I VISITED Naples on the 8th of December, 1818. My companion and I crossed the Bay, to visit the relics scattered on the shores of Baiae. The transparent, shining waters of the calm sea washed over seaweed covered fragments of old Roman villas, receiving chequered diamond tints from the sun-beams. Imagine water so clear, so blue, that Galatea herself might have skimmed over them, or better yet, Cleopatra might have chosen this path for her magic ship, deeming it more fitting than the Nile.

I AM the native of a sea-surrounded nook; somehow this cloud-enshrouded, inconsiderable speck manages to outweigh far larger nations. It reminds me that the human mind was the creator of all that is great, and Nature herself is only our trusted servant.

I LIVED far from the busy haunts of men, and the rumour of wars or political changes rarely made it to our mountain abodes. England had been the scene of monumental struggles during my early boyhood and in 2073, the last of its kings, the ancient friend of my father, abdicated in compliance with the wishes of his people, thereby allowing a republic to be instituted. He received the title of Earl of Windsor along with Windsor Castle, while his family were also allotted significant estates. He died soon after, leaving two children: a son and a daughter.

THE LAST MAN
HAPPY were the months, weeks, and hours of Adrian’s year long exile. Friendship, hand in hand with admiration, tenderness and respect, built a grove of delight in my heart. Insatiable thirst for knowledge, and boundless affection for Adrian, combined to keep both my heart and mind occupied and content.

I am writing this post to address the events that began to unfold a couple of days ago on twitter. What started as an expression of freedom of speech quickly became ugly, as one of our creators chose to cross a line. Continue reading “Update”
The story of Lucha Comics, and our kickstarter for The Kursk made it to bleeding cool! Check it out here…
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, a den for everything comic book related, and of course that meant that I fell in love with everything comic book related. I remember watching Batman and X-Men cartoons on TV, sprinkled in between classics like GI Joe, Transformers, and Thundercats. As time has gone by our culture along with the quality and quantity of product has grown to extraordinary proportions, and I’m more than grateful to have a small part in all of this growth. I absolutely love indie creators and the passion they show for their product; it’s unmatched in any other industry and it pumps me up to see others so passionate about their comics. Often times indie creators are overlooked and under appreciated in the comic industry, so it’s my mission to shine a light on them and get their message out to the public.
I do reviews and opinion pieces for Comicbooked.com along with a team of really wonderful and really dedicated folks that share my love for everything comic related. We all have love for comics and comic creators like Lucha Comics and other indies. We love doing reviews and we love shining light on Kickstarter projects like The Kursk.
We believe in indie creators and we want more than anything for them to succeed so we attempt to shine a light on their projects for readers to consider and hopefully back. I encourage everyone to help and be a part of something great while assisting someone with their passion and making something they love come to life. There is no greater feeling than helping people and the best part is that in the end backers get great books to read, and know they were a part of the creation.
