Well, well. A little more than six years ago, I came searching for a place to talk comics with the release of Identity Crisis #7, where I learned that Crazy Sue Dibny was smart and crazy enough to outwit the Justice League.
I found Newsarama at that time, registered, minded my own business, for the most part. And since I loathe change, I never left. I would peek at Outhouse after "the split," but as I am a creature of habit, I never migrated over.
But now, on a day where a founding member of the Fantastic Four meets their doom, I wanted to talk comics. And I was rejected for the sixth day in a row by the Newsarama boards being down.
Look. I believe in loyalty. I do. But come on. A classic character goes down for the count, and I can't even log on to a message board at a comics website?
That's...man, sometimes you just gotta recognize when it's time to move on.
So. The Outhouse. I recognize some of the names, many of them. (Punch! Young man, what are you, 20-plus now?) I don't read comics nearly as much, but still enjoy good conversations about them when I have the time.
Glad to be here, because history repeats itself. On a day when comics changes in tone, I reach out to people like me. So if you remember me, say hi!
