comic books and me

Remember the comic books that accompanied us ages ago when we were still a kid?
*No?? Sad Case Betul.. I shall mourn for you for 5 Seconds.

Those like Doraemon, Dragon Ball or maybe Shin Chan.

All these years, i've spent hundreds renting loads of comic books back home. I still remember i'll sneak out of my house during primary school days and go to the nearest comic book shop bringing like 10-30 comic books at a time.

Then i will lock myself up in my room reading comic books whole day long.

Forgetting the time and enjoying myself in my own little world. It was quite a memory for me. I'll share the comic books with my younger brother, letting him read.

He was still very young at that time, the most he can do was just looking at the drawings smiling big big as though as he understand the storyline.

Years pass, we grew up and eventually the range of comic books i read went broader, some very wordy with lots of theories, some quite complicated. My brother, influenced by me, still read every single comic book i bring back after school.
*erm, not every single one though..

But then, he already learned to choose on what comic to read, some comics such as Detective Conan which have many words in it bored him to the max and he just skipped it.

and till recently, i barely go and rent comics already. My brother who cant stand it came up to me and asked something funny.

brother : if i go rent some comics that you rent/read before, will you read?

of course i will!!I love them!! HAHA

and so, these few weeks, i have tons of old comics to re-read again and i find it quite interesting. I kind of remember how did i started with comics, and what happen somewhere somehow that is related to comic books.

Some of the comics that i still follow closely are Naruto, Bleach, OnePiece and etc. There're many comics that i'm currently following actually but all the comics i read are in chinese, i do not know some of their English titles. I Love Comics.

I got a book shelf fills with comics. Whole set of Dragonball, Slamdunk, Shota no Sushi, Shota no Sushi (National Level Competition), Kindaichi (lost a few adi T_T), Video Girl Ai, IS', and some not so mainstream comics. All in Chinese. That's how I learn to read Chinese I think.
