"Dreams save us. Dreams lift us up and transform us. And on my soul, I swear...until my dream of a world where dignity, honor and justice becomes the reality we all share--I'll never stop fighting. Ever." - Superman, Action Comics #775
For those of you who may not know me my given name is Josh but most people know me by Captain Iconic on various social sites including twitter! I've been on the interwebs for awhile (which tells you I'm old.) I use tumblr to access various outlets of media that I find interesting and use that to show everyone a little part of me.
If the quote didn't give it away or my header image, I'm a big Superman fan and thus a big comic book fan. Comics along with various other reading material helped me escape a rather difficult childhood so my love for reading has stayed with me into adulthood. Right now I focus more on comic books and graphic novels. I'm a fan of DC but I do like to expand my library every now and then.
My favorite Comic Book Heroes include Superman, (of course) Booster Gold, Batman, Wonder Woman, Zatanna, The Flash (Barry Allen) and Green Lantern!
Aside from reading I'm also an avid TV watcher. I'm currently a fan of Smallville which will always be my number one show! The Vampire Diaries, Sleepy Hollow, The Originals, Pretty Little Liars, Arrow, Penny Dreadful, Law and Order SVU and I love all reality shows with Chef Gordon Ramsay!
Josh Reads Comics
This section will include a list of comics I enjoyed the most in my current batch of material. I'm usually two to three weeks behind from the current releases but usually no more than that.
I will try to include a link of a preview of each comic. HINT! there may be spoilers!
So here's what I've enjoyed so far for May and June.
It's been a dry watching period since most shows have ended for the season. I'm using the break to catch up on other shows that may have caught my interest.
Showtime 10pm ET/9pm CEN
Season one has just begun, I believe episode 5 has aired but I've only seen up to episode 2. Very dark and intriguing.
Pretty Little Liars
Returns June 10th
ABC Family 8pm ET/7pm CEN
I've been watching this show live'ish since season 1. One of my few favorite summer shows. True drama without the Supernatural... Although last season did try to poke into the strange and unknown but let's not talk about that...
Returns June 23rd
MTV 10pm ET/9pm CEN
This show has really evolved over the past 4 seasons. If you gave up on it or have never seen it give it a shot!
