Whether you're an old friend coming over from the old place or a new reader who picked up one of my business cards or heard about this from someone else... Welcome!
For those of you who are new here, I am Starman.
This is a new blog, but I've been writing about various geeky things on-line for over a decade now. Long enough that I've written roughly half-a-dozen introductions to blogs and sites I've worked for before this one. Most of that time was spent writing about comics for Fanzing, 411 Mania, Comics Nexus and my own comics blog, Looking To The Stars.
So why am I starting this new blog?
Partly it's because some of the places I've written for have vanished into the Ether and I wanted to have all my writing in one place. The other reason is that, as time went by, my interests have progressed beyond comic books and my writing has grown to reflect that.
I’ve roamed far; farther than any other man of my family ever wandered. I’ve seen all the great Cons of the Dal'Las - the AnimeFests, the All-Cons and the Wizard Worlds. I’ve roamed in the unknown countries south of the black kingdoms of Canada, and east of the Lake of Worth. I’ve been a comic shop salesman, a cosplayer, a shadowcaster, a Who-ligan, a gamer - hell, I’ve been everything except a writer for a professional company and I may be that, before I die.
So what can you expect to find here? Besides dragons, of course?
Comic reviews - both monthly titles and Trades. My thoughts on the most recent Doctor Who episodes and comics. Movie reviews, both good flicks and bad movies, suitable for Riffing. And whatever other geeky things take my interest.
I hope you have as much fun reading this as I have writing it. Let the fun begin!
