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.

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.

The Walking Dead #80

Fri, January 7th, 2011 | Category: Review

Trapped in a community might feel safe but it will also be claustrophobic. The fuse is set, and lit, and it’s going to be a very slow burn. When will it all go bang?

Deadpool Team-Up #886

Sun, January 2nd, 2011 | Category: Review

A very tight origin story with a twist on the end that will have you wondering where else this title could go.

The Traveller #2

Robert E. Howard’s Savage Sword #1

Wed, December 22nd, 2010 | Category: Review

This is possibly better than you want it to be. It’s a melange of awesome brought to you by your childhood but defined to be relevant for the adult you’ve become.

Proof Endangered #1

Fri, December 17th, 2010 | Category: Review

Proof is on the move to find some truth, but instead he’s working against very nasty cryptids and people who want to see him dead. Oh, and your favorite action/horror slugs are in this one.

27 #1

Sun, December 12th, 2010 | Category: Review

Thu, December 9th, 2010 | Category: Review

Imagine Glengarry Glen Ross meets Vampire Diaries if created by TimeLife. Then avoid it.

Starborn #1

Wed, December 8th, 2010 | Category: Review

A surprisingly fun story with some moments of great art. Could Stan Lee be at it again?
