Comic book culture has become mainstream. Hooray! What this means is that all comic fans over the age of twenty-five can exhale and collectively let our “nerd guts” hang out. When Josh and I fell in love with comics in the 90’s, it was still a secret shame: something to be enjoyed with a flashlight, late at night, under comforters for fear that even our own family would cast judgment on us. No more. The geeks are letting their freak flags fly! Today’s youth proudly display superheroes on every inch of their personal real estate: from backpacks, to t-shirts, to bumper stickers. However, while the world has embraced “comic book culture” it has not embraced the comic books the culture is based on. More and more of the world’s most talented artists and creative storytellers are drawn to the medium of comic books; yet, some of the industry’s best material is being cancelled do to lack of sales. What we hope to accomplish with “Comic Exposure” is to provide a platform for longer in-depth discussions on graphic novels while at the same time providing a gateway into comic books for new readers. Most importantly we want to exercise thirty-plus years of closeted nerd-fueled conversations. Enjoy, interact, and be merry. Welcome to Comic Exposure!
