Comments Off on A Comic Book A Day! Day 0 – The Origin! (reprint)
I am a comedian, a husband (“The Husband” at my wife’s blog), a father and for the last 30 years or so an avid comic book lover (which is why the pages are often stuck together).
I’m also the Editor-In-Chief of EvilNewsDaily.com (AKA The Nefarious Mustache, don’t tell anyone). I’ve assembled an awesome team of funny, interesting and weird geekazoids who will be writing about the things they love.
Sure comic books reign supreme, but we’ll also be talking about movies, video games, literature, science, cars and the list goes on and on till the break of dawn. I hope you f-ing love this site and the writers on it as my as I do. If not? Fuck you.
You know, it might sound weird to the uninitiated, but right behind getting married and having a kid, the next biggest thing which actually made me feel like an adult was moving my entire comic book collection from my parent’s basement (thanks dudes!) to my apartment in the city.
I do read some indie comics, but I am an unadulterated lover of DC and Marvel, sometimes in that order and sometimes reversed.
I’ll also admit right up front that I am a sucker for big, universe spanning cross over events. I’m loving Avengers Vs, X-men and Crisis of Infinite Earths is one of my favorite series.
You might not like the idea of Before Watchmen, but I think it’s awesome!
While I love creators and artists (my modern favorites are Mike Mignola, Robert Kirkman, Brian K. Vaugh, Bendis and newly Jeff Lemire and Scott Synder and old school Kane, Siegel and Shuster, Stan Lee, Kirby, Steve Gerber), I really love the characters!
I want to find out what’s happening, has happened and will happen to the modern pantheon (which sometimes includes the ancient pantheon) of Gods, Monsters and Heros.
To satiate that curiosity, I’m going to break into my stache (I know it’s spelled wrong) each and every day (Days = Monday – Friday) and read and review 1 comic book. That’s right, A Comic-Book-A-Day!
First up on Monday: X-men #1 (1991)
I look forward to taking this awesome and sometimes not so awesome journey with you and always welcome your comments, love and even comic books suggestions!
Until Day 1, I remain…
Nerdy and proudy,
