Tommy Hancock (tommyhancock) | 947 comments I love comics. I actually learned how to read at age three so that I could read an X-Men comic all by myself(what a bigboy I was!). I have tons of friend who read comics as well.

I also love novels. What I didn't know until recently is that I read YA novels almost exclusively(mainly because I didn't know YA was a thing). I have ton of friends who read YA novels as well.

What I find odd is how rarely any one of my friends sleep in both camps. Especially when there are so many great comics that, by definition, are YA. Off the top of my head: Spider-Man, Buffy, some X-Men books, Teen Titans, the list goes on.

I'm curious, is an intersecting of these two fandoms really so rare? Do any of you fellow members love comics as much as much as I do? Do you have any comic recommendations for YA readers? Do you want comic recommendations for YA readers? If so, you're in the right place.

Tommy Hancock (tommyhancock) | 947 comments I'll start off with a bit of shameless self promotion and link Death of a Hero, the first story I ever got published. It's the story of a girl dealing with loss. here's a link: http://bit.ly/TF8WuW
