How do you guys read comics?

I have been starting to get into comics and graphic novels, and I have a question to comic book fans. Do you guys read the comic and just enjoy the art, or do you actually imagine whats going on in the book as you look at the art like you would in a novel? I know this probaly seems a bit silly but its been peaking my curiosity latley.

I look at the art and soak it in, then I read the dialog.

Its funny that i've never thought about how i read a comic. I guess i read them like novels though i enjoy the illustrations i focus more on the dialog.

Re: How do you guys read comics?

As a lifelong comic book fan, I enjoy reading comics, trade paperbacks and graphic novels in a manner equivalent to viewing a films. As such, I develop the world of the story within my head using every human sensory ability at my disposal. Stories such as Alan Moore's Watchmen or Superman: Red Son continue to fascinate me as a fan due to complexities of settings and characters as well as the aforementioned sensory experiences they elicit.
