This is the spot where I’m prompted to say, “This has been a long time in the making,” and, truthfully, it has been… However, if I’m completely honest (as I hope you’ll soon discover I will be), this very first post on the brand-spankin’ new TragicFanboy.com is the result of at least seven years of procrastination by Yours Truly. See, way back in the Dark Ages (2006), I first envisioned the concept of Tragic Fanboy, a blog through which I could share my love of Comics, Sci Fi, Movies and the Fandom associated therewith… and did absolutely nothing with it until now. I haven’t stopped reading, nor going to movies, etc., and I definitively haven’t stopped having opinions about them. So, with some not-so-subtle urging from the recipients of those opinions and the good folks at DZI: The Voice giving me the opportunity to write in the last couple of years, here we are… again!
In writing this, it occurs to me that my initial description is still the best: “I’ve been reading comic books a looooonnnnnnggggggg time now. I’ve witnessed some of the very best that the medium can achieve and suffered the worst drivel imaginable. Still, I run to the store every Wednesday and dive in headfirst. I’ve learned that I like to share the experience: the good, the bad and the ugly. It’s made me a TRAGIC FANBOY.” So, let me thank you from across the Interwebs for entertaining my random thoughts and musings. I promise to provide them on more than a once-every-seven-year basis going forward. You may hold me to it! Thanks, again!
