Self introduction articles seem to be the norm for Comic Booked so here it goes….
My name is Rob. All my life, no matter how hard I tried to fight it, I’ve been a nerd. I grew up watching Star Trek: The Next Generation with my parents and X-Men The Animated Series with my friends. At one point or another through my life I’ve been obsessed with virtually every facet of nerd culture; from CCG’s to tabletop RPG’s, sci-fi and fantasy to video games and of course comic books.
When it comes to comic books I most enjoy the relatively obscure characters and books that don’t get publicity. While it was running Secret Warriors was the book I most looked forward to seeing in my pull box every month. This passion for under rated and sadly under read books should speak for itself through my writing here at Comic Booked! Of course I follow better known titles as well. I’d be lying if I said I don’t read every currently running X-book religiously, or that I haven’t read every Avengers book published since before Civil War. While I enjoy these titans of the comic book world my allegiance lies with the underdogs.
In addition to being a nerd I am also an avid heavy metal fan. Through the course of my various heavy metal adventures it has been said that I resemble a wrecking ball in a mosh pit, something I take as a compliment. This compliment eventually became something of a nickname of mine. Combining this nickname and my love of obscure characters into a Comic Booked handle happened so naturally it was almost unintentional.
I’ll see you guys next Wednesday
