Also, I apologise for the fail reply above this. I forgot to quote and I'm sort of a n00b on the forum side of things.

Alright, after starting an introduction thread with another account by mistake (I assure you, I didn't know), I'll give a proper introduction to Marvel94. Essentially, it's the same thing because again, the same Marvel94 made a new account and posted it here.
"Before I got into comics, I was a martial arts maniac. I was so actively involved in martial arts and I was hoping to one day become a mixed marital arts fighter and martial arts competitor. I could name a lot of martial arts styles and even describe them-though not actually use them, but just imagine if I could. My favorite martial arts fighting game was Mortal Kombat and I was playing a lot of martial arts video games...but how I got into martial arts was another story. To make it short though, I was looking for the character Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat ever since Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance in 2002. I left because I could not find him but found him in Mortal Kombat Armageddon in 2007(though it was released a year earlier). When I first played with Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat Armageddon, I had become heavily involved in martial arts gradually after.
From 2007-2009 I was in martial arts mostly. Then starting in 2008, with Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe coming my way, I was exploring what that then new world of comics. By 2009, I had began fully become immersed in comics. I had deovted my time to learn more about this medium and the pop culture world. Unfortunately, I was plagued with the idea of returning to martial arts because I was so well inducted into it before comics.
Now, I am hoping to balance the two worlds together and see if I can keep one world from going out of control. I hope you all understand this now. Sorry for taking so long to say this. Ask questions and I will answer if there is something you don't understand.
I plan to know the people who have posted on my threads before and I thrive on the Artist/Writer Showcase Forum to display my ideas and get advice from others and give advice to others on subjects I know. Please don't take my ideas.
You can find me on the Animation Nation Forum, The Film Maker Forum, and The DevMaster Forum where I will improve and display my ideas for animated TV and movies (Animation Nation), movies (Film Maker Forum), and video games (DevMaster)
Thank you all and sorry for the long hiatus."
That's me in a nutshell. Sorry about the mistake of making another account. :(

I'm new to the forums, but have been reading the main page for some time now. I jumped back in to the world of comics around the time Civil War was beginning and it engaged me like no other comic series had in quite some time. Since then, I've been hooked. I have weekly pulls that I collect, but it's never enough. Lol. My hunger for more awesome reads is like that of Galactus, so I must admit, I do download a bunch too. I support the industry to the fullest extent of my means, however, and my collection of physical books has been growing steadily since then.
Anyway, I've debated making an account for a bit and decided to jump in today. With so much happening in the world of comics, it's impossible to not want to share my thoughts and interact with others who are interested in them.
I'm also a big fan of manga and video games!
See you all in the forums :]

Hey everyone! This is my first time on the CBR Forums. I've never done much in terms of actual posting on forums besides the ones over on Marvel.com, I've always been more of an observer. Anyway, I'm here now because I've really been craving interaction with fellow comic book fans since I don't know anyone in my personal life with the same love for the medium that I have. So, I'm here now, and I'm hoping to make new friends and have some conversations!
To give you all a little background about myself, I'm a huge comic book fan (obviously). I've been reading and collecting for 10 years now. For the past 5 years, my tastes have really grown from when I first started reading. I used to ONLY collect X-books when I was younger because it was they were the first I read and the X-Men are what made me fall in love with comics. Now, I still buy every X-book, but I also collect a lot more Marvel titles, a few DC titles, and an ENORMOUS amount of Image and independent titles.
Anyway, I don't want to take up any more space or right a novel. I'm happy to be here!

Hello, I'm Skir, normally Skirmisher on CBUB, and all the little organizations that spun off of there like UWT. I got into RPing over there, and into the UWT, and Jeremi dropped a link to his Traitor Game and asked if I could participate in it, so Here I Am...
I'm a bit of a Newb when it comes to Comics in general, but other fictions I have a good grasp of, from Star Wars to Halo and Warhammer and all that.
Not sure what else to say really, so Hey.

I'm Roam, from England, I have been browsing the forum for a few weeks now and decided it was time to join in. I mostly read Batman TPB's but I'm hoping to expand my reading horizons with the help of you guys.

I'm CommanderSteve, I've been a huge comic and science fiction fan ever since I can remember. Mainly I signed up to participate in Darman456's Ultimate Marvel Reboot, but I've always browsed these forums so maybe I'll take part in some.

A Radiant Blur
Hiii. I'm new.
I'm a Marvel fanboy. I started reading comics around 1998-1999, I was 8 or 9. I randomly started looking through a box of plastic bagged books at a CD shop of all places, my aunt loved that I was interested in any kind of book and had me pick some out. I got a lot of back issues of Uncanny X-Men, probably 3-4 year old issues at the time.
My first story arc ever was the Crimson Dawn stuff. I caught on fast that all of these characters had immense back story/history and I felt like I'd never be able to catch up. I had 5,000 questions like why is Psylocke dying, why is Archangel injured? I saw the notes referring to previous issues, like the Sabretooth one shot, and planned to look for those the next time I got to pick out books. I wondered how Wolverine and Archangel got from Soho New York (I also wondered if Soho was real) to China (I had no idea places like Chinatown existed), to some magical world. I loved it.
I slowed down reading around age 15, I think I had a love/hate relationship with Chuck Austen's writing. It was inconsistent whether I liked or hated each issue, and I didn't like the New Mutants / New X-Men Academy X stuff, so I just stopped picking things up.
The whole Second Coming/Schism stuff brought me back. I went back and (mostly) read everything I'd missed in the X books between 2004-2010 or so (including the New Mutants stuff that didn't interest me before). Uncanny X-Force and Wolverine and the X-Men has me back hardcore. I'm currently in rabid fanboy mode and can't believe I ever forgot how much I loved/love these books.

My name is Marina and I'm 20 years old. I suppose you can say I'm fairy new to the comic scene! I grew up in love with the show Teen Titans on Cartoon Network. My middle school art teacher was a big comic aficionado and he let me borrow some of his "The New Teen Titans" issues. I LOVED it! Since then, I never really kept up with the hobby until now. Truthfully, I guess the Avengers got me into it. I loved that movie, even though I never saw Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, etc. I used to think comic book movies had too many explosions but now my mind has changed completely. Since watching the Avengers, I've seen Thor and watched a small motion comic up on Netflix and also watched the entire X-Men series and loved it. So... here I am!
Right now, I'm currently reading Young Justice on my tablet. I'm a little disappointed that they're nothing like the Teen Titans, (I assume because in that comic I read, they were around college-age?) but I'm loving it nonetheless. I have a lot on my reading list from both DC and Marvel including Booster Gold, Deadpool and more. And I'm also watching the JLU animated series! I'm open-minded to non-superhero comics as well, but since I'm just starting and this is what interests me, I'm sticking to it for now so I don't overwhelm myself. :)
I'm going to school full-time right now just as a liberal arts major. On the side, I have an etsy shop called Weeabootique where I sell some shamelessly weeaboo and japanese-influenced items but I've also lately tried to make some comic-related things. I love what I do, even though I'll probably have to get another supporting job in order to make ends meet. I have a lot of anxiety with meeting/talking to other people and trying to be a functioning member of society in general. But maybe I'll meet some cool people here!
Ahh, I think I've said enough. I can't wait to participate in this forum!

Hi, my name is Huy Minh Le and I've been a Spiderman fan for a long time, watching the 90's TV Show then the Sam Raimi movies and then the great Spectacular Spiderman cartoon which sadly got canceled.
But only just this year did I decide to read an actual comic of Spiderman. It was Tom DeFalco's "The Real Clone Saga" which I was encouraged to read since it's an alternate version of the actual Clone Saga and people have been saying it's a good comic. So it's officially the first real comic book I own.
I'm studying to become a videogame designer and have skills in animation, which I'm using to work on an Indie Movie at the moment with a friend.
I also do writing, and even there I have to admit that Spiderman has inspired me a lot in that regard.
That is, writing in terms of Dialogue, as with story itself it seems to kinda go down the drain ever since One More Day, but who knows.
I'm open to suggestions for comics of Spiderman which are good, even if they're after One More Day.
So yeah, that's me in a nutshell.

Hi, I'm Thomas Gorence - and I've been a comic enthusiast all my life. My favorites are The Invisibles, The Filth, Animal Man, Classic X-Force/X-Men (of course), lots of Vertigo titles, and even more smaller publisher works.
Like a bunch of others on here, I'm a game designer / programmer (more on the technical side), and have been working at post-production facilities and recording studios for most of my professional life. I've been working on an original comic book for quite a while, and intend to release it soon! Been lurking around here for advice for a long time, finally time to sign up for an account and introduce myself. Glad to be here!

Hey everyone, nice to meet you all. I really got into comics about 8 months ago and i'm upset it took so long to discover them. (22 y.o) I knew about the characters and certain stories but never followed them like I am now. I've been having a great time reading mostly x-books but I am trying to branch out into other stories/characters. My favorites at the moment are New Mutants, WATXM, and X-Factor.
I don't know anyone that's into comics so when I stumbled onto the forum I got so happy. I can finally read others opinions on what i'm reading and find out what they are taking away from each issue. I could even be persuaded to pick up a book that I had previously dismissed because I didn't have the right info.
My opinion on comics is that they are a great escape. I get so into them i'll forget about everything that's happening around me. The worst thing about comics has to be when I finish an issue and realize I have to wait another week or two to escape again. See you guys around the forums.

Ey all. New guy here.
I'm here because I'm looking for resources... for mah comics.
But yeah. To make it brief: I collected comics when I was younger (my favorite series of all time: West Coast Avengers), eventually I became a Truck Driver and, (since you can't park 80,000 lbs, and 72 feet of truck in a comic book parking lot) I began pirating my comics (minutemen scans were my friends). Digital comics just weren't the same though, and I eventually got out of the game altogether.
Well, I've quit trucking, work as the Night Guy at a hotel, and have come to the conclusion that it is time to catch up on a lot of stuff (Read: spend money I should be saving for my future childrens college education). After spending a few hours compiling what I consider to be 'essential' (buy list at bottom of post), I began creating lists of stuff I needed to get to really flush out the collection.
In essence: I will be collecting mostly hardcovers (and sc's when I can't and even single issues if I just have to) of Marvels past crossover events, beginning with House of M, and working my way from both present day backwards, and M onwards, until they meet up. At which point I will start working backwards. Maybe I should start with Avengers Disassembled though... I mean, really... its the real starting point for M, right? hmm...
Anyway, below is what I've already ordered. As you can see, while I enjoy the entire Marvel continuity, I am a bit of a one-trick-pony.
