General Update

As much as I’d love to write a review for this week’s excellent Journey Into Mystery this, I won’t have the time as more pressing matters are at hand. So instead, here’s a quick update on things.

As I’ve said several times before, I recently got back into fiction writing. Just a few days ago, I finished the second draft of the second story that I wrote in January, and it’s the longest thing I’ve ever written. As of now I’m fairly happy with it, even if it’s not ready to send into any publishers or agents yet. It’s ready for beta readers, but I’m only entrusting that to people I personally know. As for what this story, and this series, is about … I’m not ready to talk about that to the public yet. All I’ll say is that the one I just finished is a mix between fantasy and historical fiction.

I don’t know if I’ve talked about this on the blog before, but I generally prefer B-list and C-list characters over A-listers, if only because writers generally have more freedom for lasting character development with them. Some of these preferred B-listers are legacy characters of sorts. Since I’m taking at least a month off of fiction writing to refresh myself, I’m thinking of making September Legacy Character month, where each weekend I’ll post about a legacy character I prefer over the original for one reason or another.

I’m also strongly considering participating in this year’s National Novel Writing Month. If I do, I’ll probably post about some of my experiences there instead of full comic reviews. I’ll still be doing my first impression posts at the least, but it would be fun to do something different for a month. Please let me know what you think of this idea.

And at last, I’m running out of room for my comic/game collecting, so I’m currently sifting through a bunch of stuff I no longer want. There will likely be a video post about the stuff I’m selling in the next few days.

I am a relatively new comic book fan writing this blog for other new comic book fans and/or people who are interested in comics but don't know where to start. I've always been interested in writing, to the point where I have a college Creative Writing Certificate and I'm currently a year 2 Journalism student. I also have another blog where I mostly make fun of bad movies - As for how I got into comics, I've always had a passing interest in superheroes: most notably Batman, Spider-man and the X-Men. Until February of 2011 (I think,) my only experience with any of these franchises came from the movies and video games. Shortly after I bought Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 however, I decided to check out X-23, Wolverine's female clone. I ended up reading her Innocence Lost origin story and enjoyed it. From there, I started reading various X-Men comics and it quickly exploded into my newest hobby. My other interests/hobbies include video games, movies, music, playing sports, my dogs and weird news.
