I am a comic book girl. I admit it. There is no shame. I was usually the lone girl visiting the comic shops or conventions. I remember certain high school friends who thought I was "cool" because I had a running subscription to Comic Buyers Guide, including the occasional enclosed posters.
I was predominantly a DC Comics fan. Wonder Woman was my heroine and Legion of the Super Heroes arguably my favorite comic group. Crisis on Infinite Earths kinda ruined some of the magic. In their attempt to gel the different versions of the super-heroes, they lost the intriguing stories. Supergirl died heroically. Huntress, the daughter of Batman and Catwoman, was suddenly a non-existant heroine without a home. Infinity Inc, children of Earth 2, struggled to regain its pre-Crisis interest.
So I wasn't a big Marvel fan. A few years ago, when I was taking a web design institute at George Washington University, my Flash instructor helped created the Stan Lee Media site, a highly graphical site with Flash animated comics and some other "cool" features. I also loved the "Make your own comic book" creator, where you could pick the background, props, hero stances, and even dialogue. I really enjoyed following "The 7th Portal" series.
Stan Lee Media seems to have gone the way most dot.coms have gone lately... into bankruptcy. However, I discovered for my fun and amusement, some has put together a site with all the 7th Portal episodes for download and viewing.http://stanleereturns.sourceforge.net/7thportal.html
