Adam J. Langton


Adam J. Langton was born and raised in Southern Ontario, residing now in London ON where he's pursuing a PhD in Literary Theory. The resident comic book nerd in his hometown, Adam worked at the only shop in the area and essentially filtered his entire paycheck back into buying more comics; he expects his tenure and compensation at CBR to produce the same happy cyclical result. He has a Spider-Man tattoo on his forearm and cares about Peter Parker more than is healthy -- likely because both he and Peter think they are far funnier than they actually are. You've been warned.

The second installment of "Orchid" kicks off in strong fashion, providing fun characterization and successfully integrating new readers into an already-established world.

Avengers Assemble #1

Fri, March 16th, 2012 | Category: Review
