Liefeld quit DC?

Sunday, August 19, 2012


Hi there. Remember me? No? I've been gone a long time? Yeah, you're right. I gave up updating the site a good while ago, because I was having a difficult time keeping up with, at the time, what was like three webcomics that updated every week AND this site. I had to put the Asylum on the ole back burner, and focus on the comics. But since then, a few, well, all of them except Captain Ahole have basically ended. So, with that said, I am going to start updating this site again with the occasional new webcomic review, maybe some interviews when I can get them, and news when there is any. Oh, and something new. NEW? That's always good, right? I hope so. So what is it?

Well, I recently, well, with the beginning of the DC comics New 52 initiative, started buying and reading comics again. Not to collect, but to just plain old read for the fun on it. I haven't read comic books in years, at least ten. But this new 52 was going to have a fresh start! I figured, wow, that means I can get in on the ground floor, and not have to know all of this back story, and all of these things that have happened to these characters in all of those years past. This was a godsend for me. I was always a DC guy(my brother is a Marvel dude, grrrr), and here was my ticket in! So yeah, I bought a bunch of the new number ones, and from there, got back into comics, even trying out some Image and Dark Horse stuff on the side. I'm back with full force, and loving it! Okay, that was enough explaining. The new thing will be some comic reviews! Not just webcomics, but comic books published by the big guys. Even some smaller independent stuff when I try em out. I dunno, just some part of me has always liked giving my opinion on this stuff(it's why I have this site, right?), so why not expand it a bit to include non digital only. Comics are comics!

Okay, there you have it. I'll be writing some short comic reviews, probably every week, letting you know what I think about the comics that I buy. I hope they can coexist peacefully on the site, and I hope that you enjoy my ramblings as much as I enjoy writing typing them out. Come back often!-Jack
