Back in the good old days, I read comic books. Please note. READ
comics. Not Collect. I'm one of the people that enjoys just reading 'em, and swapping them with other folks. That "put it in mylar, and attempt to sell it 30 years from now" deal is sort of silly. (also, sort of futile... the comic speculation market has really had the bottom fall out of it. Sorry, if you were holding onto that copy of "Spawn meets The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", and you don't like spawn, or the turtles... you're out of luck. I mock thee. Mock! Serves you right, silly! Next time get something you like!) What's more, the comics I enjoyed are the really whitebread ones... Superman, Spidey, Fantastic four, Justice League, more recently Astro City and Tom Strong... vengeance comics were right out, for the most part. However....I have to admit a shred of affection for a hero who will - without skipping a beat - empty eleven shots from a .357 magnum at point blank range --- into a stubborn doorknob.
oh, I found deadjournal
and I created an alias Scottobear
there too... just because. I'll probably never ever use it.
I *love* the fact that I can add entries to the past now, and it won't bubble to the front of folk's friend's pages... I updated 5/27/01, and it's nice placed there, where it belongs.
