Hi, I just wanted to take this time to fill you in on something I shared on a message board on Facebook two years ago. I’m relatively new to the world of comics; two and a half years, to be precise. My love of comics came about from being frustrated by being new to North Carolina and having a very hard time finding friends. Yes, I do have Heather in my life and that is a miracle by itself, but as she told me, I need to find friends of my own. Not just her. That was very hard for me to do. So, as a big fan of the Big Bang Theory and seeing a lot of similarities of the characters to my own personal struggles, I’ve seen them refer to comics a lot and wanted to explore that avenue for myself. A little backstory about my learning disability: I can read books, but I cannot comprehend what I read five seconds ago. So, I have to re-read the same page over and over again and I get bored very quickly. For this reason, I gave up on reading “normal” books. Being a Christian and being told by church leaders and youth group leaders reading the bible is a major part of your walk with Christ is very discouraging when you cannot understand what you are reading. Especially when reading the bible is supposed to be about more than the words on the page, and more about your spiritual walk with Christ. This brings us to two years ago, when I just decided to explore what I’ve seen on Big Bang Theory by going to the comic book store. What a world God has opened up for me! I love it! It all started with reading everything I can about Charles Xavier, a character in the X-men that is in a wheelchair and he is a leader of the X-men and his disability does not stop him. With reading about him, I realized I can read faster and understand everything I read and retain it to present day. This has never happened to me before! About a year ago, I mentioned in passing “I wish there was a Bible that was written in a comic book format.” After that, I was researching on the internet and I came across a Bible called The Action Bible. Even though it’s not a word for word translation of the Bible, it covers the major stories of all the books of the Bible in comic book form that I can understand finally and retain what I’m reading. This is awesome for me!! Some may think I go a little overboard with my new found love for comics, and maybe I do, but to me, I look down at the boxes of comics that I’ve read and remember every story that is in everyone and it is a testimony of where I was to where I am now with the love of reading.

Never trust The Joker!!

Today I read the latest in the White Knight Comic!  I know for some meds and therapy can help people but for a person like The Joker, there is no good in him at all!!

I like this different storyline but EVERYONE needs to stand for what they did wrong, not just blame a sickness!!!

Walking NO!! Something new!!

This one took 2 reads for me and I’m not sure if I fully understand this newest comic from Robert Kirkman!!

Don’t get me wrong I liked this new storyline but it was hard to understand at first for me!  I’m sure it will get better as I read more…

I’m still here, its been awhile I’m sorry for that!!

Every time after New Years in the winter months I get down mostly depressed cause of the cold limits me but more then that I get in moods!!

In this time I’m in a car mood, I miss going to the Chicago Auto Show in February!  The Chicago Auto Show was a big deal for me and it helped pull me through the cold months.  I have not given up on comics!!

It took me awhile but I got through this one, it is good but not my favs with a lot of nonsense writing, it seems like DC Comics thinks we as readers forget what we read a few pages before, I can not stand comics like this!!  I am so glad I am done with this book!!!

It is the first time I read anything about The Signal, I liked it!!  A different kind of hero but he is what I picture a hero being in 2018, I want to see where The Signal ends up next..

I also read White Knight, in this one the 2 “Harley’s” wants their “Joker’s” out, drugs or no drugs!!

I hope everyone had a great CHRISTmas??

This the last week of 2017, I ponder on all the great comics that I read and posted on here with my thoughts on each one.  Before I started reading comics I could not tell anyone what I read (from “normal books”) but in this journey in comics I can read and understand what I just read so this journey is a big one for me and I am loving it!  Thank you Ryan H, Acme Comics and Ssalefish Comics for helping this new passion grow!!

I wanted to share all that because this Metal and Doomsday story has lit a fire for comics like I had 3 years ago reading Court Of Owls!!!

Today I read this and all I can say is GIVE ME MORE!!!

Bats, Sups & Wonder Woman are sent out to find Nth Metal in hopes to defeat Barbatos but finding said Metal has its own problems.  The more I read this storyline the more hungry I get to read more I love it!!!
