Comic Book Shelf Tour 2016 Part 1: My DC & Marvel Books

It’s about time I did this again, it’s been so long since I did a comic shelf tour – about two years! So here is part 1 where I show you my DC and Marvel trades.

I have a tonne of single issue comics – some on my shelf, many not (I just don’t have the space), and even more in a digital space. I decided not to show off my singles and just focused on my trades and hardcovers for these videos.

Oh Hey, It’s Been A While

I missed your faces a whole lot. Let’s talk again. <3

Hi readers! I am assuming if you’re reading this, then you may have found this link from my Twitter account or my YouTube account… if not, well then I have no idea how you found me, but hello!

If you’ve watched any of my YouTube videos, you know it’s been quite some time since I’ve created any new videos. I know, I’m sad too. But I needed a break at the time… have you ever been burnt out before? That’s what happened. It wasn’t YouTube that burnt me out to be honest, just life. My internet connection at the time was painfully slow and it would take anywhere up to 7 hours to upload one video at the time. It was just a lot of effort to get content made and uploaded.

I’m feeling really excited about the idea of coming back to making new YouTube content though, and I am ready for it. I previously was known for making videos in my car, for reasons I never really divulged. You might notice my new videos are really different and that’s quite intentional. A new start of sorts right? 🙂

I’ve had to buy a few things in order to get my set up looking alright, don’t expect Michael Bay style productions by any means! I just wanted to at least get the lighting right in my room since my lighting has always been an issue. So I’ve purchased some lighting, tripod and camera equipment to get started, but I am waiting on some super slow shipping to arrive to me which is causing a bit of a hold up. That being said, I am expecting that by this time next weekend it should all be here (fingers crossed for me!) and I should be able to at least get on my way to making a bit of a comeback.

What’s my plan for my channel?

So I still intend on making comic related content. For those of you who have followed me for my comic hauls, reviews, discussions and updates on what I am reading – you can expect this content once more. I also am going to start expanding the scope of my videos and start talking about comic related movies and television shows, comic and nerdy news and more discussions on hot topics in our community as well.

One thing I always loved about making videos was that it wasn’t really just me talking at you. It was you guys commenting right back at me and we could have a discussion. It’s important to me that we continue this in the future.

A new channel?

Yes! Don’t worry, my existing channel will remain! If you’re nerdy and just wanting comic related content, that’s what you need to know. Nothing will change.

BUT, I am going to be creating a second YouTube channel, starting from scratch (I’ll link it to my main account), which will feature vlogs, storytime videos about me and my life, lifestyle videos and health videos as well. Basically, a channel more about myself. I am aware that not everyone wants to see that on my comic channel, and so I’ll upload content to two channels and you can subscribe to both if you want, or just the comic channel – my feelings won’t be hurt if you don’t care about my life, it’s okay! 😉

Stay tuned.

I will be making regular posts here, and I’d like to blog content separate to my videos too if I get time. I’ll link my videos here too, you can find out the various ways to contact me if you want to get in touch!

Thanks for your support, I appreciate those of you who have asked me about my videos and when I am coming back. Thanks for your patience… it’ll be real soon.

Oh, and you can leave me comments below and I’ll message you back! Talk to you soon!
