SEND MORE ROBOTS
So I'll put my money where my fingers are and start off this introduction fest. My handle is hawkeyeorhawkguy, but the others will often abbreviate this to "Hawk" or "Guy" for the sake of brevity. I'm just your mild-mannered human who works an unremarkable retail job by day and gallivants through the magical world of comics and vidjagarms by night. Admittedly, I wasn't always a video game and comic fan, but I was always a table-top gamer and avid reader. It wasn't until college that I was really bitten by the nerd bug, and unfortunately I didn't wake up with spider-like abilities, just a consistently empty wallet.
Here I am now, two years after graduating from the University of California with a degree in history (that I still have yet to pick up from the registrar's office) and my wallet is still empty. But I think I may have found a way to justify the bookcase full of comic trades and those single issues littering my room. With Send More Robots I can hopefully use my knowledge of the comic-verse to enlighten and assist others as they embark on their journeys through a land that is increasingly difficult to navigate. Boom, Dark Horse, DC, Dynamite, Marvel, Image, Valiant... Where do you even start?
I have no idea. But when I was 14 and I first read Batman: Bloodstorm, I wasn't worried about publishers. I just wanted another comic. And to this day I'm the same way. I'm far from an expert, but I'm here to help, and I'm here to learn from you. So let's get reading, huh?
