Remember why you liked comics in the first place?
Our Comics Empower Project continues!
This time, Vernon tells his story:
Hey there. My name is Vernon Newton. I’m 39.
I have never been a big comic reader but few years back I got into The Walking Dead and I didnt realise till about 18 months ago that they were based on comic books.
At the same time I created my Walking Dead Fan Base group. I have since started collecting all the comics. But due to my own problems with concentration when reading I’ve only got as far as issue 8 of 136, so I’ve got a little catching up to do.
But it has inspired me to learn more about the comics and the characters I’ve yet to meet and locations I’ve yet to see. I’m not so bothered about knowing some of the little twists in the story. They will still surprise me when I get there. Plus it helps with knowledge for my group.
So even just briefly reading them has expanded my mind and my interest in the Walking Dead which has helped me push my group to one of the biggest active groups on Facebook.
