I’m a “creative”, unexamined wanderer, ready to move my soles in ComicsVerse. I’m a recent grad with a Marketing degree and I’m very excited to gain new experience and work with fellow CV members. It’s a pleasure being part of a community of people, like myself, who love and analyzes the comic book medium. Batman is my lord and savior!

What is your favorite comic book and why?

Too many to list but for now I’ll say Ex Machina by Brian K. Vaughn. This kind of comic book style and writing opened my eyes into what comics can really mean beyond the panels.

If you could have one superpower what would it be?

The ability to fly, no wings though.

What comics make you happy?

Anything by Brian K. Vaughn or Neil Gaiman. The essential Batman graphic novels are also a must.

Which comic book characters do you most admire?

Batman, Joker, Death (Sandman), Daredevil, Alana (Saga), Scott Pilgrim and the majority of characters from Fables.

Which comic book characters do you most despise?

Superman: Earth One, Earth 3’s Crime Syndicate (except for Owl Man)

What is the quality you most like in a creator (writer or artist)?

I love great storytelling and a creator’s imagination to paint a world for pure escapism.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

“Batman..” “Umm” or “Help, I’ve fallen down a well” “Well well well”

Which comic book character would you most easily fall in love with?

Batman (Bat nipples included), Wonder Woman, Death (Sandman)

Which creator talent would you most like to have?

A writer like Gaiman or Vaughn, so I can create meaningful and interesting characters, but I think I would only get to serve as a writer’s assistant to help sharpen their pencils or brains?

If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing (character or creator), what would it be?

I would like to come back as Death from Sandman, help people accept their fate and rock the black outfit.

What fictional universe would you most like to live?

The world of Fables where I’m a Mundy, but I’m cool enough that the Fables would invite me to hang out with them.

What comic is your most treasured possession?

Probably The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes. I remember reading it for the first time and being amazed by the art and the beautiful characters.

What do you most value in your friends?

I value their communication skills and easiness to talk to me since I’m often awkward and daydream my conversations away.

Who are your favorite writers?

Brian K. Vaughn, Neil Gaiman, Allan Moore, Grant Morrison, Scott Snyder, Mark Waid.

Who is your hero of comic book fiction?

Batman all the way, he’s my moral exemplar, my lord and savior.

Which comic book figure do you most identify with?

Bat..uhh..hmm..I’ll say Yorick Brown from Y-The Last Man. The character dealt and overcame a lot of personal issues, from childhood to adolescence, that I can intertwine with.

Who are your heroes in real life?

Edward Snowden, Theodore Roosevelt, but Batman is very real to me.

What is the comic book that you most dislike?

I believe there’s always some sort of redeeming qualities to even awful comic books, but I didn’t enjoy reading Superman: Earth One. I’m not the biggest Superman fan, but I felt this book did no justice to him, instead followed the path of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.

What comic storyline would you most like to change?

I would probably change the ending of Fables since I felt it was a bit rushed and the lack of an epic battle hurt my soul..patch.

Which comic book character do you think should die a permanent non-comic book death?

That’s tough to answer, maybe Calendar Man? I don’t think he’s much of a threat to Batman. Maybe kill him off and we get to meet his cousin, who transforms to Seasonal Man and appears in “Batman: The Wrath of Four Seasons”.

What is your personal motto?

“For relaxing times, make it Suntory time”
