The Hook’s Love of Comics: The Secret Origin.

Here, for your reading “pleasure”, is another Pulp Nation/Hook crossover.

Not sure exactly what to say about this one; it’s deeply personal, but that’s only because the list of things I’m truly passionate about is very short.

  1. The wife.
  2. The family in general.
  3. My writing.
  4. Comic books.
  5. Bacon.
  6. Anything wrapped in bacon.
  7. Ned Hickson’s mustache.
  8. Murdoch Mysteries.

To be clear, I’ve never been passionate with Ned’s ‘stache.

That would just be weird.

At any rate, here’s the link. The rest is up to you , friends.

Thank you.



About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.

  1. Saving pennies to buy a comic. So many did. Get saved by comics, that is. Not just shallow fodder, those thin pages

    SNIKT! BAM! WHAMMO! Excellent piece Hook. Graphic novels, as they are now called, are more and more popular. I think you may be in on the ground floor of something big. Don’t pay any attention to the naysayers.

  3. The word you seek is ‘arse.’ Good luck anyway.

    Luckily, I’ve never had to think about why I enjoy comics. I just do.

    My 10 year old has gotten in comics, so much so I’m afraid that he’s already hooked (no pun intended). What do you think? Here are some of his symptoms: He reads them non-stop on his kindle (I know it not the same as the books, but he’s 10), he actually makes up his own comic books, he has sketch pad where he draws the characters and/or their trademark insignias and he knows how most of them came to be.

    What do you think? Tell me Hook, Is there any hope for him?

    All kidding aside, I was never into comics, but I love the fact that he found something that he is passionate about at a young age. It would appear that a few trips to the comic book store and perhaps a comic-con are in my future…

    I read your Pulp Nation piece. Thank you for sharing your story.

    And thank God for Bruce Wayne. Too many of us need heroes like him, and too few find them. ❤

    {On another note, I always wanted to be Wonder Woman when I grew up. But I that had more to do with Lynda Carter than with the comic. 😉 }
