My husband's not a huge comics fan but will read specific ones from time 
to time (like Dan Dare and the odd graphic novel). He's listened to me 
ramble on about the LNH and has occasionally suggested ideas to help me 
work out where to go next in the story, but he's never really read any 
of the stories (although I've forced him to listen to me talking about 
them quite a lot). He likes to help with the plotting (such as it is).
