Well I said that I will be using this day for fandoms of all sorts. I am all over the place as far as what I geek over. My love of comics all started with xmen. I am fond of damaged heroes. It allows for hope that anyone can be a hero, not just the perfect folk.
I grew up with comic books, and the television bringing them to life. Not that I ever needed it, the books and their amazing stories were more than enough for my fertile imagination. And I was not alone.
I like to think that people like Stan Lee are where geek culture started. I am so grateful to have been able to see the stories, and I hope to see many more.
I have been letting this slide slightly. Too much this month to keep up on my pursuit to update my favorite webcomics… Current I am up to date on Questionable Content, Goblins, and Geekasaurus. I am working on getting up to date on Looking for group. So many great webcomics and I will eventually get back to having a list worth reading.
Ok… Now for the other part of webcomic Wednesday. Fandoms… I am all over the place in my fandoms. Naming the different ones that I enjoy would take forever. I have been trying recently to convince my teen daughter that being into kids stuff in a fandom way is okay. She is into monster high and was afraid that it was too childish. (Personally I love Cleo and Ghoulia.) So I present you a question… What is your favorite fandom and why?
So… In the past I have been awful about updating this blog. I am hoping that if I do a bit of a schedule it may help. So I decided to post my plan… Please be patient with me as I may still lapse.
Monday : poems. That will be the day when I share any poetry that I feel like sharing.
Tuesday : teasers. I have a children’s chapter book that I am working on currently, and Serena has her second book in her zombie apocalypse series. This is when I will be sharing teasers and updates on the work we are doing.
Wednesday : webcomics! This is going to be where I discuss webcomics and perhaps other fandoms.
Thursday : Reviews. Both tech and books. I am a geek who reads a lot. I really need to start doing a review segment on here.
Friday : writing helpers. This is where I will be talking about the technical difficulties that come with writing.
I am not scheduling weekends. And I may end up posting random other than the schedule… Cause life. You get it, I am quite sure. Also I may be less accurate to the schedule in November. I am doing the pad challenge and Serena is doing Nanowrimo. So I don’t know how much extra time for blogging I will have. But I will be posting. Just figure it will be less than I am hoping for.
Well webcomics are amazing comics that have been posted on the web. It really is that simple. Years ago I was following nearly two hundred separate comics. Then I lost access to a computer, and mobile phones were too hard to read on .
Some have ended. I am still sorting through my links. I am current on two… Working on a third.
These are the ones I am up to date on. I am going to try to post about this topic every Wednesday.
I am updating :
Go check them out and tell me what you think . I hope that we can discuss the merits of the various webcomics and perhaps I can enlighten you as to some great comics, or be enlightened by you.
Ok, I admit part of the delay was my addiction to webcomics. I have been without a computer for about five years. I can’t read them on my phone. So I am trying to catch up with my favorite ones. Some I am finding no longer update (girlswithslingshots being one). Some are harder to update than others. I will attempt to do a post in the near future about my favorite webcomics and why. Just let me get caught up first.
I, so far have done a poem for each of the prompts that were given for Inktober. Then the prompt Angular came up yesterday. Weak…. Was late due to webcomics. Angular because I see nothing poetic in that. I’m sorry but I don’t see myself ever writing poems about angular. So I chose a different prompt. The prompt for the second one is cry.
I will be doing today’s inktober post in a little bit. I have the art done, and I have the writing area ready. I just need to eat something and come back to the writing.
