You read that right, in May (I’m so late on this it’s not even funny any more) the amazing Stacey from Geeks and Lattes hosted a Comic Book swap on the Geek Girl Bloggers group! I don’t know how much I’ve talked about it yet, but I freaking love this group. They are so amazing and supportive and don’t make you feel dumb for asking questions about how they got their blog the way it is, it’s so amazing to be part of such an awesome group of ladies.
Anyway, this post was supposed to be up WEEKS ago, and I got distracted with creating a new site, and starting a new diet, and you know… life that I just kept putting it on the back burner. This is totally my bad, but I have to show you what I got!
February has been a hard month for me. After getting some pretty emotional news at the beginning of the month it’s thrown me into a terrible funk. I’ve been working through this news and have finally started feeling more like myself. The funk is finally on it’s way out of my system and as such it is time to catch up with you!
I’m so ready for the weekend! Getting my hair done and a writing day with my writing buddy planned. An excellent way to start the month. Next Saturday is my birthday, so I’m gearing up for that in the following days and trying to figure out exactly what I want to do.
Here are some things I’m thrilled about this week:Read More
Recently my friend the amazing LoudlySilent asked me to join their site Comics Recap as a contributor. I was bouncing off the walls I was so excited!
My first post on Comics Recap is now available. I hope that it makes you want to pick up this comic. I decided to write about the most recent comic I’ve read which was Giant Sized Little Marvel: A v X*, this adorable comic was written and drawn by Skottie Young and is amazing. Check out the review for more info.
After my post about Silk, I have had a little bit more invigoration to write more about comics. The problem is that I’m not that well versed. I only started collecting as recently as this year. As such I have been trying to jump in on any new series that strike me. Most of what I’ve been reading has been Marvel (because that’s where I tend to gravitate when I think of superheroes), but I’ve been wanting to expand that knowledge and try other series and other creators.
That all being said, I thought I’d throw it out to the universe and ask what comics you would recommend that I try next?
I was never really that into comics. I liked the idea of them and when my grandparents used to hand them out with their halloween candy I would always stash away a couple issues for myself to read later. Betty and Veronica I enjoyed, but the Batman ones were always entertaining to me too. Aside from that, I never really reached out for comics.
Once the Marvel Movies started leaking I found my interest in them to peak. I was curious about these characters I had been watching on the screen. I wanted to see how the character differed in the comic. However, trying to jump into Captain America or Iron Man was daunting. So in the past year (primarily the past few months) I’ve been searching for a series that is just starting or at least a more recent retelling of the stories.
All that being said, I’ve found some comics that I’ve become completely addicted to.
