There’s a lot of reasons I enjoy reading comics: the fight of good v. evil, the creative collaboration between art and literature, the willingness to experiment in storytelling. I particularly love when comic creators choose to use their stories to encourage readers to expand their understanding of the world around them, which Marvel will be doing this fall with the STEAM Variants. If you’re a comic fan, I particularly recommend checking out the titles listed below. -TC
