Reboots

15 May

I enjoy reading comic books. Combining stories with beautiful pictures was always fascinating to me.

Growing up, thanks to my uncle’s influence, I read a few superhero comics like Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but I also fell in love with the Archie comics. The goofy situations of the perpetual high schoolers always amused me and I loved the friendship dynamic of the characters. For years, my uncle would get me a year’s worth of a subscription for the Archie comics. We recently stopped them only due to me not being able to spend as much time just lounging around and reading the comics lately.

I had mixed feelings on the reboot only due to nostalgia, but I was able to appreciate the new art style and the fact that the writers wanted to reach out to newer readers.

Volume One has the first six issues and I enjoyed the characters, finding many of them to be fairly true to the original series. There are a couple of characters (side characters, mind you) that I’m annoyed at for causing unnecessary strife, but I suppose it’s on par for high school conflicts. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t mind picking up the next volume at some point to see how the story continues.

Seeing how the comic book industry almost always has reboots going on — especially superhero series! — reminds me of when a novel itself goes through a rewrite. Novels go through several drafts, sometimes completely changing itself from the first draft to the last.

How many reboots and rewrites do your stories tend to go through until you deem them as finished?

    I love reading comics! I haven’t read Archie in years. Right now I’m reading the new Wonder Woman Rebirth comics, but maybe I’ll pick up Archie next!

      Archie is still one of my favorites — I have a large container and a drawer full of them! Wonder Woman Vol. One was another I had picked up. I’m looking forward to reading it! Thanks for commenting! 🙂
