Actually, she won't kill me, unless she's trying to get to the books first. It's really weird, but I'm enjoying reading things now. The weird part is because, as a kid, I never read comic books. Now, I'm reading things like Supreme Powers, Rising Stars (both obvious because they are written by jms), and I just picked up 6 out of the 7 issues of DC's Idenity Crisis series. (Comic Bookie was out of #4 - grr...) Along the way, I've been getting Jen involved in some of these, mainly because the stories are good and/or interesting.
She's a little blown away because all she knows of most of the popular characters is the TV version, like Superfriends. She really didn't grasp that Batman was basically a vigalante who had parental issues, because she never read the books. The name Frank Miller meant nothing to her. The sum of her experience with Superman was from Superfriends and those Christopher Reeve movies. And the concept multiple Green Lanterns and Flashes... well, she'd have none of that! But now that she knows about some of these, and has the context for things like the 1985 Crisis series, she's actively reading these as well.
Have I mentioned just how exactly cool my wife is?
