Welcome to Howie's World of Comics!

What better way to open a new blog than with the theme tune to the worlds best known and most watched comic book based TV show than Batman with Adam West!

There are a lot of blogs and sites about comics by other "fan boys" (and girls!) out there, but I wanted to write one of my own to share my hobby with others. It is my intention to focus on the comics, characters, stories and companies that I have come to enjoy over the years and will be a wee bit of a personal journey looking at both new and old US and British comics!

You are cordially invited to join me.

For those of you that are not familiar or out of touch with the hobby, most comics are now only available in specialist comic shops (mores the pity)  and some titles need to be "pre-ordered" in advance which is best done through the use of the Diamond Catalogue, a rather weighty monthly tome available from your local shop or mail order company:

Previews Cover-July 14 Back

For those of you in London I recommend 30th Century Comics in Putney, which stocks or can order the latest US comics and has an excellent run of back issues, but also has a substantial stock of old British comics in its basement.

Well worth a visit I assure you!
