What is Rotten Ink?
Rotten ink is that smell your nose is treated to as you open an old comic book to read in your favorite spot. That decomposing ink is a smell that brings back many great memories of being a kid and living in a small town in Ohio. This blog is about those fun days of my youth, buying comics off the stand at the comic shop or the super market and being so exited to witness the new adventures of my favorite hero.
I have been a long time comic book fan and grew up reading about Captain America, Spider-Man, Batman, Man-Thing and The Incredible Hulk and always wanted to find more issues based on my favorite do-gooder. This blog is about my love for Star Comics, the kids’ branch of Marvel Comics in the 80’s that had series based on some of the biggest and best toy and cartoons of the time like Masters of the Universe, Silverhawks, Thundercats and many more!
It’s about all those classic Marvel and DC movie and TV comic adaptations that many of the kids of my time grew up reading.
It’s about comic companies like Topps, Fangoria, Atlas, Northstar and others that left us too soon and still had more great issues to give us.
It’s about the modern independent comic companies that are bringing us fresh and new ideas.
It’s about epic comic book battles and wars like Frankenstein Dracula War, Superman vs. Spider-Man and Marvels Secret Wars!
It’s about horror films and my love of watching them from black and white chillers like Dracula and The Wolfman to modern day slashers like Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees.
It’s about video games and the impact systems like the Nintendo and Sony Playstation had on me and my family!
It’s about horror hosting and how such great hosts like Commander USA, Dr. Creep, Joe Bob Briggs, Grandpa Munster and A. Ghastlee Ghoul shaped me into the creative person I am today!
It’s about family and friends with whom I’ve shared many fun adventures and who have all impacted me in positive ways!
It’s about my filmmaking with Independent B Movie and Bloodline Video that brought my shot on video visions to many home video screens!
It’s about all this nerdy stuff and more.
It’s also about my life and what’s on my mind. So I hope you have a good time on this blog as you sit back and share in some of my favorite things and travel down memory lane and even spot a thing or two that may have meant something to you.
