Leave your highfalutin comics and prose at the door. If it can be used as a doorstop, we ain’t talking ’bout it here.
We started out as the Shallow Comics Readers club on GoodReads – a bunch of puerile comics junkies who believe in:
Capes and tights over realism and believability
Hilarious escapism over maudlin emo introspection
Ripping into bad books over fawning over “must reads”
Sure Maus, Watchmen and The Sandman have big ideas. We don’t care. Comics cannot have high concepts, extensive expositional dialogue, and characters who just talk. We prefer heroes who use their fists (or power beams) to do the talking for them.
