Welcome To Extremely Uncanny
In the halcyon days of the internet blogosphere, I wanted to be the next big internet comics blogger. Lofty goals, I know. Either way, I went around the net as a comic reviewer and such in pursuit of that goal. I found varying levels of success on different websites, but I got tired of the reviewing world. It’s a grind being a reviewer. The big comics platforms push for new comic reviews, and not a lot happens month to month in comics to talk about single issues. This combined with the usual formula of synopsis, critique the writing, art, and conclusion, new comic reviews are a chore to write. There is only so many ways to talk about the a piece of the same story each month. This requirement to talk about current and new released combined with the fact I wanted to speak about weird, old comics is what exhausted me on the comic review sites.
That said, I do miss aspects of blogging and such that was long form writing (well, longer than a tweet). I used to enjoy writing for leisure and reflection, but life and school has slowed that passion. Things are getting to where I can write more and I have thoughts to express. The question became how do I want to express it.
That brings me to this blog. Extremely Uncanny is a combination of my old and current twitter handles. It is a combination of my past and future. Also, it sounds catchy. The vision for this blog is a space where I can talk about something on my mind about comics, video games, tv, movies or trading cards games. Whatever I really want to talk about this week. So expect some reviews, but more conversational pieces for the site.
Be sure to follow me either via email, RSS, or on Twitter (coming soon): I will try to update regularly. One thing I plan on doing is a new post once a week and possibly start archiving my prior work. My new comic reviews I wrote for various sites will be excluded. Not because I hate them, but they don\’t really matter here much these days.
