I’m 11/11/86

I’m new to these forums. Long time fan, recently got back into comics this January but I’ve already amassed a HUGE collection of TPBs and Hardcovers (83 total). I believe Millar is the modern day Stan Lee. I like new creations rather than anything from Marvel or DC. I believe those heroes were for their time. Millarworld/image/dark horse is for our era or generation. I’m happily married (sometimes) will be 3 years January 31st. I want to write and draw indie comics.


#289

I am new to these forums. I want to get ot know other people who are as interesting in the same things as I am.
