The Bouletcorp Takes the Long Journey

One of the best things about social media is finding about things you haven’t ever followed before. It’s introduced me to amazing indie games and webcomics that I never would have found without it. Thanks to Skottie Young this afternoon I found out about The Bouletcorp who just pulled out what is an absolutely stunning use of the webcomics medium. It’s been a long time since I’ve run across something that really made use of the lack of limitations you have on the web in comparison to the printed page. A single panel, an entire story told by scrolling. Congratulations Bouletcorp you have earned yourself a new reader and hopefully more people will head on over to their site and check it out.

Welcome to the New Nerdstock

For those of you who don’t know Nerdstock was once a thing I did dedicated to my love of comics. It was something that mattered to me but in the […]

For those of you who don’t know Nerdstock was once a thing I did dedicated to my love of comics. It was something that mattered to me but in the end it didn’t work out. I couldn’t find my niche. I lost the passion and I started to write about things I didn’t care about it a way where it sounded like I didn’t think they were pretty much crap. It was then I decided that maybe it was time to stop and reevaluate how I wanted to go about using my internet. Well, cut to a couple years later and a better understanding of who I want and what I want from geek culture, and here we are. A newer and hopefully better Nerdstock.

Joining me in this party are a fantastic group of women writing about the things that we love and the issues that surround them. Covering the news that WE care about, not just vomiting up press releases and other such nonsense. Limiting myself to comics was I think my gravest mistake last time because what happens when that passion starts to fade? I turned more attention to helping Plastikitty succeed than I did on my own site. This isn’t a comic book site anymore. It’s nerd culture in a nutshell. Reviews and features around film, gaming, comics, animation, and literature. We care about all of these things and we want to share that passion with you, the people who decide to stick around and read this here place.

So with that out of the way, welcome to the new and improved Nerdstock, where passion is our tool. Sorry we’re still working on a slogan.
