About Rich

Howdy!

I'm a high school English Teacher/Technology Coach in rural NW Pennsylvania.
I've been reading comics since I was old enough to realize the squiggles in the white boxes above the Flash's head actually meant something.

While still aspiring to be a comic book writer, I've managed to scratch one item off his bucket list when I succeeded in getting published in a national magazine. I wrote for Wizard for nearly a year for their "dot comics" column, starting with issue #110.

My first article had the Shakespearean title "Comic Book Babes Brought To Life."

I've got a couple of projects in the works right now. I've got what I believe is a superhero book with a lot of potential in the works with several issues completely scripted and waiting for an equally aspiring artist willing to work with a guy who's supporting two kids in college on a teacher's salary. I've got another project in the works with Atomic Pop Art which will probably see the light of day before the first one does.

I started a group here called "The Scribes" for comics writers both professional and aspiring. If you fit the bill, come on in and pull up a keyboard!

I think it is really nice. It may add some new dimensions to what is the "board." Nice work!

I've only started to play with the features, Rich. Like most new boards, all the new toys to play with are slightly overwhelming, and since I'm not a techno-phile, it will take some time for me to explore them all. (I don't know a bloody thing about Facebook or MySpace or any of that.)

Naturally, there is a certain reluctance to leave the comfort of the established board, but life has taught me that, once the new becomes the way of life, within a few months, it will feel like it has always been that way.

In sum, I see no downside to this board.

"Aaggh! With issue 14, we get the first part of Cullen Bloodstone's story as he tells it to Hazmat, but we will have to wait for the next issue to hear the rest of it. By the way, I really hate Nara. I hope she gets harpooned."

Give your opinion

I put a survey in the tabs at the top of the page. Registered, non-registered, lurkers...all are invited to take part, but please do so only once.

This survey will be open for some time, so there's no rush. Wait until you've really solidified your opinion of the new site.

Thanks!

Why the Change to a New Site?

Posted on May 27, 2009 at 1:30pm 22 Comments

Lumbering Jack asked this on the old boards:



" In what respect(s) do you think this site's failure to "keep up" has hurt us, and how will the new site address these perceived problems?



{I'll admit my bias, here. My wife has recently become addicted to Facebook (mostly for purposes of playing Pet Society). All I can see from my exposure to that "social networking" site is a vast sea of people, bound together by nothing more than vague chains of acquaintance, twitteringTM…

Well, what do you think?

Posted on May 25, 2009 at 11:11am 22 Comments

I guess another good way to test things out is to try out the comments section of this blog area. Cap, the Commander, Chris, heck, anybody we want can post a blog here and folks can comment right at the bottom of it. This would eliminate the need for separate forums for the comments to them on the board.

So let's give it a shot: What do you see as the benefits of using this site? What would be the disadvantages?

Discuss!

Welcome to the potential new site.

If you haven't registered, go ahead and get started. Look around, play with stuff, upload a few pictures. If you are at all used to Facebook, this will seem very comfortable to you.

 No fistfights. No flame wars. No trolls. The Captain Comics Round Table tries to be the friendliest comics website on the Internet.
