"Supergirl's" Red Tornado Knocks the Wind Out Of Kara Zor-El
TV, Comic Books
I am an adult male human who makes a living by writing things down in such a way that they appear to be worth paying for. I used to work as a software developer for Yahoo!, but a man can only take so much computer programming before he goes mad, and that's pretty much what happened. When I woke up, I had somehow become a freelance writer, so I decided to stick with it and see where I ended up. And where I ended up is here.
As well being a reviewer for CBR, I've written for such media outlets as Film4, Wired UK and Comic Heroes Magazine - sometimes about comics, sometimes about other things, but always with the knowledge that even writing about the most boring subject is considerably more fun than actually working for a living. Just to prove I'm a well-rounded individual, my interests outside of comics include stand-up comedy, F1 racing and cosmology, and my favourite novelists are Douglas Coupland, Will Self and Chuck Palahniuk.
FIRST COMIC: Probably some random issue of "The Beano," but the first US comic I ever bought was "Weapon X" #3 (the 1995 "Age of Apocalypse" series).
FAVORITE CHARACTER: The X-Men (specifically Rogue, Gambit, Psylocke and Wolverine)
