    I found out this news just a few days back, and I'm so excited to share it all with you.  I'm very proud to announce that I'll be writing an official preview of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, a game heading to the Nintendo Switch later this year!  I'm sure some of you know how this came to be, but I'll explain for those who know me just from this blog. As I've...

    When I first considered getting into the world of comic books, I knew there would be some challenges.  You can't expect everything to be smooth-sailing as soon as you set out into uncharted waters.  Sure, there would be things to learn, but I figured there couldn't be all that much to it.   Boy was I wrong about that one! I decided the first thing to do was find out what comics I...

      Great post! It's easy to forget how difficult it can be to enter into the hobby once you've been in it for a while. Personally I grew up with an uncle who gave me lots of comics and I because he was my only access to the hobby, I didnt worry about anything else (because I didnt know anything else existed). When I got back in during University, I started with the graphic novel section at a book store and slowly expanded from there. Learning I could get a catalogue (Previews) from a comic shop was a huge moment for me.
      I know you have already found the answers to most of your questions, but I'll leave this link here for others who might find you blog post: https://www.howtolovecomics.com/comic-book-glossary-of-terms/
      This link lists a lot of the terminology that gets thrown around and is super helpful. If you check out the sites they also have good articles about how to get into comics that I think is worth looking at for new readers. https://www.howtolovecomics.com/2019/01/02/start-reading-comics/

    At the beginning of 2019, I made a decision.  I was going to watch every single Marvel movie in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe.  That decision ended up fueling a brand-new passion for me, and kicking off an insanely awesome experience.  Before I go more into where I am today though, I have to go back to my childhood.  When I was growing up, I had some very brief interactions with...

      This is a great story! Thanks for sharing. This little community of comic book readers needs new members, so I'm always thrilled to see someone start getting into comics. I hope you've found a good comic shop and that they have been welcoming and supportive! (Many comic shops offer discounts if you set up a pull list with them, so I'd suggest asking about that if you haven't already. I know you didnt ask for suggestions, but: Based on what you've collected so far, I'd recommend trying Ultimate Spider-Man. Personally, some of my favourite comic series are Sandman, Alan Moore's run in Swamp Thing, Astro City, and Local by Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly. Enjoy digging into comics! I'll be looking forward to reading more blog posts as you go.
