Comic books evolve to tell our stories

I have been a comic book nerd my entire life. 

Don’t believe me? Ask my wife. When we first moved in together, I insisted that I hang all of my superhero action figures on the wall. They were (of course) still in their original packaging and I thought it would look amazing.

I was wrong. Thankfully, now I only have a few of my slabbed, graded comic books hanging on a wall. It looks much better and is usually a conversation piece when we have company.

I grew up in the ’70s dutifully reading Spiderman, Batman, Marvel Team-Up, the Fantastic Four and more. And it’s funny that I never questioned the race of my favorite heroes nor their sexual preferences that is, until I saw the cover of issue 153 of Captain America and The Falcon.
