How I Started Out

I've liked comics since I was about 8 years old, maybe younger, I started out reading spider-man and x-men comics. I still have some of those comics. I use to buy comics at the comic shop a lot. But now that I've moved, I don't have the luxury of a comic shop. So, although I haven't bought any new comics in such a long time, I know that I will forever like comics.
    The last comics I got were for my birthday when I turned 17. I got them from my bro and his girlfriend. Scooby doo, and another spawn comic. I loved them, oh, and they also got me a sonic comic by Archie comics. So as you can see, I really like Image, Marvel, and Archie. I'm not much of a fan of DC comics, but I can say that I've read some comics by Darkhorse that have also caught my eye.
    It's unbelievable how many publishers there are, and I hope that someday, I will be a part of that. That I will be working for one of those companies. That would be a dream come true. I've had that dream since I was a kid, to either draw, or write comics, maybe even both.
    I remember when I was a kid, I use to spend hours just drawing comics. They weren't anything good, and I no longer have them...but it was the start of something beautiful.
    For a long time it was almost as if I'd forgotten about comics. But deep inside, I never did. Then I discovered webcomics. I use to read them every now and again, and then I really got into them. Which eventually led me to start my own webcomic, when you can find here: http://fbcg.comicgenesis.com
    Since then I've gotten heavily into webcomics, not only drawing but reading them. Someday, I hope it leads me to the career of my dreams. But I will probably never know until that happens.         People constantly tell me that I'm not good enough, and wont ever be good enough. The only person who believes in me, is me. But then I have someone special whose always believed in me also. People also always tell me that I wont get anywhere without a degree. Well I'm determined to prove them all wrong. The more they disbelieve, the harder I strive to prove them wrong. Someday, I hope that I do. But there's always that chance that I will still be proven wrong. But at least I'll have the understanding of knowing that I tried my best, and never gave up no matter what anyone else always said.

I do have a lot of interests but I wouldn't say I'm very good at any of them. I seem to go from interest to interest and I get bored andwant something new. Thanks for the words of hope chick. :) I wish you well also.

We're all just pawns in the same game. If you can't find something you enjoy after you've been alive for more than 5 years, I think it's really sad. I hope you find something that makes you happy. Good luck on your hunt.

Yeah, it is rare. I'm still trying to find out what I would like to do and I hope I do get a chance to (do it) when I figure it all out.

Yeah chances of actually doing something you enjoy is really rare these days. I just wanna get through this crappy life and find something better.

Good for you. Listen to your heart, not others. If everyone listened to everyone else we probably wouldn't achieve anything in this world. I know a lot of famous and/or successful people without degrees. I don't have one myself and I do feel pressured to. Most people with degrees are in jobs they hate because they can't get a job they want anyways. I would like to get one but only because I enjoy learning. <br />

P.S. I know a lot of people who still enjoy reading comics. I had a few when I was younger and I take a peak at them every now and again.
