Can you believe that it has already been one year for UncannyDerek.com? I sure can’t.
Look at the comic book world, though. Tons happened in just ONE year. Just take a look:
Since I’ve started UncannyDerek.com:
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
What started off as a site for me to publish my own thoughts for comic discussion and writing tips suddenly became a site of reference for a lot of people.
Articles on comics I’ve done, such as describing what CGC Comics are, and explaining why there are different barcodes on earlier comics have been major draws to the site.
Of course, I cannot forget to mention my other draws here, such as discussing body images in comics, the hyper-sexualization of women in comics, and discussing how tackling racism in comics has seemingly disappeared.
But what I really do appreciate this site for is the community around it.
Since starting UncannyDerek.com, I’ve really connected with a lot of comic book fans. We engage in discussions, shoot ideas off one another, and really just enjoy doing what we’re doing.
Although I have slacked in updates as of late, I really do remain dedicated to this site. I still check upon it every day and always have ideas to write out on this. Expect a lot more to happen as I press-on!
So here’s to another year! And as always, keep on Space Truckin’!
