OK, we're not talking about THAT Flash for once(But I WILL be talking about him SOON). Today is about FLASHPOINT and how excited that I am for it.
-When I was a kid, I clung right away to Spider-Man, Batman, Captain America & all those guys. I was primarily a Marvel kid. Marvel did a GREAT job of intertwining their comics in those days, so that characters would jump in & out of other characters books almost on a monthly basis. But, DC really didn't do that too often. The way I learned about the "second tier" DC heroes was the same way everyone else did-the Super Friends cartoon.
-Then, when I was 10 years old, I happened across The Trail of The Flash and fell in love with the character, in no small part to Carmine Infantino's artwork.
-Today, DC Comics revealed(most)details about this years FLASHPOINT line-wide crossover focusing on The Flash.

In addition to the 5 part Flashpoint title, there will be several important one-shots and FIFTEEN mini-series. FIFTEEN. I've never suffered from "Event Fatigue", and as long as the stories are good, nobody should. BRING IT ON!!!!

I forgot that I even had this thing!

Actually, I really didn't. This was something that I always meant to start doing again, but to be honest, for the past 2 years or so, I've been depressed. Not deep, soul-crushing depression, just kind of "the blahs". Most of it due to what I want to do with my life. And while I still haven't figured that out, I'm beginning to feel a little better about the options that I have.
-First off, I've decided to take a class. The teacher is a friend of mine and it's something that I've been meaning to do since last April. Starts in March. Can't wait!

"I am not going to sit on my ass as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life. I’m going to take a stand. I’m going to defend it. Right or wrong, I’m going to defend it."
