►►►►► COMICS COMICS and MORE COMICS ◄◄◄◄◄
Hey all! New poster here. I seem to be spending a lot of
money time on comic-y stuff lately, so I figured I'd hunt up some comic comms. As per the user info suggestions, Some Stuff About Me & Comics:
My favorite comic book character is Deadpool, hands down. Why? It would probably take me hours of fangirlish squeeing to go into all the reasons, but, in brief:
a) he's a serious badass, fighting-skills-wise;
b) he's got an interesting but linear (and thus not hard to follow or retconned, for the most part) backstory, which is sufficiently dark and crazy to evince emotions in the reader; and
c) he. is. HILARIOUS. In a very black humorish kind of way, which appeals to me.
That said, I am fairly equal-opportunity when it comes to comics - i.e. I love them all, generally. Consistent fan of Cable and Deadpool, X-Men, Superman, Batman, Spider-man, Iron Man, V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Neil Gaiman's Sandman, etc. Also a fan of the Runaways series so far.
My dad got me into comics inadvertently (though he really never reads them) by being a fan of the old adventure-y shows (Lone Ranger, Green Hornet) and movies (he's a big Superman fan and loves Indiana Jones). I used to watch those with him. Then I watched a lot of the cartoons (Batman animated series, X-Men, etc.). Then I just started picking comics up here and there and am now much poorer for it (money-wise, that is). Hurrah!
Current favorite comic book movie is Iron Man because it was FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC. Also a fan of the X-Men and Spider-man trilogies.
And now, to The Sharing of Things:
1. Due to an offhand suggestion of my boyfriend the other day, I've just started a new journal: ask_deadpool:
Got a question or need advice about life, the universe, or everything? Go ask Deadpool, and he will respond! Possibly not in the way you'd like, but hey, that's the way we roll the dice around here!
2. I Make Icons. Some of them even have comic book folks in them. Check out theiconolatrist for some Deadpool, Wolverine, and Spider-man stuff. I also take requests.
3. I write fanfiction. Or, you know, at least ONE fanfiction. About Deadpool. Read it here.
4. I also talk about comics sometimes. Whee!
And...that's all, folks.
