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?).

FAVORITE CHARACTER: Spider-Man
