B_bFijAVEAE4vNL

Going into PAX East 2015 this year I purchased a 3-day pass so my scheduling was a bit more relaxed and I really had no plan for friday other than to walk aimlessly. Then I got talking to some dudes in the queue line with me and they mentioned they were going to run right to the Overwatch booth so I figured might as well go follow them there to Read the rest of this entry

My Superhero Identity For The NerdAndTheNoob Podcast

Hello everyone today i will be writing a superhero identity story. The guys comic book podcast “NerdAndTheNoob” (who you should go check out on twitch.tv every sunday night) shared a website http://superhero.namegeneratorfun.com/ where you put in your name and it generates a superhero name and story, and told us to write a story about our generated identity so here is mine:

 

“The Sensational Knight”

(Above is what my superhero identity  looks like) 

I was one of the leading Knights in the Legion of the 5th Empire during the middle ages where i swore to protect my people from the evils of the Black Magic a group of evil wizards from unkown lands. they arrived a few months back and started terrorizing the villagers so they created the Legion Of The 5th Empire to stop the Black Magic.

Why I Love Comic Books

comicbooks

 

I’ve been into comics since i was a little kid but i slowed down for quite some time. Recently I started getting back into them and i wanted to share my love for them as well as maybe persuade some of you to pick up this fun hobby.

Comic books have been around for a long time and have had huge impacts on modern life, entertainment, and literature. There are 3 types of comics: regular comics, trade paperbacks, and graphic novels. A comic book is a regular usually small book that is a part of a series usually in the range of $4. Trade paperbacks are more book like in size and contain a bunch of comic books in a series usually split into 2 volumes usually around $30+. Graphic novels are a lot like trades but they usually do not contain a series of comics. Instead they are single stories but with chapters and are a lot longer than regular comics. These can range from $15-$40+. My personal favorite are graphic novels or trades because i dont like going through the trouble of chasing down all the comics in a series to find out what happens next. There are also online comics but i dont like those because i like to have the physical book.

Now i love comics for many reasons. First I love the idea of superheros, it really makes your mind imagine what it would be like if we had real superheros. There arent only comics featuring superheros either, there are ones about soldiers in the military, regular people with hightened abilities, and a lot more. There are movies, toys, and video games to go along with the comic book characters so collecting and enjoyment is endless. Another reason is i HATE reading books. I just cant sit their and read a book consisting of hundreds of pages of just words after words after words with no pictures to look at in between. Comics on the other hand have slightly less words, and awesome exciting story, and tons of action displayed in the beautiful art on every page. This leads me to my next point; the art is amazing! If the cover catches my attention i will probably buy it thats just how i am. The art inside and out is awesome and some times gory to add to the realism (hence why they arent for kids its hard to find a children-friendly comic book). Even after i finish a comic i still enjoy the art and even re-read it from time to time.

Now there are many other things that make comics awesome but i just named a few basics. Now a lot of people seem to think comic books are dumb, childish, stupid, etc. but those are the people who have never read them! Dont be afraid to go to your comic book store and ask for some help finding a good place to stop. Happy reading!
