    I'm DaeJi and I am the reason the word "epic" was created.
    Everyone has a price. Some are cheaper than others.

    The solution to every problem you'll ever have: get over it.

    My name is Bree, and because I'm the only one in my group who can string letters together into somewhat legible words and sentences, all the other members of the blonde tribe I belong to have labeled me "gifted"

    I never liked English teachers... but since you like comics you're forgiven. :)

    Best of luck with the forum.

    I don't like English teachers either, which I why I became one. I infiltrated the enemy encampment.

    I'm Chris Jones, and I hope to get a comic of my own published one day very soon.

    Screen name: beetlebum. It comes from a Blur song - and yes, I am a huuuuuge fan of the likely lads from Colchester.

    Damon Albarn * loving sigh*

    My real first name is Stephanie. As for my last name; only a handful of people online know what it is, and it will remain that way for quite some time.

    Occupation: Student; majoring in international studies. I thought I was going to go for a dual major, but I decided to just major in one area, that way I'll have more free time on my hands, and I'll be able to take classes in areas that interest me (examples: philosophy, linguistics.) In at least 15 years time, I hope to work for either an NGO, or the State Department (and hopefully make a comfortable living doing so.)

    And saying student is so much nicer than saying unemployed waster (which is what I technically am.....)

    I use off board smilies because the on board ones bore me.

    Favourite musical acts: Tiziano Ferro, Laura Pausini, Wang Lee Hom (so cute!), Rihanna, Editors, The Libertines, four songs by Babyshambles, a few songs by Lao, Thai, Albanian, and Cambodian hip hop artists, The Jam (and Mod revivalists in general), rock bands that emerged during the mid - Sixties (The Sonics, The Who, etc.) Radiohead, M.I.A, Fabrizio Moro, Ximena Sarinana, Black Kids, Damien Rice, several R'n'B acts, Brit Pop, Dizzy Gillespie, one song by Lil Wayne, and Baby Bash, any song featuring T-Pain (which means every damn song on the radio....:p), Missy Elliot, Timbaland, The Neptunes.

    Currently reading: Any title that has the The Huntress - I'm mad fer Helena Bertinelli. Several Batman trades ( re-reading The Long Halloween at the moment.) Also reading; Trinity, Buffy: Season Eight, Angel: After The Fall. I'm trying to get into Ms. Marvel, thought I haven't gotten past issue five of her series.

    I'm also reading the works of existential 'continental' philosophers, (mainly Sartre). I plan on re-reading Dostoevsky, and finishing reading both The Penance of Portia James and Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko.

    Other things to know about me: I live in Northern California. I type using UK English because I'm an Ango Phile. I try to be as sanguine as possible, though the optimism engages with a dialectic struggle with tendency to be phlegmatic (experiencing pain does tend to make one cynical). I like using big words; I have no patience for emo whiners and the self entitled.

    So that's me in a nutshell.

    Btw, here's a song to celebrate this occasion:

    Are you ready?

    I know I am. ;)

    You've brought back Stephanie Brown. Now please bring back Helena Bertinelli!

    I'm Gene, but CBR registration didn't like my name and made me assume the cognomen Gothos.

    Since you say this is the place to tell you you're wrong, I do have a disagreement with a point you made in your opening essay, and blogged on the point. But should we discuss it, I feel it ought to be a separate thread. What do you think?

    Gene, start a new thread and let the discussion begin!

    Hi! I'm Matt, and I also write stuff (forums.comicbookresources.com/showthread.php?t=246520). Currently I reside in the lovely little town of Denver, and enjoy movies, reading, and Chinese food.

    I'm still finding my way around here (this place is HUGE), but I hope to read a bunch of your columns soon and put in my two cents.
