What it is. My name is Kiel, former News Editor of CBR, now staff writer and teacher.

Before I worked for CBR, I was a staff writer at something called Wizard Magazine that used to be around comic shops and stuff.

Aside from the comics stuff, I'm somewhat diligently pursuing a masters degree in writing for children. I live in Chicago now but originally hail from the hardest working town in America: Flint, Michigan. If you ever meet me, remember that I give great high fives.


FIRST COMIC: It's a toss up between "Batman" #436 and "Web of Spider-Man" Annual #4. I bought them both in the same summer, and liked Batman WAY better is all I can recall.

FAVORITE CHARACTER: Tim Drake, Bleu L. Finnegan, Jack Knight, Scott Pilgrim
