Brian Wood and Jeannine Schaefer are interviewed about their new X-Women team! Here's the funny thing. I had a friend ask me if I was going to do anything with comics. Here's my thing with comics. . . I am not opposed to them. I actually find benefits to comics and graphic novels in my line of work (uh... Literacy teacher?). I mean, I just taught ONOMATOPOEIA as part of figurative language and used classic comic book examples. I just, sometimes feel like I missed the comic boat. That I needed to hop on board when it started before I was ever born. To catch-up now, I would really be struggling. I mean, look how behind I am as a geek PERIOD! Comic books feel incredibly intimidating to me. I'm not really sure how to start. So I've put it on the back-burner until I can figure out an angle where I don't feel suffocated by the immensity of the field.
I started telling my husband about this. He's actually a pretty knowledgeable comic book guy. And I was like... what are some awesome ONOMATOPOEIA I can use for pictures.... OH!!! BAMF! What's that other one that is like very specific to comics? He reminded me about SNIKT! I was like "woah! Yeah! That's awesome!" He decided to pop-quiz me. "Name those ONOMATOPOEIAs." NAILED IT! Nightcrawler and Wolverine. That was awesome. Then again, I remember how awesome it was in the X-Men 2 (2003) movie when they made the perfect BAMF sound. That... was a proud geek moment for me.
