I'm beginning to do some work connecting with Twitch Streamers, as this has been a goal for this organization to take advantage of and connect with for some time now. So if anyone knows anyone out there with Twitch, please let me know.
On an unrelated note, Civil War premiered this past week. I'm ashamed to say that I was so busy with all the last minute stuff that comes with event planning, that I wasn't able to make it out and see it. I hear great things, and I expect nothing less from a Marvel movie. However, at the risk of sounding like a social subclass that I don't self identify with, I did read the book. Civil War was one of my favorite Marvel story arcs, and I'm really excited to see it play out in theatres. It felt to me like a Marvel story that really brought a lot of the super hero story out of the standard 'good guys fight bad guys, earth shattering odds are overcome, bad guys are vanquished, good guys fight bad guys . . .' wash, rinse, and repeat. Though there have been plenty of comic book stories that make us explore life and death, who our allies really are, what happens when our personal values are challenged, and more, Civil War was different for me. The idea of really questioning why the heroes do what they do, dealing with ideas like who really deserves freedom, and is safety worth any sort of cost kept me turning pages. There were some triumphant experiences, sad realizations, and powerful imagery and writing in those books. I'm incredibly excited to see it play out on the screen. I'll be checking back in after that.
What about all of you? What were some of your favorite moments in comic books? Did they end up on the silver or small screen? How'd that pan out for you?
Thanks for reading, and until next time,
All the best,
