“To begin with” is how my English teacher always had us start our papers. So I use it now not only to start this blog, but also to start this endeavor into the comic book biz. I have always been of the mind that I should keep the things I enjoy and the things that make me money completely separate. (Isn’t that one of the ten crack commandment?) I’ve taken this measure not only to ensure the purity of the art or hobby, but also to keep from despising something I love, due to the fact that I am required to do so in order to make ends meet. Perhaps it is with age that my principles seem to decay. (not unlike my eyesight and hearing) Regardless, I adhere much more loosely to them. Perhaps this is also why the idea of doing nothing with the second half of my life except getting fat off hot dogs and reading comic books seems like a better idea with every passing day. I suppose this is just life, but I digress.
Furthermore, (yet another formulaic transition from pre AP English) It’s safe to say that this endeavor has already gone quite a bit further than many I have embarked upon. So with that glimmer of positivity, I hope this business brings a little fun to the world and I hope we can make a little money. There, I said it. I want to make some money. So buy some comic books. If you don’t get comic books from Killer Kaiju, please, get comic books from somewhere. (If you’re old enough, you’ll get that reference.)
