Ever heard of 'Madam and Eve'? 'Calvin and Hobbes'? Or 'Asterix and Obelix'?

This wouldn't have anything to do with your website, would it?

Still, I love asterix and obelix and Tintin, and also the discworld graphic novels I own.

Thirding Asterix! I grew up with those books, re-reading them all the time, and they grew up with me - when I was six, most of it went right over my head, then, each time I went back to it, I understood another reference or a new joke (even now, I intend to re-read the whole collection next time I visit my parents; I'm sure there are jokes still to be discovered about politics in the 70s or whatever)
And I saw some of the Lucky Luke albums had been translated in English too - another institution in France, same writer, highly recommended!

It was comics that got me into reading in the first place from a very young age. I started out with the 'Beano' and still have, in my haphazard collection of old comics, my very first one from 1966. :D I also used to get 'Action' (before it was discontinued for being too violent) and '2000AD'. I was rather upset when the first 100 mint editions were accidentally thrown out in a clearance. :(
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

I assumed you'd been deleting links, Tony. 8)

No, not at all. I'm just noticing that Wrecks homepage button Image links to a site that sells comics. :)
