It’s summer in the Northern Hemisphere, which means that many of us are gearing up for a summer vacation. While packing up your sunscreen, beach towels, and flip flops, do you also pack up comics to read?
Comics don’t necessarily fit the classic ‘beach reading’ stereotype, but why shouldn’t they? For every type of book you see around the pool, there are clear comic parallels. For every Judy Collins steamy, Fabio-covered novel, there is a romance comic that’ll put it to shame. Sci-fi? C’mon. Espionage? You betcha. Biography? Yarp.
Comics aren’t a genre, they’re a medium, and whatever you think of as vacation reading can easily be found in a graphic format. So, we want to know, do you read comics on vacation? Vote in our reader poll, and use the comments to tell us which books are packed in your beach bag this summer.
