most everyone knows me as the crazy guy who overposts in Mallory's. but in their wisdom the ptb have decided to give me some responsibility. and it happens to be the board advocating my favorite hobby.

I started reading comics sometime in the mid 70's. the earliest that I can remember buying would be DC Comic's Freedom Fighters, which came out in April of 1976. making me about to turn eight years old, third grade. I am sure I read them before that, but my collecting them started then.

I bought my comics at the local convenience store, Korner Kupboard. they got mostly DC Comics, with a handful of Marvel titles.

from DC : Justice League of America, Adventure, Action, Detective, Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Batman, Freedom Fighters, Sgt. Rock, Weird Western Tales, House of Mystery, House of Secrets, Brave and the Bold, DC Comics Present, Teen Titans- and many more.

from Marvel : Avengers, Power Man and Iron Fist, Marvel Two In One, Invaders and others.

so I missed out on Spider Man, Captain America, Hulk, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Daredevil among others.

up the road, a bit was Jennings Supermarket. there I could buy the Marvel titles. but less frequently for me. and I enjoyed what I was reading.

I also bought the Archie Digests featuring the Red Circle heroes. still a huge fan of that line.

I continued collecting after graduation and being single. and when I married, Julie endorsed my comics habit.

I buy much less nowadays. tending to haunt Half Price for cheap graphic novels and back issues. I think I may have around ten titles on my pull list.

I love the Golden Age heroes (WWII) and love obscure heroes. and I love the 70's comics. having gone back and buying the Invaders collections, the Omega the Unknown collection, an almost complete run of Nova and a partial run of SSoSV.

I tend to favor team books, more heroes for the bucks. I love Steve Ditko. and I am mostly singular here in my love for him. I love Grant Morrison.

I am deeply disappointed in DC's new 52. and tend to think comics are too dark and violent nowadays. I believe that overall, Marvel is publishing better books as a whole.

I love talking about comics. be it historical or recent. I've read most everything out there nowadays, thanks to our great public library system in this county.

so let me know what you like. what you would like to see. what you dislike. and I love the cartoons based on comics. I grew up watching Super Friends. Saturday morning cartoons and sugar cereal for the win!

I do watch a lot of the comic book movies, but not all of them.

I will try to get some cartoon postings up.

meanwhile feel free to read my reviews in hopes I might turn you on to some comics you may have not tried before.

if there is some desire for it, we could try a group read? let me know.

thank you for your time - null

It seems like when comics like DC or Marvel try to be too deep or dark, they fail. Those types of comics should be fun... or feature the Man-Thing and the High Evolutionary.... preferably in the same comic...and the Comet!
