The Adventure of a Lifetime Awaits You
Mar 15, 2019
Last week I went to Metropolis. This week I’m going to Gotham City. And next week, I might set off on a trip to Wakanda.
The best part? Travelling to these places is a breeeeeze!
Of course, I didn’t actually go anywhere, but with a quick trip to my local comic book shop, I can instantly travel to any of these fantastic and far away destinations.
When you open the pages of a comic book, you get the adventure of a lifetime! You’re transported to a new land and encouraged to immerse yourself in the story, explore your new environment, and engage with the people and places around you. You can visit new worlds, discover new life… you know, really take in the experience!
Your adventures won’t be easy. You’ll be tasked with fighting for justice, discovering the unknown, navigating drama, dealing with relationship dynamics, handling conflict, and even working as part of a team. You’ll experience triumph and loss, truth and deceit, love and hate, vengeance and forgiveness—so many highs and lows!
In fact, think of your local comic book shop as your own personal travel agent!
As the proprietors of their stores, comic shop owners and their staff are extremely well-versed in the various lands and universes that fill the pages of comic books. They’re more than willing to be your booking agents, give you advice, and help you find an adventure that’s perfect for you.
Let the staff at your comic book shop know what kind of adventures you like and where you’ve traveled to lately and they can make suggestions on where to go next. Or, if you want to experience something totally different, they can send you on a fantastic new journey, and you may fall in love with an all-new world in the process!
