    Default Write-Up in Atomic Junk Shop

    So, when CBR imploded not long ago, a splinter group formed; rebels, devoted to sharing their experiences of geek culture with the world, in defiance of the new Empire that took over CBR.

    They invited me to come along; so I did.

    Eventually, through a series of events, that led to me being invited to start writing for the site.

    My first article went up this morning, and it's about a comic that many of us on this site may enjoy:

    I've always liked Nemesis, Box (all of them), Puck, Feedback even. Charcters who just are who they are and stand out without comparisons to other characters (like Canada's Captain America or a furry Hulk or....)

    Live it.

    Yes, I love that originality you get with some of them.

    And I was thinking when I wrote it that a few of them were, well, Canada's Captain America or a furry Hulk or...

    I will give your article a read right now...

    But I can't stand what CBR has become. Just want to lay that out there.

    Cool write up - just finished. I liked the original Nemesis, but then when she came back - it was never explained how or why (usually turning to ash is a final death, even in comics!)

    That's why the Atomic Junkshop exists, frankly.

    Thanks; and I agree about Nemesis being unexplained; part of why 'Jane' is considered a second Nemesis and Amelia a third.
