people knew i read comics and didnt really care. i never worse comic shirts but people knew id read them. i get people are ashamed of stuff like that in high school due to the "acceptance" phase but when you honestly stop giving a crap about that its when things end up working for the best socially. its not the comics that affect your personality/image in high school, its how you let yourself be affected by what you assume other people judge you as.

nice read by kid d aka forbush man.

I like the message, but it really needs a light English/Grammar proof.

The English kept bothering me. Otherwise, good stuff: B

Explain, please.

I think he did a great job for a 15-year old. As his editor, I'm very proud of him.

I have to say I now go to the articles more often when I log on here. Keb's peeing in the Shower column, Starlords and now Forbush's articles are great reads. I can't wait for more, great job guys!

Great column. I don't see that many superhero t-shirts around the teens I know, though. Still, the article is spot on-comics are seen as a childish medium. That'll change years from now, when more teens discover comics(series like the Walking Dead and 30 Days of Night were favorites among some people that I knew in high school that weren't comic fans, but just nerds, in general).

I agree. There are TONS of great titles that teens could probably get into. I just don't think they're aimed/marketed at teens.

The Walking Dead would be a cool example. I like the fact that there is an 18+ mentality that goes with the "mature readers" fact because it really pushes the teens who watch shows like Entourage and (whatever violent shows HBO plays nowadays).

When I was in high school my favourite show was Oz. I would have loved a comic like 100 Bullets then (I still do today).

Also, most of the people my age in the comic shop, really just do heroclix and the occasional comic. They're not really into actual comics that much.
