Something has perplexed me in the world of comics, recently: The random whining over the work of current Batman writer, Tom King. For example:
From Tom King’s Twitter.
I couldn’t understand where this was all coming from. I’ve seen it off and on for a bit, now. If you don’t know much about King, you can listen to his first interview on Bat Force Radio – which is ridiculously enjoyable, and I’ve listened to it more times than I can count. I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting Tom twice in the last few months – both at Fan Expo Canada and Planet Comic Con. It’s easy to gather from meeting him, or even just the podcast interview – Tom King is a fantastic guy. So, the complaints can’t be based on people disliking him as a person.
I thought more about the things people were complaining about, specifically. And this is where I found my answers:
I first heard about the STL Comics Summer 1 Day show when I saw a flyer at Villainous Grounds, a while back. It sounded awesome – a con focused on comics, with loads of vendors, and only $5 admission for adults. THIS was something I severely needed in my life, since our area feels like it’s lacking this sort of event. That was one of my huge complaints about Wizard World St Louis this year – where the hell were the comics?
So, I’ve been missing for a bit. I know, I know. Bad Angel. But, I’ve had a lot going on. Mostly health related junk. I won’t bore you with the details. Just know I’m slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things!
But, I have this awesome little thing to share with you:
BatForceRadioEp083: When in Rome with the Cat Force !
I was on a podcast! The boys of the Bat Force ( @TheBatForce on Instagram) invited myself and the other Cat Force ladies on Bat Force Radio to talk about ourselves and, more importantly, Catwoman: When in Rome. It was a TON of fun, and I appreciate everyone that can go give it a listen!
I’ll be back very soon with travel updates, recent little trips, and more! Stay tuned!
