THE ACTIVITY #7
What did the

I have been reading comics on and off for over 30 years now. The one thing that really remaind consistant about the type of comics I read/collected was that they were all basically Super Hero books. I did enjoy some of the Spooky/Mystery and a few War/Military comics.
When I got back into comic reading/collecting a few years ago I decided that I would try out different comics along with my normal Super Hero books.
The Activity is one of those non Super Hero books that I am so glad I gave a chance to. So far out of 7 solid issues of this book, I have only really been not blown away by one issue, every other issue has been Great!
I work in a capacity that helps our brave men and women ni the US armed services, so this book really resinates with me. Even with that being said, I would recommend this book to anyone else that is looking for something other then your typical Super Hero book.
Each issue has your intregue, your human realism that makes you feel like you can meet these characters in real life so to speak. I like that in a book. The stories presented in this book, are taken from real life experiences of people who lived them, I’m sure things have been changed or altered to be placed into context of this book, but you can feel the real life in here.
This is my third or fourth review of an Activity issue. I do not get anything in trying to push this book to anyone, but I strongly believe in this book and would hope that you will give it a try.
On a side note on some previous reviews, this is the first issue that has a continuation storyline. Every other story has really been self contained to a single issue. That is neither a good or bad thing, just making a note of it in this review. So if this is the first issuue you ever pick up, realize that you have not really missed any type of back story that you need to be made aware of.
Any writters or artists associated with this book, please come down to the Richmond, VA area during one of the smaller comic conventions that are here, I would love to get one of my issues signed by you guys! Keep up the great work on this book.
