Knowing next to nothing about comics, she is determined to do her best, while she starts learning about the weird world of comic book and sci-fi fandom.Zodiac Blues started in 2004, hosted on Comic Genesis, but went on hiatus until 2008, to go on hiatus again that same year until 2010, when the author restarted it from the beginning in its own domain. However that domain is currently inactive leaving only the Comic Genesis archive online.
