I primarily chose them based on recommendations I’ve read over the internet.  Not all of them are immediate winners though and some series require a bit of stumbling before they hit their stride.  My normal purchasing routine is buying the first volume of a series and if I legitimately enjoy them, I continue.  I’ve taken some interest in some cult favorite series and purchased the first couple of volumes of each to test them out.  Unfortunately today’s post is about five series that haven’t really kindled a fire underneath my stomach enough for me to continue the series.  I’m asking you the reader to back up some of these series that you’ve hopefully read and persuade me to continue reading.

So about last year, I really started getting into comic books and graphic novels.  Back then, I primarily stuck with graphic novels, stories that had distinct endings and were no longer in continuation.  The primary reason I did this was because I wasn’t sure that I wanted to get into the monthly issue release that would warrant me spending money and money over time and again.  So as the year progressed, I had successfully finished some of the greatest graphic novels out there: Watchmen, Wanted, The Dark Knight Returns, Black Hole, along with volumes and compendiums of the most popular story arcs such as The Long Halloween, The Walking Dead Compendium I + II, and Kick-Ass.  Now that I’m nearing the point where there aren’t many graphic novels left that I haven’t heard of.

So I’ve begun getting into series that are now ongoing, finding that they’re even more exhilarating because it’s like I’m joining a number of fan-bases that are eagerly awaiting the release of the next issue.  It’s a similar feeling as waiting for The Winds of Winter, or the next Superman vs. Batman movie.  With anticipation, there is some form of unification of a fanbase that spawns theories, speculations, and the like.

So today we’re going to talk about some of the comic books that I’m reading and some that I plan on beginning to read. Minor spoils ahead!

First off, Ron Perlman is one hell of a guy.  When Perlman caught wind of a terminal child wanting to be dressed like Hellboy for the Make a Wish Foundation, he took it upon himself to dress up with him, donning the infamous horns and fist to hang out with this little boy.  He’s all around awesome for doing this, and this story makes me feel all fuzzy inside.  I absolutely loved Hellboy and I like Ron Perlman even more now because of him doing this.

And this act of kindness got director Guillermo del Toro thinking of another Hellboy movie, which would be AWESOME, considering I loved those movies.  Check out the link below to see what del Toro had to say.
