Say “Hi” to the new Comic Book Guy

Mike — Feb. 23rd 2011

Greetings, wolf-fans. I’d like to introduce myself; I’m Mike, and I’ve been a fan of the site for some time, and a fan of werewolves for considerably longer — say around 15 or 16 years. I got talking to Andrew on Twitter, and approached him about doing some writing here. After some discussion, he recruited me — well, I say recruited, there was some biting involved — and here I am. For the time being, I’ve been assigned to review comics, and I plan to write features about the unfortunately-cancelled Willow Creek, along with the three-issue miniseries Thicker Than Blood. At the time of writing, we’re still awaiting a response from a couple of comics publishers regarding a Hellboy story featuring werewolves, and a series of issues based on the Werewolf: The Apocalypse RPG.

In the meantime, you can catch up with me on Twitter as @electricdog — with the help of a number of fellow lycanthropic connoisseurs, I instigated the #werewolfwednesday hashtag, which has become mildly popular — or you can take a look at my Tumblr, which features werewolfry on a regular basis. My most recent post was about werewolves in gaming, which drew some interest, so I figured I’d link it here for people to read.

Finally, I’m a creator of machinima, and I’ve discussed with Andrew the possibility of making a virtual video-blog for the site, though I’m still working on that. In the meantime, I made a short film based on a conversation I had about my new role writing for the site, which you can watch below.

    Awesome – I love graphical storytelling and from what I’ve read so far you have a very engaging writing style.

  • Roukas

    Virtual video blog? Yes. Yes, do it. (clandestine grin and shaky effect).

    Lots of funny and lots of raw-awesome. :) Go for it man. Lmk if I can get in on some of the action.

  • Scott

    I agree do it sounds like it would be interesting.

  • Cheers for the feedback folks, it means a lot to get a positive response. I’m looking forward to covering various comics — ‘Thicker Than Blood’ arrived the other day — and it’s good to know my writing style isn’t boring the hell out of people. Roukas, I’d be more than happy to work with you on stuff — Andrew can give you my contact info.
