Doesn’t it feel like a lifetime since I last graced my own column?
For me it’s been too long, I haven’t taken this long of a break since I started writing back in 2014. What with Christmas and working, it’s taken a toll on my free time and even my motivation. I decided in 2018 I would pull my finger out, and start putting fingers to keys and get back to what I’ve loved doing for the past 4 years.
2017 was the year I got lazy, the year I thought I didn’t need to continue to expand on my knowledge, the year I half-heartedly cared about the comic community, the year I shied away from big topics. Ask me what’s going on in the comic industry right now and I’ll not have an answer for you. I’ve relied on what I already know, and have been totally clueless about everything else that’s been happening.
I love that my YouTube channel (Two Girls) keeps me current with some pop culture, and the latest news that’s happening with comic book movies. Yet, I have completely neglected the industry where the source material stems from.
Well no more . . . 2018 I’m going to read more, write more, and express more!
Starting next week I will be delving into the women of Marvel & DC, going through the characters that grace the pages of Marvel & DC Comics, starting from the golden age of comics and all the way up to the modern era. I want to explore the impact of these characters on readers, the people that created them and how women characters have evolved through time.
Every two weeks I will have a new issue of The Femme Wonder out showcasing yet another woman who has impacted the comics and geek-culture industry.
Until Next Time . . .
Peace, Love & Peanut Butter!
