A Beginning!

I've finally decided to take the plunge and start a blog of my own. My initial idea, as some may have guessed from the title, is to discuss the world of comics, not only 1960s Marvel Comics (and other periods), but other companies and creators as well. I will look into the obscure, the forgotten, and the unusal. Since my interests are varied, I'm sure I'll diverge from time to time, and topics beyond comics, such as movies, books, Televsion, Animation, etc, will be shared. 

I'm currently working on an introduction to the Tales to Astonish Masterworks, which will include the contents of TTA #'s 31-34 and all the non-hero filler stories. I'm thriled to get this assignment, and have been holed up for the past week or so, researching, reading and revising. It's coming into shape after about 8 drafts, although I may feel differently after I look it over again.   
I suspect this blog will evolve over time as I feel my way around. I hope what I write will be of interest and provide some worthwhile discussion. I welcome comments and love hearing divergent opinions; it makes life interesting and I might even learn something.
