Howdy! All over the internet you can find reviews on just about every comic issue out there; reviews from well known comic authors, artists, and bigger name “reviewers” (or review sites). But, what about the little guys take, the comic newb? What about the review from someone who hasn’t been reading comics their entire life? Well that’s my goal. Obviously the longer this goes the more seasoned I will become, but as I review my favorite (and not so favorite) comics, I will be embarking on a journey from ‘comic newb’ to ‘comic nerd!’ So stick with me and see if I can convince you to pick up a new read, or make you rethink something you have already finished!
Before I jump into my first review I thought it would be nice to have a quick introduction to who I am and what I am all about. My name is Gordon. I have known Dusty for about 10 years (since high school), as well as knowing other Dustimus Prime contributors (Mike, Matt, and Carly) for nearly 8 years, including working with each of them at a specific retail monster. I have always been into video games, computers, etc etc etc, but I didn’t get into comic books until December of 2015 when my younger brother bought me the first The Walking Dead book (which will be my first review (#1)). I have since become obsessed, spending more money than a new father should (4 week old daughter) on comic books, and taking a graphic novels class at school this last quarter, in which I wrote my own comic and won 1st prize in class (hopefully uploaded to the site soon as well as continued).
I hope to contribute something fun and new to Dustimus Prime, as well as sharing my new found passion for comics and graphic novels. Keep an eye out for my next contribution “Newb to Nerd Comics #1: The Walking Dead.” Hopefully I will have it ready soon! Thanks for meeting me!
