I'll admit to being someone who used to be quite involved in the world of comics at one time ..... a long, long time ago. I can't pinpoint exactly
what happened. I can't put my finger on exactly why I simply stopped enjoying comics. I just did.
Don't get me wrong. I still "loved" comics. It's a wonderful medium. A simply amazing form of expression. It's just that I simply stopped
"enjoying" them and, perhaps, the business surrounding them. About a year ago, however, my interest in comic books -- especially "indie" books --
was rekindled through my participation in the first "on-line" comic book convention
-- Face Book Comic Con. It was started by legendary comic book artist, Mike Nasser ( aka Netzer) and it has grown considerably.
One needs to be a Face Book member to join this group but I have found it worth it as I have connected and, often, I have made many reconnection's
with the Comic Creators. Face Book Comic Con boasts quite an active roster of Comic Creators from artists, writers and publishers -- independent as
well mainstream. With numerous panels and on-line interviews, my interest in comics has been heartily piqued through this surprisingly intimate
interaction with some very talented individuals.
This might be worth checking out.
