It started with the Vault Keeper. It was resparked by Rick Grimes years later. In between and all around has been Matt Murdock.

I write in my spare time, so I set up my site to feature some writing. To promote the writing, I joined Twitter. I met a stack of people on Twitter which landed me the gig writing comic gonzo at The Weekly Crisis (weeklycrisis.com). Through all of that, I started thoughtballoons (thought-balloons.com), a comic scripting exercise site. Soon after, I slipped my foot in the CBR door. It’s been a long journey from fictional to factual writer but I still wear both hats, at times.

I’m the bronzed Aussie of the CBR experience. If you think that means I look like Chris Hemsworth then feel free to ignore the image posted here. I’ve lived in one of the poorest areas of Australia and now live in the capital. To experience the rest of the world I utilise the Internet. I pay the bills by primary school teaching and my wife and very young son thank me for periodically dedicating time to being an Assistant Principal. One day writing will give me enough money to retire, at the moment it pays for all my comics with change.

Jennifer Blood #1

Wed, February 16th, 2011 | Category: Review

It’s like a gauntlet of cryptids to be run and you get the very real feeling someone might just die.

The Boys: Highland Laddie #6

Sat, January 29th, 2011 | Category: Review

“The Boys” isn’t producing good spin-off minis, which makes it harder when one good, extended, scene is hidden in these six issues.

Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Lost Command #1

Vader is a bad ass, always. That’s the rule, but I kind of wish they’d break it.

Alien suits fight a lot but, apart from the very last page, it’s all very pedestrian.

The Boys #50

Wed, January 19th, 2011 | Category: Review

The real origin of the real Butcher. Be warned, then be afraid. And entertained.

Pak’s visionary tale of technology and its place in society, as well as society’s place in technology.

Starborn #2

Wed, January 12th, 2011 | Category: Review

Ben Warner gets barraged with information about everything, and this issue feels like a guide and not a narrative. Such a shame.
