“Comics Are a Fantasy World, Where You Want to Stay” – Friðjón’s Story

The Comics Empower Project has almost almost 100 personal stories!  

This time, Friðjón tells his story:

When I was 10 years old and had a birthday I got my first Icelandic comic of Donald Duck (Andrés Önd) in birthday present.

That comic changed my life.  I have always loved the stories and the world in that comic.

Then I started to buy Donald Duck comics and another comic like Tarzan and other comics.

I was even a subscriber on a Icelandic version of Donald Duck comic books called SYRPAN.

I also love the comic strips in morning paper like Garfield and many other funny joke comics. I usually read them daily in every morning.

When I was 13 year old, there were adventure comics called He-Man and Masters of the Universe and Brenda Starr. I was a big fan of both.

It was the best comic I have red in the morning paper.  But now it is no longer in the morning paper.

But my love on comics has never stop and it will never stop.

Comics are most of all a fantasy world where everything can happens and good place to stay with your minds and thoughts in it when you are focusing on that comic world.

I also like Marvel movies because those movies are based from Marvel comics.  Comics will always fill your life of joyful and fun moment when you read it.

That is how I feel when I read comics. Comics will always be a king of entertainment and joy because the it is from a world we want to life in in with our hall of our imaginations.

All-New, All-Different Avengers – Do Fans Want New or Same?

What do YOU hear when you read “All-New, All-Different Avengers?”
What I hear is: “All-New, All-Different Same-Same.”

Clearly, yes, this is a marketing thing. Based on the marketing premise that works, called “Loss Aversion”, where people are more afraid to lose out on some event or detail than to risk buying something new. (Full details here: http://newworldscomics.com/?p=672)

But that’s not what I care about. What I care about here is the point of view of the readers.

New or Same?

Aurora #1

Aurora #1

As you know, we recently launched Comics Empower, the comic book store for the visually impaired. The comic books are translated to audio form, describing the panels and pages in a way that doesn’t break the story.

Comics Empower has one comic book series that’s exclusive to the site! It’s called Aurora, featuring massive mecha action with a blind hero at the helm.

What IS Aurora?

An army of alien mechas (giant freaking robots) are attacking the Earth!

In their last attack, they wiped out our defenses and left only one survivor: Daniel Price, his eyes burned off!

No longer able to see his foes, Daniel is the only man who can enter and activate the huge, robotic Aurora mecha and save Earth from total extinction!

But how can he defeat an enemy that’s faster, smarter, and better than him?

It’s fun and exciting mecha action, available monthly at the Comics Empower store!

Here’s Why You Can Enjoy It But Not Read It

Aurora will always be available first for the visually impaired at Comics Empower and only months later in visual form at the regular venues.

So if you want to get in on the action now and see what you’re missing out on – check out Aurora here!

“I Would Have Been a Villain if Not for Comics” – Al Kahpwn’s Story

The Comics Empower Project has almost almost 100 personal stories!  

This time, Al Kahpwn tells his story:

I was born pale and ginger in an Italian neighborhood and I was picked on all the time for it.

Each year that passed seemed to get better for everyone around me while my years just seemed to get harder.

As early as the first grade I was skipping school due to not wanting to get picked on anymore, but was forced to go anyway.

I snapped and I changed myself into something tougher, meaner, and less fragile then I really wanted to be. My life changed that and I became the Villain if you will. 

I fought back and I fought back hard.

I started fights, stole cars to go on joy rides, yelled at and fought with teachers who joined in on the fact I was so different. I got worse and worse until they sent me away to a special school for kids that act up all the time. I felt like the bad guy inside at this point and felt it was my role or part to play in life.

I had to take the public train into the new school each morning and change lines twice. In one of those stations was a news stand and I picked up some comics to read on the ride.

I do not recall what my first comic was mind you, no.

I only remember the one that sucked me in, the X-Men. Sounded like a bunch of bad guys to me so I picked it up.

The characters were so complex, bad or good did not really exist until they took action.

The more the story got into Wolverine the more it dawned on me,  I am not the bad guy yet.

Even though I was not proud of everything I felt I was and had done to that point, I could still turn it around. My 15-year-old mind was set on fire by the ideas and complexities of the human existence.

About good and bad, evil and holiness, god and the devil. Like most comics, life is not black and white. People can be bad then change their minds about it all and be and do good.

Redemption is possible for people and I think that lesson was the greatest lesson I ever learned.

Maybe just maybe the bad guy turns out to be the real hero and gets to live out his days making up for everything he has done.

“Comics Are a Lifestyle” – Josh’s Story

The Comics Empower Project has almost almost 100 personal stories!  

This time, Josh tells his story:

To me, comics are more than just a book.

More than just some words and some artwork. Comics are a lifestyle.

As a kid I read comics and watched the cartoons. I had the action figures and the trading cards. I loved the X-Men, and to this day am a huge Spider-Man fan.

In sixth grade my class was forced to write a story for the young author’s competition. I chose to write a comic.

I didn’t win, but I really enjoyed creating the character and his arena to play in.

Fast forward 20ish years later. After being a mildly successful musician and a part-time movie critic, my heart has led me back to where my creativity started.

I (we) are reinventing my old characters as well as creating many new and off the wall villains and heroes.

Some of our books will be novels. Others will be comics that span from satirical adult only type books, as well as comics for every person.

We have a lot to do, but can assure you that our stories and characters will be original and will push the boundaries of storytelling.

We are excited and look forward to trying to entertain the world. Or at least like six of our friends.
