It’s January 1, 2014. That heralds two things: a Happy New Year, and the official launch of Comic Book Fetish (finally!). This little blogsite of comic book love has been in the works for nearly a year, and I’m so excited to get it going that I no longer care why it was delayed. Surely, you’re probably asking “Why yet another blog dedicated to comic books and its wacky industry?” Look. I have a book fetish in general, but specifically a comic book fetish.
