Zilla and the Comics Junkies

We've Found a Third Member for our Un-named Organization

Ok first there was the excellently entertaining Return to Comics, then there was Zilla's Journal (you're there), and now there's another who was back on the wagon for a while but couldn't resist the sweet song of the addiction: Check out Mark Fossen's Focused Totality. Mark's been away from comics a mere 5 years (a young'in by my standards since i was lost for 15 (j/k MF). Mark's blog just started today-ish so give him some time to ramp up - he's no stranger to the blogging game though so i expect good stuff. At the very least we have a new member of our secret addicts-back-off-the-wagon club (see Return to Comics 6.24 post for details). Welcome to the club Mark, i figure at least the 3 of us can comment all over each others blogs :)

and you know what? maybe this is saying good things about the industry these days (on a very small scale obviously but still!), us 30-something's who had given up for a time are heading back into the fold...

Thanks for the shout out, Zilla!

I think "Comics' Prodigal Sons" is a great name for our unnamed club.

I can't tell if it's a good thing or bad that comics' new readers aren't "new" at all ....

I'm all for "Comics' Prodigal Sons" (great name) but then i heard we may have a new female member... TBD?

Maybe "Comics' Prodigal Ones" instead? Or how about "Three Guys, a Gal, and Some Comics"? Scratch that, too specific. We'd be forever updating the logo.

In no particular order:

Criminal, The Goon, Daredevil, Exterminators, Punisher, Hellboy/B.P.R.D (All), Powers, Godland, Usagi Yojimbo, The Walking Dead, Invincible, Conan, Ex Machina, DMZ, Desolation Jones, Fell, 100 Bullets, All-Star Superman, Ultimates 2, Loveless, and Fear Agent.

I'm recently back reading after a 15 year comics hiatus.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
