I'm a freelance writer and editor. I'm the current Vice President of the Comicbook Artists Guild, a national networking organization that brings creators of all levels together with one goal in mind: to make books. I'm also their publications and New York Metro chapter coordinator. I'm the Editor-in-Chief of Guild Works Publications, as well as the writer for their flagship title Hell's Blood. I also work for Marvel, primarily as a contributing writer for their Official Index series.
I pick up almost every Marvel and DC that comes out monthly, as well as every Archie-proper title, and a few independents like IDW and Dynamite Entertainment. I also grab books put out by my colleagues as finances allow. Pretty much, I have more comics than a comic shop.
I've always been into heroes and comic stuff thanks to the likes of He-Man and Thundercats, but I didn't start collecting until I first played 1991's X-Men arcade game by Konami. I just fell in love, particularly with Wolverine. That Christmas, my family gave me my first batch of comics (the top one I count as my #1 being Silver Surfer vol. 3 #55 and the second being Amazing Spider-Man vol. 1 #358) and it grew from there. Soon I was getting toys, clothing, books, cards and anything else with the Marvel logo on it, being that it was the only company to appeal to me at the time(although somehow I wound up with a decent collection of non-Marvels...only one I actually bought was the Death of Superman trade). However, in recent years, the other guys have started to put stuff out I've taken a notice in so my collection's expanded quite a bit.
The Clone Saga, Spider-Girl's entire run, The Commuter Cometh, early Ultimate Spider-Man, Slingers entire run.
