About healed1337

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 - www.healed1337.blogspot.com 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.

Before we begin, this is one of the two remaining Bond movie’s I’ve never seen before. I’I previously watched the first half or so (up to the skiing action scene) years ago on TV, and had virtually no memory of … Continue reading

007 – the Roger Moore Years 4: Moonraker

The general opinion of Roger Moore’s fourth outing as James Bond is quite mixed. Either you hate it, or you find it very entertaining despite its … oddities. There doesn’t seem to be too many people in-between those vastly different … Continue reading
