I’m a collector of vintage and modern comics, sci-fi collectibles and outsider music and film. In recent years I noticed that my interests had become part of the group consensus of what is deemed ‘cool,’ so I decided to start blogging about them in an effort to educate and entertain the masses on all things Marvel Comics and Doctor Who.
See ma, all those books and tapes weren’t for nothing!
I’m a big fan of Steve Ditko, Bob Burden, Jack Kirby, Ivan Reis, Geoff Johns, Doug TenNaple, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Billy Childish, The Cramps (and other garage rock), Mark E Smith, classic Doctor Who, Adult Swim and other such things.
I spend most of my time watching cult films, old monster movies, Mexican Horror films and MST3K… who cover all those other things.
The only TV I watch, aside from cartoons, is on DVD from the United Kingdom, such as The Green Wing, Spaced, The League of Gentlemen, Adam Adamant Lives!, Jam, Peep Show, and Life on Mars. I have also been known to watch way too much of the old 60′s Marvel Comics ‘cartoons’.
Educated in English Literature and Theater, I’m a regular reader of Philip K Dick and Mick Farren. I am also the web developer and editor-in-chief of the science fiction anthology comic book site Zebramag.
My PSP rarely leaves my grasp (after I sold off my X-Box library it makes for an easy ‘fix’) and I enjoy playing first person shooters and anything Marvel.
I spend my days obsessing over life’s little distractions when I’m not spending time with my lovely son. Lately I’ve tried to break it gently to my comics and action figures that a new little man is on his way to more likely than not destroy them.
Think Galactus with milk breath. But he’s just so darned cute.
