You never really know what’s going to happen when you post something on your fan site. Will anyone ever care? Maybe they will! We put up a collection of pages of Ian Miller artwork from an edition of Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles. It required the sacrifice of a copy of the book, but frankly, no one seemed to give a shit we posted it. Months later, out of the blue, someone searched for Ian Miller artwork from Martian Chronicles. Word spread from their repost. Suddenly we woke up and wondered… who the &%$#! are all these people looking at this?!
In the same month, someone got jazzed about Wolverine getting his adamantium ripped out by Magneto. And that post just keeps getting pounded every day. We just thought, hey, this is a cool piece of comics history someone might want to reference. And they found it, eventually.
That’s fan blogging in a nutshell: “I think this is cool, maybe someone else will. Oh, look – they did!” And then you get to chat about it. That’s the awesome part, really. Not stats. Chatting with people about mutual interests. I could go up and down my entire block and not find three people to chat with about Wolverine and his goddam adamantium. But thanks to the web, we can enjoy a little connection over our personal obsessions. And you know what? Sometimes we learn something along the way. And sometimes… we even send you mail. Postal anarchy forever! Mountain Lions Forever! Long Live the Resistance!
