Origin stories of San Luis Obispo comic readers

Let’s talk origin stories. In comics, the classic origin stories are back-story. The mythos behind a hero — or villain. Who caused the wrong they need to right? How did they get their powers or their awesome crime-fighting technology? Where did they get their cape, and does it need to be dry-cleaned?

But what about the reader? How did they get started on their journey to read? Questions over what made a reader pick up their first book, and what attracts them to what they’re reading now inspired me to go out and ask.

I was lucky enough to have Reid Cain, owner Dr. Cain’s Comics and Games in San Luis Obispo let me sit in for a couple of hours and interview some of his customers. Click on any picture to start the slideshow.
