The Blogging Adventures Resume Once More
In my attempts to revive this blog, I’ve always been in a state of block. I think it’s because the Geek Who Landed is such an old identity for me but people still know it. People still oddly dig it, and the idea behind it still stands. The truth of the Geek Who Landed is feeling like an outsider. Feeling a bit like an alien, you don’t fit in anywhere. That’s a lot of how I’ve felt for most of my life. Even in my early 30’s I’ve always been this guy who while around has never really fit into any circle. At times I feel like I just came from another planet and here I am, I’m here, how’s it going? As comics came into my life, that’s when I felt less like an alien, I felt like a human being. Here’s a circle that I can be part of and that can be a big part of my life. If it wasn’t for comics, I would still feel like an outsider. No matter what else happened in my world, I always had comics and that’s how I met a good part of the circle of my friends. The people I’m closest to are all in the comics scene.
Now I’ve also been lucky to make a few close friends in the gaming, television, and other facets of the fan universe. Comics are my first love, comics are a big part of what makes me, me. When I settle down to read something, usually it trends towards comics. It’s why I still write about them, doing reviews for rhymeswithgeek.com in the midst of the death of Comics Crux. If I had to be honest with myself, I was about to take a break from just everything for awhile. Just disappear for a bit because Comics Crux was a big part of me. I helped Jess out with a lot of that site so it was hard to resume just writing about comics normally. Then when Rhymes With Geek happened, I felt that comics coverage just wasn’t done with me yet. I do mainly reviews for Rhymes With Geek and that’s a lot of fun for me.
At this stage though, I need to have outlets to cover stuff that I just want to rant about with comics. Hence, the blog making a full comeback. Every day I will post something on here. Every single day, I fell dedicate myself to posting something on this blog. I’m not going anywhere, sometimes I felt as if comics internet was done with me but far from it. I used to say to myself that I am the man who will not die. That is not a statement meant as bad, I don’t give up. I don’t die that easily, I survived too much crap to go away without a fight. With the push of a good friend, honestly a couple good friends over time, the blog is returning with a vengeance.
Comics Internet, I never went anywhere but I feel like I’ve been gone for awhile. I’m better than ever, I’m stronger than ever, and now I’m ready to make the Comics Internet and beyond a bit more interesting. Don’t call it a comeback, call it a revival to a new level. Bring it on Universe, I’m ready.
