[personal profile] eponymous
Hello!

Open Beta is almost upon us, and since it appeared no one had created a community specifically for discussing the medium of comics, I decided to do so myself.

Although I read a few comic books here and there as a teenager, my interest in comics was more recently discovered this year. This means that I'm just beginning to explore the form and all that it has to offer. At the moment, I find that I'm most interested in single volume works (what are sometimes referred to as graphic novels). On the other hand, I can't sustain the attention to follow open-ended series, it seems.

My vision for this community is to have a place where other people who are interested in and enjoy reading comics can discuss them. I'd like this to be a place where seasoned readers and total newcomers will be equally welcome. This is a place to discuss history, content, form, theory, trends, genres, styles, themes, artists, writers, etc... And while fans are welcome, it's not a forum to discuss 'ships or cosplay or othersuchthings.

Hopefully that provides us with a good starting point! If you have any suggestions or would like to help out, let me know.
