Hello everyone. As I chat with fellow fans at conventions, every so often someone would tell me that I should write a blog. And I would look at them, smile and procastinate about it for the next month or so before I would forget about it.
But then, as happens quite frequently, I would be inspired by someone close to me to get it together and do something about it, so here goes my blog about one of my favourite hobbies, comics.
I’ve read comics since I can remember being able to read. And I love the way that they can transport me to a different world where everything is OK and you have no worries except how the story is going to turn out.
This header is my current reading pile. And to give you an idea of how catholic my reading tastes are, I am going to list all the comics in this picture and let you judge how much a fan I am. If you’re sitting comfortably, then I’ll begin.
Denis Gifford’s Space Aces
The Invisibles Countdown to the Millenium
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Parts 1 to 4

As you might be able to tell, I am fairly wide ranging in my comic tastes.
I am not going to update this blog every day, but I will try and feature bits and pieces of comics that I pick up on and try to pass on some of my knowledge.
As I get more adept at how to use this blogging site, it may take a while before the look of the site settles down to a standard format so bear with me until then!
