The team at Comics Ninja is excited to announce that we have teamed up with Dominique Agri and her gang at ComicsPeriod.com to bring the Ninja Nation top notch video content. The ComicsPeriod.com mission is to educate readers, fans and newbies alike about comic books and the characters that make up that world. Dominique is eloquent in her mission statement and will bring an, ahem, needed female perspective to the Ninja Nation.
From her website she states “More than ever before in the history of the industry, comic book characters are popping up in film and on television with regularity. After decades of remaining two dimensional, we’re finally seeing what was once only in our dreams. With almost a hundred years behind them, comic books have amassed a wealth of characters, books, and most importantly, fans. Readers enable Superman to fly. ”
“When you read a comic book, you’re reading a tiny piece of history. It is in great appreciation to all those who came before us that Spiderman is still around or that Wonder Woman can throw a lasso. Never before was a superhero movie taken seriously in the way Christopher Nolan’s Batman has been and conscious of it or not, it is all because of people like you.”
“I read comic books as a child and I’ve always loved their presence on the screen but until two years ago, I hadn’t read a comic book in more than a decade. When I started again, I found it much different from what I’d remembered. Comic books aren’t written for children anymore. They’re filled with clever subtext and symbolism. They keep you engaged in a way that a novel can’t. Their sharp illustrations bring you closer to the character and this is perhaps why so many fans feel a connection to their comics like nothing else. I know I do.”
“I am fearful though. I am so grateful that the industry has remained stable after all this time but unless we keep them alive for future generations, they will lose themselves to history. We will forget the hope that they once brought with them. Their presence in our lives reminds us that we all dream we can achieve the impossible.”
The Ninja Nation will be able to access Comics Period’s latest blog and video posts in the RSS feed to the right and we will also spotlight new video releases as they come out. Additionally, we will be featuring previously released videos over the next couple of weeks. The wonderful promos below are added to below to wet your appetite.
We hope the Ninja Nation is as pleased to welcome ComicsPeriod.com aboard as we are. With the addition of their top notch videos and Bill & Wes’ gaming and comic book podcasts from Enchanted Grounds, the fun factor continues to expand here in the ninja lair. Enjoy!
