Comic books seem to have lost their glow since the early days when they first came out but, the reality is this is simple not true. Comics are more popular than ever today. The reasons people collect these comic books are as wide as the people who read and collect them.
However, here are a few things to keep in mind. First people who collected as children and still collecting and they are getting their own children reading and collecting the comic books too. This is a great way to bond with your teenager and tell them about your childhood.
Even if the child’s parents did not collect comic books the child or teenager who enjoys them is collecting them. With all of the popular Hollywood movies coming out based on comic books, people are buying the books just to see how the story line differs or is the same. Movies seem to generate interest in the comic books but more importantly for Hollywood, comic books keep people going to the movies.
Readers will always find things to read and comic books will continue to grow in popularity. It might be hard to get an accurate number as to how many people collect comics today but you can rest assured that if we average in the old collectors and new collectors with the occasional and frequent reader, that number is very high.
