#fourcomics: Writer Jim Zub Unleashes A Wave Of Comics Nostalgia With Twitter Hashtag
Skullkickers and Wayward writer Jim Zub launched a simple hashtag late on Wednesday that turned the comics Twittersphere into a museum of childhood memories, with fans and creators sharing ‘#fourcomics‘ that influenced them growing up. With fans of varying ages and experiences sharing issues and series that shaped them as kids or that still influence them today, the hashtag quickly became one of the top trending topics of conversation on Twitter.
ComicsAlliance has collected some examples from comic writers, artists, and cartoonists, but anyone with a Twitter account can contribute their own four comics that shaped them by using the #fourcomics hashtag, and anyone can check out the hashtag to see what everyone is posting. Warning: You will be transplanted back to your earliest comic book memories and feel an irresistible urge to go digging through longboxes for your worn-out favorite comics, and you will get into ancient debates with your friends. Comics!
