Interests Meme

It's been a while since I did this one. Who wants to play?

From komikbookgeek: Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.

invincible


Invincible is a comic book series by Robert Kirkman and published by Image. It's about a teenager whose father is his world's "Superman" and finally discovers his powers. It starts out like many teen superhero stories, but it quickly becomes darker as he discovers that his father's purpose for being on earth is not all it seems...

It just passed 50 issues, and is a lot of fun. MTV has even created a video/comic hybrid series (http://www.invincibleseries.com/ to learn more).


moonlight



Moonlight is a show that ran during the 2007-2008 season on CBS. A vampire detective show... you know the type. It seemed pretty predictable at first, but the longer it was on the air, the better the writing and acting became. But alas, cancelled. I'll miss it. :(


runaways



Another teen superhero book (published by Marvel), this time about a team of superpowered kids. Brian K. Vaughan created it, based on the premise: "You know how every kid thinks his parents are evil? What if they really were?" The team works to stop their evil superpowered parents, and then deal with the aftermath.

The first 24-ish issues were written by Vaughan, then Joss Whedon took over for an arc. Finally, Terry Moore will be starting his run at the end of August 2008. I'm really looking forward to that - as my next interest will show...


strangers in paradise



Terry Moore's Strangers in Paradise was the first creator-owned comic I ever read (on the recommendation of kalalanekent) -- and wow. This series, which ran for over 100 issues, is about a trio of friends. The lesbian, the straight girl she loves, and the boy who loves her. But their relationship is so much more complicated and satisfying than my simplistic description.

Add to this a really great suspense plot, some great comedy, and heart-breaking tragedy... plus an unforgettable cast of characters... This is one of the all-time great comics out there, IMHO.


they might be giants



My favorite band of all time! Anyone who visits my last.fm profile would see that immediately. I have every album, have memorized most of their songs...

They are quirky, interesting, geeky... they don't just write about the same old stuff. Music for the brain, and for the silly side as well. And they just keep going, after 20+ years they are still recording, and hooking a new generation on their music. :)


travel
I love to travel. And I haven't been to nearly as many places as I'd like. I've been to: most of the USA, parts of Canada and Mexico, Germany, Denmark, France, Egypt, the UAE, Singapore and Japan. I'd most like to go to: Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Eastern Europe, China, South East Asia...

writing
It's the reason I'm on LiveJournal in the first place! I love to write. My fanfiction is finally slowing down, though, to take a back seat to my original novel, which is still in the beginning stages. It is now outlined, the preliminary research is almost done, and about 1500 words are written. It's a slow starter, but I tend to jump into the big projects without looking. So I'm taking my time with this one. Hopefully the final product will be worth it!

I have to remember to put RUNAWAYS on my subscriptions list. I still haven't read Joss' run yet, though -- did you like it?

And I'll do the meme.

You should definitely do that! I liked Joss' run all right -- some people really hated it, but I was satisfied overall.

I choose:

Cool. :) I got into Invincible late, but I'm really liking it. Heard about some of the others, but haven't tried them. Already got a long subscription list... (Quick plug: I use Jacey Services, a small internet mail-order company run as a sideline by one guy as a way to make a little extra beer money. Been very happy with him.)

Love TMBG, too. Should go get more of their albums...

Impressive travel list. And yeah, I went to Australia and New Zealand a couple of years ago. Spectacular trip. :)

Anyway, I've done this one, but always happy to do it again. So ask if you want, but I won't be offended or anything if you don't.

This looks like fun! Also, makes me want to get a hold of Runaways. I heard they're making a movie. =/

You should! It's really a great read. And yes, Runaways is on the list for future Marvel movies. It'll make a great one, with lots of sequel potential.

Hit me!

Yay, Invincible! I just started reading it (I'm two trades in) and I'm really loving it. Mark is too adorable, and their DC-analogue world is so well-rendered.
htbthomas
Aug. 13th, 2008 11:39 am (UTC)
Woo! Another reader! I can't remember what part of the story two trades in would be, but you have so much delicious story yet to read!

And for you:
albi the racist dragon (I love you have this as an interest!)
cole porter

kavalier and clay (I keep meaning to pick this up)
oh boy! tentacles!

Oh, it was! I'm sad it ended. :( I'm sure the DVD will be available in a month or two (if not now), if you want to see it!

And I highly recommend all of those comics. :)
