Hello there readers,
So from an early age, though I cannot recall how early, I have always been interested in comics and everything that could be described as ‘nerd culture’ – However I genuinely dislike this term.
I have always been the kind of girl who loves to read and my mother says that I never had my head out of books when I was growing up. I guess you could say that my love for reading was always going to translate into comic culture as I grew up.
My first real venture into anything that can be described as ‘nerd’ or ‘comic’ culture began when my parents took me to see ‘The Lord of The Rings’ trilogy when they were released in the cinema – although these are not necessarily comics, my interest into the genre began after watching these films.
Despite being mainly a Marvel fan, the first ever comic book that I properly read was ‘Lucifer’, which is a creation of DC Comics. Since then my interest into comic culture has vastly expanded into different genre’s, and has also become an area of work that I am genuinely interested in.
So we have established that I like comics and also ‘nerd culture’ – but why did I set up this blog? Well, since living in Aberdeen I have realised that there is a flourishing and colourful local comic scene, and I then decided that I wanted to set up an online space that would showcase this. The website will include comic book reviews, news, opinions, interviews and also cosplay features. There will also hopefully be further articles that will be based upon other features of ‘nerd culture’ such as Star Wars and Marvel and DC comics and film adaptations.
