I’m reading comic books again, for the first time in a long time. I’m a lapsed fan who has returned to the fold. I grew up in the 80s and 90s. As a kid I loved Spider-Man and Superman and Spawn. I collected Grant Morrison’s JLA and Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon in high school. When I hit university, I stopped. Partly because I didn’t have the money, but more because I didn’t have the time to devote to comics.

Nearly fifteen years later, I’ve started collecting again – visiting my local comic shop once a week, tracking down back issues in antique stores, and bidding on hard-to-find comics on eBay.

Ultimately, I think it was the Golden Age of Superheroes that brought me back to the comic shop. The stories being told on the big and small screens were good enough that they made me wonder what I was missing, and they made me long for the pastime of my youth. Maybe I’m unique, but I suspect I’m not.

This is a blog about comic books and superheroes. I hope you like it.

  1. Just started following the blog today. Mainly because I find myself nodding to most everything you say as both someone around the same age, but of the same speculative views. I just read every single post on the site and smiled to myself because so many things you’ve spec’ed I already was collecting or had hunches about and at the very least it gave me justification (as if I needed it, they’re comics after all and they’re a part of who we are as fans). So thank you from a new follower, fan and like-minded peer. Bravo, keep the blogs coming !
