Instead of trying to escape through my comics

from Eminem – Legacy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Before hip hop music, Eminem was an avid fan of comics, e.g superhero comics (He remained one, as seen by his Robin costume in this video)

However, ever since Uncle Ronnie introduced Eminem to Hip Hop music, Eminem uses rap music as his form of escapism.

OR instead of hiding from his problems and comfort himself, he is rapping to face them, confront them becoming stronger and more confident.
