And We are Off..
It is with a great abunince of pride that a write this editoral for the first online issue of Reviewing Comics, an ongoing website dedicated to the reviewing of comic books, from classics to new. We have high hope for our future in this endever and look forward to bringing to the internet on a regular baces comic reviews to be read.
To Start with we are going to have a focus on classic Marvel comic books from the 1960′s, but with broaden our scope some with time, to include books published in times other then the 1960′s and by publishers other then Marvel. but first let me address the reason for our focus, but to do that it may be easyer if I first talk a bit about my early interest in comic books.
In the early 90′s around the age of 10 -along with many of my peers- I developed an intrest in comic book hero’s. At that time, television supplied a great tool to foster that, with the X-Men and later spider-man cartoons. The intrest spanded beond just TV, into collecting marvel card’s and aquireing a comic book from time to time. It did not take long for me to be hooked; so much so by the mid 90′s I had montly subscirpitons to over 10 titles. But then I grew up.
Much of the first decated of the 2000′s I spent away from comic books; persueing other intrest and learning how to be a grown up. But my comic book hero’s where far from forgotten and would frequently return to my thoughts; mostly in movies. much of that decatde was also spent doing web design and programing work; a skill that would aid me greatly in developing this site.
Then with the new decade, and a new love in my life (who also shares an intrest in comic books). I decided to rekindle my old hobby, and combine it with my new hobby of web design; also with the goal to become better at writing though writting more. So here we are, and this is my website about my passion.
So as for my choice of where to start, it was marvel TV shows, cards, and comics that started me off, and lead to my love of my first heros. So it seemed like a natural starting point for me, and then the 60′s when marvel was inventing the universe we know today in the early silverage just seemed like the perfect time to start reading and writing about.
So i look forward to you joining me on my journy though marvel; as well as reading anything else i write about from time to time on the topics of comic books.

An Extra Note
I feel this is worth mentioning, but this site, these issues and the reviews are all done at my research of at the hands of people whom I authorize to write something on the site, we are not endorced by any one comic company or any one opinion.
I will always strive to write accurately based on what I know, but I will always welcome corrections, comments and even differences of opinion. I am -like I imagine anyone still reading is- A fan, and just striving to add voice to my pation and my hobby, to give myself an open forum to have my oppions heard, but to also offer people whom may be looking to get into the hobby a source for some information, gathered by a fan like them.
