You will have to be supportive and nod your head in agreement as they dissect why the film got it so wrong. I have found several graphic novels and independent trades that are great reads.
If you happen to be one of those girlfriends or wives dragged to the comic bookstore, look around and browse some of the titles.
They often like to wear comic t-shirts such as "Fantastic four" "hulk" "Spiderman" and "Doctor who".
They love comics and you mostly always see them reading one.
Mostly all of them own over a hundred comic books..just cant get enough of them.
