I just had an epiphany last night, I love comics, I have tons of comics, have a wall of trade paperbacks, hardcovers, and various art books. I have original art hanging on my walls, a tattoo of a comic character’s logo emblazoned on my shoulder, yet I rarely talk about comics in real life. Even when I talk about movies, I’ll rarely mention “how close to the comic” the movie is.I’m not sure why. I don’t really have any “comic friends”, people whom I hang around with just because we share that love of comics, and other than Wednesday’s, I don’t obsess over getting to a comic store.
My wife of course knows my deep, abiding love of all things four colour, when we go on vacations, I often employ my mysterious “comic book sense” to find a comic store (I’m rarely wrong. I can go into a city, and within two blocks predict where the comic store will be.).
That’s one of the reasons I decided on the new theme for this site. That and the fact that I’m going to start posting my “Chronicology” comic strips early next month (right as soon as my teaching job ends).
There ya go though, if you’ve come here from TSN.ca, or one of the other non-comic links that live out there, then you now know. I love comics.
