Admit it: You’ve always had a nagging suspicion that you’ve been doing this “comic fan” thing all wrong, haven’t you? Well, now iFanboy’s Ryan Haupt is here to… most likely confirm that suspicion, to be honest, with his 10 Commandments of Comic Fandom:
6. Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s stack
We all wish we could have reading libraries like our heroes Conor Kilpatrick, Jeff Reid, or Pat Loika. But in reality we probably can’t. Either we’re transient perpetual students, mom’s basement only has so much room, or the flood of 2009 destroyed the majority of our collection. At the end of the day, we should appreciate the comics we have, buy (within reason) what we want, and enjoy the spoils of our friends free from jealously.
According to Haupt’s list, I break a full half of the commandments without fear on a regular basis. I am a disaster as a comic fan, apparently.
