Wes Reads 2/18/18: Catching up With Valiant, That’s the Issue, and More!

Now I’m on a schedule of sorts between That’s the Issue on Multiversity and Graphic Policy, time to get back into daily blogging.  I fell off the rails early on this year but now I’m back into things. Okay I fell off the rails most of 2017 but I feel like 2018 I’m in a major rebuilding process. I’m catching up on books I missed the first time around for example. I remember my running gag with Rhymes with Geek of I always fell behind on Valiant worst of all, by golly it remains true. I’m fixing though as I tore through Wrath of the Eternal Warrior and Faith’s limited and last ongoing series. Both series were delightful and I highly recommend both of them. Now if you’re wondering what exactly this post is about, nothing really. Just sit back, relax, catch up with me for a bit.

I truly believe having That’s the Issue as a part of my life has helped me out tremendously.

Odd enough to admit but That’s the Issue has gotten me feeling more like me again, strange to admit but true. It’s also the podcast that has stuck around the longest in my life. The neat thing is that this podcast has only just begun to grow.  Even as I rebuild my online presence and that still remains fairly solid. I’m amazed at how long I’ve managed to stay around in Comics Internet at times. I do admit though that dealing with the full blown toxicity that was Secret Empire burnt me out. Now would the burn out have happened either way? Maybe the burn out wouldn’t have been as bad but Secret Empire sped it up. Slowly but surely though I’ve regained my sense of love for this crazy comics world again. Which is pretty awesome.

Why I’m trying to get back into a daily blogging routine of sorts. Daily to semi daily routine at least. I enjoyed the Kick-Ass #1 review I did recently for example, so I’m finding writing and talking about comics fun again. Yes I’m candid about my burnt out and so forth but it’s better to admit than deny it. When you deny your issues and don’t confront them, that’s when the real bad stuff goes down in your life. If you’ve ever listened to the filter death episode of That’s the Issue, that was what I call therapy in a podcast. Again that’s hilarious to admit but it’s true, That’s the Issue is a therapeutic podcast in the best way at times. I guess it shows how comfortable I am in talking on that show. It doesn’t hurt that Matt is practically like my brother at this point.

Yes That’s the Issue is part therapy session on occasion. Not exactly hiding that aspect of the show.

I guess before I start rambling away hardcore on this blog of mine I’m going to jet off for now. I do have other ideas for this blog outside of just blogging but if you want unfiltered Wesley thoughts, this will be the place to find it. They may be a little disjointed at times but that’s how it rolls sometimes. I tore through an entire series today though and that shows that I am having fun again. Join me on this ride won’t you? Till next blog my friends, thanks for sticking with me and enjoy the adventure. To anyone reading this, have a good one.
