    Hello everyone, I remember having an account here years ago, but I guess it disappeared? I chose the nickname Infectious Lass because I am a big Legion fan and am excited to talk about the reboot. I also am following Hickman's X-Men relaunch and enjoy what I have seen so far.

    Hello. My name is Gilbert Garcia. I've been a comic book reader from my teenage years onward, with the "Batman Adventures" and Elseworlds as my gateway. I don't buy as much as I used to, but have been buying more through Comixology and keep a small amount of weekly comics from my LCBS. I made a account here a few years ago, and am trying to be more social online with my hobbies.
    My main comic interests are DC comics history, mainly the Golden Age from being a reader of Geoff Johns' JSA series, and the Sword and Sorcery genre, which includes Conan the Barbarian, Red Sonja, and Mike Grell's Warlord. Other comic interests are the JLI era, Spiral from the X-Men books, and Mark Russell books.

    Hi all,

    I just discovered this forum and thought I'd jump in. I've been a fairly casual comic reader. I've mostly been into the movies, tv adaptations and other things. I'm trying to cut down on screen time though so I'm thinking of getting more into comics.

    I want to get more into the backstories on the shows I've liked. Definitely want to learn more about the source material for Legion.

    I'm also down for talking video games, sports, whatever else.

    Hi, my name is Ashley. I'm a big fan of film, TV, games and books. In my spare time I share my passion for film through my Youtube channel with reviews on the latest cinema releases and old, as well as just general movie talk.
    Comics is something I plan on getting into big time, its a medium that I've never really got into until recently, with my collection already growing. I look forward to chatting/discussing with like-minded people.

    Well I am staying up late watching both amazing spidermans. I did not like the idea that peters parents were behind his spider powers or whatever they dd. so I never really gave them a shot. I have fond memories of CBR chat room. Thats how far back I go. Is this place still owned by .. damn was it Jonah? I used to chat with him and I went to two comic con dinners with him.
    I used to be Big Jim Mctagert Boss of the soutside. It was fun. I would come in to work at five in the morning to download message traffic for my command and there was two hours to play on the internet so I ended up with friends in New Zealand.
    So I sold all my comics. I had never sold a comic before so I had the ones from my childhood and I am fifty eight now so somebody made some money off me. I really had too much stuff to keep. My grandfathers garage was going to be rented and five hundred bucks is five hundred bucks.

    I remember CEI U , Falcoria, FLy on the wall. gosh, i could just start listing names Its almost like they were real people that I knew.
    I dont buy anymore. every once in awhile I will go into a barnes and Nobles and read a few TPB s
    I live in San Diego and another CBR er was named Silver Spider, He lived in San Diego with his fanily and they all were silver this or silver that. I got to visit one time and he gave me a marijuana plant. I wish I had a green thumb but the poor thing died. Now its legal YAY!
    RIght now I am retired and looking for friends. Maybe someone in my age group to go see Marvel movies in three dee when they come out.
    wow so gwen stacy knew Peter was Spiderman? I actually read the comics while peter was dating gwen before the death comic which I read live on the montly experience of comics.
    To confess I was able to pretend I was the hulk or iron man way into my adulthood. I cant say when I lost it but Jackie Paper no longer visits Puff in my case.
    I fanasize now about being a father and other missed opportunities.
    The old montly comics were great fantasy ammunition with me acting out all the cliffhangers how I would want the story to turn out.
    I guess I dont have adolescent power fantasies anymore. I still have affection for the material, I just cant pretend I am Spiderman. Man wasnt that opening for Capt Marvel a great send off for Stan Lee? the one for Endgame was a little too much.
    My Nephew went to see Capt Marvel with me and we are kind of starting a thing where he goes to the marvel movies with me but he is starting Medical School now in Chicago so I told him I will pretend he is sitting next to me.
    I tell you. I was so ready to not like the third Hellboy film but it worked from the comics! It was fun seeing all these story lines getting their time on screen. I loved the tpb where Hellboy diedl I caught that at a Barnes And Nobles.
    I went thru a phase when I was downloading conmics off torrent sites and I built this amazing external harddrive with a life time supply of comics and I read like a fiend but the hard drive went bad. All glory is fleeting. Then Cox cable got on me for downloading so I had to quit.
    Well if anyone remembers me from the old days give a shout out. Any body want to say anything I would like that.
    Well its about time to switch moives I will let you all go

    Hey everybody, I'm Cole aka thinkman, longtime reader first time poster.

    I'm pretty much into every form of media under the sun and I've been a comics reader since grade school. For the last few years I've been self teaching myself to make comics from the writers side, and decided to take the next big step: networking. What better than one of the biggest comic forums on the internet! My big inspirations are Grant Morrison and Dwayne Mcduffie, but my three biggest passions that influence my art the most outside of comics are outsider/indie media, modern world history, and obscure/ non mainstream religions/beliefs. If you'd like to check out some of my writing samples I have a thread on my first finished script that should go live soon once mods approve, and if you can't wait for that or would rather read short stories or other forms of writing than a comics script, feel free to shoot me a message, I'm very online and can get back to you ASAP. I look forward to chatting with y'all and hopefully getting into some awesome discussions fairly soon.
