I’m Alex. Most of the writers here at CBR have a beat, a publisher or specific field that they oversee, but my beat is broader and more informal. I spend much of my time talking with independent and underground cartoonists, designers, comic strip creators and webcartoonists. It is, quite possibly, the coolest job ever.

When I’m not here at CBR, I work for Suicidegirls.com, where I interview people about comics, art and literature, and freelance for publications like The Daily Beast, SFX and the Hartford Advocate. I drink too much tea, meditate far too little, and still intend to one day fulfill my childhood ambition of living in a treehouse
