    Matt here also known as @citizenone3 on Twitter. Please consider following me on Twiiter,

    I wanted to see what is going on in another fantasy forum and see what everyone is talking about.

    I am a big time comic book collector or was when I had less real world responsibilities. As such I have complete or near complete runs of several Marvel titles such as Avengers, Daredevil, Ironman, and Captain America.

    I am also a big fan of Star Wars and have read several of the books including the Fate of the Jedi series which I thought was excellent.

    I am looking for people who want to chat about the latest fantasy, sci fi, or superhero movies, tv shows, or books.

    I also recently started a forum of my own and am in the process of developing a website. It is a fun way to connect with people with similar interest as my own.

    Later all,
    Citizenone

    Hi Matthew White and welcome to TFF.
    From what I've seen there are lots of superhero and Star Wars fans here. :)
    I'm more of a traditional fantasy enthusiast myself (elves, dragons, medieval-based, mythic-type stuff) though I must say I'm loving Brandon Sanderson's work. He seems like a pretty creative guy.

    Have you read R.A. Salvatore and any of his fantasy books based in Forgotten Realms? I am finding myself more interested in sci fi an sword and sorcery and less so in superheroes lately. One of my favorite comics is Red Sonja now. I even gave up on some of my old superhero titles because I was getting tired of the storylines after reading some of them for 30 years. Yes I am that old. :>

    Yes I have read RA Salvatore! I'm re-reading the Icewind Dale trilogy now actually. Drizzt and his cat-buddy Guenhwyvar are old favourites of mine.
    I've never read the Red Sonja comics but I saw the old movie (ages ago now - yes I am that old...lol). The first Conan was pretty good too I thought (I mean the old version with Arnold, I haven't seen the new one). Maybe Greybeard will join in this conversation in coming days...he's a huge sword and sorcery fan. :)

    I also read some sci fi (my second-favourite genre after fantasy). One of my favourite books in that genre is: Childhood's End by Arthur C Clarke. There have been lots of good sci fi movies out in the past five years too: Oblivion, Inception, Source Code...all great stuff!

    Have you read his Stormlight Archives series yet? Only the first book is out, but he is planning on creating at least ten. I also suggest Patrick Rothfuss's Name of the Wind

    Welcome to TFF Matthew :) You've definitely come to the right place to pursue your interests :D

    And as to old age, there are some 1000-year old or so (I forget, they forget) members here who would gladly reminisce about the “good old days” :D

    Yup...I loved "Way of Kings".. that series is going to be amazing I think. The second book "Words of Radiance" is coming out this year. :)
    I tried Rothfuss "Name of the Wind" once but it couldn't hold me for some reason. I found it too slow to start.

    You better not be talking about me young 'un! :D
