themaninthecave IMPORTANT CHRIS RANT: So, today I saw someone who I've followed for a very long time make a violent comment directed toward 2 comic book creators that I'm close to and respect (it wasn't made toward me)...and, while I believe the comments to be hollow and not actual threats, it's still disturbing for someone to say that they want to kill you just because they don't like the comic you're creating.
This nerd culture that many of us are a part of is a wonderful thing. When I released my comic this past year I really got to see it up close. Everyone was so eager to talk and share the things that they love...including me. And it was a truly beautiful experience. A community where I can write comics for you because it's what I love...where people can make costumes and cosplay because it's what they love...where folks can share what they like to read and watch and listen to...because these are things that make them happy and empower them. And we shouldn't pass such terrible judgement and say such nasty things when people like something different. We shouldn't say something vile when someone writes Batman or Spiderman or something less popular, in a way that we don't envision the character! It's fiction! It's an idea. It's one person showing their love for something, and you can get over it if you're the biggest Batman fan and it's not to your liking if bats didn't throw the batarang enough for you...or if Dr. Who didn't say enough weird rhyming shit.
Embrace one another because it's not a community built on ego...it's one built on love of imagination. So when you're thinking about exerting yourself in such a violent way over something made up...I think you need to climb out of your dream world and examine the type of person you are, and if this is the right community for you. #tbt#comiccon#love#comics#nerdyattractions#bestoftheday#photooftheday#thepaladin#tidewatercomicon#virginia#writer#art#geekculture#guardiansofthegalaxy#fun#dontbeadouche

  •   joycloud19 Nerd culture! 53min
  •   kylecoffeyart Wow that's really bad. I myself have been annoyed by some kinda writing or even art in a book but have never wanted to go that far. U give wise words. Some people need to step back and look at who they've become when they've gotten angry. They probably wouldn't like it 47min
  •   themaninthecave @kylecoffeyart thank you! 43min
  •   themaninthecave @elleafont you need to watch the directors cut of Bambi! 43min

symphonichope AHHHH look what @meganstormc got meee!! First of all let me just say I thought I would never see this amazing piece Megan first drew for me because it got destroyed while I was moving, but she had an extra copy and gave it to me last night as well as this adorable groot bobble head! I was almost in tears when I saw the picture!! I'm so glad I have it again so I can put it up and show everyone how talented my best friend is!!! #art #groot #guardiansofthegalaxy #selfie #ginger #popvinyl #nerdyattractions 4h

ravenxwonder My boots and jumpsuit are here for my next costume. Which will hopefully get done when I get home in time for Indiana con with @asgardbarbie 5h
  •   asgardbarbie Those are amazing! I'd wear them without a costume! Where did you get them? 5h
  •   ravenxwonder @asgardbarbie I bought them on eBay but they were originally from modcloth I'm debating if I should paint them, or just wear them like the are so I can wear them on a day to day basis. Yay for a random pain medication purchase haha 5h
  •   asgardbarbie Keep them as is! They're beautiful!! 5h
  •   ravenxwonder @asgardbarbie haha ok I was leaning that way because they would be a pain to pain. I thought the laces came out but they don't so it would have been a struggle to paint the part under it yellow lol. 5h

themaninthecave @mkhurram666 tagged me to list my top 5 favorite comics...which was incredibly hard for me to do and it always changes. But here are my 5 in no order: Y: The Last Man, The Dark Knight Returns, Mother Come Home, Daytripper, and Watchmen. Feel free to chat me up about this list. Also...I want to know top 5 from @thelocabat, @titanmoonchild, @batman_villains, @ny_gambit, and @deanparhamjr. #love#comics#bestoftheday#batman#watchmen#daytripper#ythelastman#mothercomehome#graphicnovel#art#writing#top5#nerdyattractions#tool#schism 9h
  •   abusimsim_photos I really need to read daytripper it's on the to do list I really can't choose a top 5 it's too hard lol so much great stuff about @themaninthecave 9h
  •   themaninthecave @abusimsim_photos when you read it let me know what you think. I really think is some of the most unique storytelling out there and just a good idea for a comic. 9h
  •   abusimsim_photos Those guys r such awesome storytellers from what I've seen on here and I've bn meaning to catch up I've gotta backlog of about 30 trades before I can venture into new stuff @themaninthecave 9h
  •   deanparhamjr That's too hard! But gun to my head I'd say: Y, the last man (Duh), Kingdom come (of course), Marvels (yup), X-men: age of Apocalypse (fun), East of West (sucker for a good western). 8h
  •   themaninthecave @deanparhamjr oooooo marvels is a goooood one! 8h
  •   kennedke Nice! I just finished Watchmen and am reading Y now! 8h
  •   blahneri OMG YES YES YES 8h
  •   blahneri But I'd have to replace two of those with Saga and Punk Rock Jesus. 8h

trojan_man22 I actually sat down and drew something! It's been about 4 years since I've drawn anything, so I think this is pretty acceptable. #Pokemon #drawing #art #charizard #fire #dragon #hobby #nerdyattractions 20h
