Thank You Earth-2

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to thank the gang here at Earth-2.net for single handedly bringing me back to the world of comics.

I was a big fan of comics in the 90s (wasn't everybody) but my passion for them died out as I went through high school. For the longest time I have wanted to get back in to collecting, but doing so proved to be a very intimidating venture. The local comic shop guys aren't very friendly and asking them for advice is like asking them to cut off their big toe, and none of my friends are into comics so I really didn't have anyone to give me direction for a good starting point to get back into the hobby.

Enter Earth-2.net the show.

The "Is it Wednesday Yet" and "Previews" episodes have pointed me to some great books and have helped to reintroduce me to the industry as a whole. The information is presented in a very approachable (read non-fanboy) way, and the buy/flip/skip rating system is perfect in it's simplicity. It's really exciting to be back around these stories, and I feel like a kid again! It may seem like a strange thing to thank someone for, but thank you.

The non comic episodes are great as well, and I never miss an episode of Dread Media.

What a complete fan I am. :laugh:

Your check's in the mail SR!

Ha. Thanks for the kind words. I love it when someone gets back into comics and knowing I had a small part in that brings a metaphorical tear to a figurative eye.

Cheers Mate!

Thank you for the kind words, SinisterRabbit!

It's always warms my heart when I hear that Earth-2.net has brought someone into or back into comic books. I strive to keep the reviews as fanboy-free as possible, because I don't want to push away someone who might be coming to comics for the first time.

Welcome to the forums!

EDIT: How is it that Des and I typed nearly the same damn thing? :unsure:

We had the same notes again.

Edit: let me add that anyone with May as one of their favorite horror films is very cool in my books and will certainly enjoy an upcoming episode of Dread Media.

May is a great flick, and my DVD autographed by Angela Bettis is one of my most prized possessions.

This is the sound of Des going from thinking you're cool to hating you...

I want to have Angela Bettis' babies...only slightly less than I want to do so for Anna Faris. That is all.

Don't hate! :laugh:

I picked up her signature at the local "haunted hayride" attraction a few years ago. For such a small time show they are able to get some pretty cool special guests. Over the years I've picked up photos and sigs and from Kane Hodder, Doug Bradley, and even Gunnar Hansen...but I think I pissed him off because I pointed out to my brother that he was the guy from Mosquito...though it wasn't meant as an insult because my brother was a "fan" of that masterpiece.

Ms. Bettis, though, was my favorite pick up, I just wish I had my camera that night.

Ha! Pissing off Gunnar Hansen is not a good idea. Tobe Hooper is still afraid to be in a room with him 30 years after Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

For a Gunnar fan: make sure you check out the upcoming Icelandic film Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre!

Are you wearing the same clothes also. If so, I'm guessing there is something you need to come to terms with.
