Managing Editor
Los Angeles, CA
Tempe, AZ

Hello! I'm Albert Ching, managing editor at CBR. I've been writing about comic books professionally in one form or another since 2006 and thoroughly unprofessionally for about a decade before that. In my journalism career, I've also written about music, TV, movies, visual art, opera, modern dance, pro wrestling and frisbee. I'm a semi-frequent contributor to The Atlantic, and once appeared on a Canadian radio show as a "Dancing with the Stars" expert. One time I interviewed Newt Gingrich at a Barnes and Noble.

I'm originally from Tempe, Arizona, but was lured out to Southern California after repeated viewings of "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure." By the time I figured out that most of what passed for San Dimas was actually filmed a few miles away from my parents' home in AZ, it was already too late.

FIRST COMIC: The first series I actively pursued every issue of was Archie's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" book, which was considerably more bonkers than the cartoon in all the right ways (Cudley the Cowlick?).
