So, do you think comic books count as reading??  I mean like..if I sit down to “read” a comic book, can that count as an intellectual activity?  I have to admit I have a secret love of super heroes.  The whole concept of a secret identity, an alternate life, or of having a secret power to use against your enemies is just a really attractive one!  I have my whole room done with this kind of theme, and I know it may make me just a big kid, or even a big dork, but I just can’t help it!
