And I’m back with another Geek Out Challenge post! This one had me thinking quite a bit actually. You can read Megan’s answer through this link. Now onto the prompt!
Day 8 – What geeky hobby do you have?
Oh, way too many to count honestly. It’s been hard to settle down onto one and I think I’m just gonna go with one I haven’t addressed in a while…
I love comic books and superheroes.
I mean, in my answer about which was my first fandom, I talked about this. I actually read a few Archie comics in my younger years and as I got older, I started reading manga. I was still kinda intimidated when it came to reading comics. I only knew what I had picked up from Teen Titans, Batman the Animated series, and the few DC Animated Universe movies I’d seen.
I finally started getting loaned comics in college, loving anything that had the Justice League. I think one of the first comics I was able to read was Obsidian Age. I absolutely loved it…I think it was one of the first places I honestly thought that Bruce and Diana worked.
Young Justice I slept on for a small while because I didn’t even know it was airing. I was more wrapped up with other things I was watching before I even gave the show a chance. I finally finished the first season a second time yesterday and I’m going headfirst into season 2.
When I found out there were comics that were tied to the show and I tried to get my hands on the ones I could. My sister was also into comics by then so we ended up exchanging a few comics together. The third compilation of the Young Justice comics I had to get a digital copy. I randomly find myself reading it on my phone when I get the urge to read comics.
I’ve also read web comics, one that I was big on a long time back was MegaTokyo. I stopped some time after that tension filled page where Largo and Erika almost made out. That page was freaking amazing.
More recently, I downloaded Webtoon and I’m actually enjoying it as another way to get my fix on comics. The one that has had me OBSESSED is ‘Let’s Play’, which I cannot wait for it to come back soon.
I do need to keep reading more comics, and get back on my book train too.
