    Introducing...

    Post  BenAvery on March 20th 2012, 2:49 pm

    Just quickly introducing myself. I'm Ben Avery. I'm a storyteller -- usually that takes the form of comic books (my primary profession) and puppets (not a profession, yet). I also do a podcast called Strangers and Aliens.

    I love comics books, almost any movie or TV show that starts with the word "Star" ("Dancing with the Stars" doesn't count . . . but "Starlost" does!), and of course C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tokien. And swamp monsters -- I don't know why.

    Anyway, glad to find the forum! Really enjoy the Spirit Blade podcast, and some of the threads here are interesting (although I promise not to bump any that are too old).

    ~ Ben

    Welcome aboard, Ben! Ben and I have chatted across Twitter and the replies on various posts over at the Strangers and Aliens site (Ben, you really should post the url in your sig line!).

    It's good to see you here, as well!

    I'll create my sig, but apparently for the first seven days of membership you can't post a link. Makes sense--puts a damper on people who just pop in to sell something.

    By the way, anyone want to buy my book . . .

    Welcome Ben! I love your work!

    I saw your name up here and said, surely this isn't the man whose comics and GN's I've read?

    It's great to see you here in our fun community!

    What about STARgate?

    Oh yeah. Yes. Absolutely. All the series, too! I liked Stargate SG-1's characters, Stargate Atlantis' tone, and Stargate Universe's story. I haven't seen Stargate Infinity -- but I DO plan to! And I consider Stargate SG-1's final two seasons as a fourth series, Stargate SG-1.5. As a HUGE fan of Farscape, I enjoyed those last two seasons as well.

    Hey, thanks for the compliment! It's nice to feel appreciated!

    This looks like a fun forum -- it's cool to find forums like these. Not too many around!

    Woohoo! The best show ever made in the history of the universe!! Don't know how many times I've watched it all through. I'm itching to do it again but I'm gonna try and wait until I upgrade to the blu ray set.

    I THOUGHT your name sounded familiar! I bought some Armor Quest a long time ago but haven't kept up with what you've been doing. Shoot me an e-mail if you'd ever like to do a phone interview for the podcast!

    Welcome, Ben!

    That'd be awesome, Paeter!

    The next few months are big for me -- I have a "graphic novel documentary" about the history of the Bible coming, plus the ending of Zondervan's TimeFlyz, Kingdoms, and Hand of the Morningstar, and a special complete edition of ArmorQuest, printing the entire story in color (for the first time) -- so I'd love to do an interview. Especially to get the word out about Book of God!

    Welcome aboard, Ben. It's interesting that I just started listening to your podcast just a few weeks ago. Glad to have you around. Smile

    Hey, WhiteBoy.

    What's ALSO interesting is that I just listened to two podcasts yesterday with your video game reviews in it! (You did a two-part review of a streaming gaming website.)

    See you around the boards!

    My podcast is Strangers and Aliens -- you can find it at http://strangersandaliens.com -- it's a conversational podcast about sci-fi, fantasy, etc. and Christianity.
