I hate introductions. No, wait; that’s not entirely right – I like reading introductions, I like knowing whose words I’m reading – I just hate writing them. They’re kind of necessary, though, otherwise new names appear on bylines and you’re all “Wait, who is that? Are they writing for the blog now?” and things can get kind of confusing, so here goes: Hello, Blog@ readers. Pleased to make your acquaintance.
Oh, alright; pleased to remake your acquaintance, if I’m being completely honest. After all, I was here way, way back at the start of Blog@ version 1, all the way back in (looks back to check) 2006. Since leaving these hallowed pages, I’ve written for places like io9, the Robot 6 blog and SpinOff Online over at Comic Book Resources and various other haunts, both online and otherwise. I’m mainly writing for Time Magazine’s Techland blog these days, but like Arsenal but an Arsenal who joneses for comic blogs instead of the cheeky white horse of comic book heroin, I’ve been itching to get back into the regular comic book blogworld, and so… here I am. For those familiar with my work: I’m sorry. For those unfamiliar: I’m sorry in advance. One thing in my defense, though: I’m not really a serpent who scares Odin in Mighty Marvel Continuity. That’s this guy; I’m much, much shorter.
