UPDATE: "The Flash" Hasn't Cast Savitar, Says Berlanti
TV, Comic Books
Early on my mom came up with the plan to introduce me to reading via comics. Her plan worked and gave me both a lifelong love of reading and comics. The earliest comics I remember were some Spider-Man stories where he fought the Kingpin and an issue of Marvel’s “Star Wars” where Darth Vader battled a cyborg. My early comic habit got a regular fix whenever we’d take the Ohio Turnpike to visit my grandparents in Pennsylvania. We’d stop at a rest stop and I’d get a three pack of mostly Gold Key books like “Grimm’s Ghost Stories” or reprints of “Turk: Son of Stone.”
In the ‘80s I started collecting super hero books on a regular basis with “Thing” #24, where he battled the Rhino. From there I picked up a ton of Marvel books. Several years later I was introduced to the DC Universe via books like “Batman: The Killing Joke” and “Suicide Squad.” Later my tastes branched out as I discovered companies like Dark Horse and DC’s Vertigo imprint. Currently I’m a huge fan of all forms of genre comics: super hero, crime, action, horror, science fiction and fantasy
When I’m not writing for CBR I’m usually toiling away at the public library I work at or working on book reviews or other pop culture related ramblings at my blog.
