Zilla and the Comics Junkies

Wednesday, March 22, 2006

And there came a day, a day unlike any other...

On this day last year, after debating over it for about two months, I decided to make a trip to the local comic store for the first time in a few years. On that day, I bought Ultimate Iron Man #1, Marvel Knights Spider-Man #10 & 11, and Marvel Must Haves 25: New Avengers 1-3. I was back into comics on a trial basis, I said I'd give myself four months and if I wasn't back into them by then, I'd give them up forever. Here we are now, one year later, and I'm spending more and more on them each month. In fact, I'm spending too much now.

To "celebrate" this, I exported my collection database to htlm so I could share it with the readers of this blog. It's not a big collection compared to many others, but it's a start.

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.
