Jason Furie | Editor-In-Chief + Contributing Artist

I love to write, draw, and create sketch comedy videos. Tom Cruise is my favorite actor by far, Cyclops from the X-Men is the coolest, the Berserk manga and anime kicks ass, and nothing beats a good Zelda adventure. If I could have one wish, it would be for Falcor from The Neverending Story to whisk me away to paradise.

Mark Espinosa | Associate Editor

mark-espinosa-nerd-writerI spend way too much money on comic books. Ghostbusters is the perfect movie. I love quoting obscure, overlooked lines from obscure overlooked movies. I wish live action comic book movies could be as good as animated comic book movies. I think if a piece of entertainment can show you one new thing, express one new idea, then you have to appreciate it. In my spare time, I sell adult romance items for a very friendly type company.

I sometimes start short stories and never finish them HERE

Mike McG | Associate Editor + Contributing Artist

Music, comics, movies, art & everything in-between are my hobbies.  Batman’s my all-time favorite character, BEOWULF is my all-time favorite book, I’ve got 7 guitars cluttering my apartment and I was in THE BOURNE LEGACY for 0.5 seconds. Oh, and on a good day, I can bench 205…just saying…um…

I spend way too much time watching movies and tv, reading comics, and playing video games that I often don’t put enough time into my writing.  So I figured I would start writing fun reviews and news stories to help keep my skills sharp.  I love to write, have collected comics since I was eight, love anime and anime conventions, and am into most things people nerd out over.

jeff-wills-nerdGames have always been synonymous with me.  It takes a lot, A LOT, for me to not like a game.  Shout out to Nintendo for that start, you will always have a spot in my heart.  I always have music playing, and love what the art movement has been doing for our society. Game on!

Jordan Bayes | Contributing Writer

jordan-bayes-nerdOne of my earliest memories is sitting in front of the television in my living room playing Street Fighter 2 on the Super Nintendo. My love of games has continued throughout my life and eventually I decided to combine my love of writing with my love of gaming. I spend most of my time playing games, reading manga, watching anime, and hanging out with my great girlfriend. Not much else a guy can ask for! P.S. Winter is coming!

Paco Casablanca | Contributing Writer

Hey, I’m Franco and I’m kind of snobby about my cinema (see, I called it “cinema”) but really I’m just a big nerd who loves film. I’m pretty much all over the map in my tastes. I love art house, sci fi, comedy, action adventure, documentary, classics, foreign etc. As long as a film is trying to communicate a genuine emotion or unique thought then I’ll give it a fair shake. The best films are the ones that promote tons of nerd chatter. Some of my favorite films of all time are Alien, The Thin Red Line, Hunger, La Grande Illusion, and Life of Brian.

Dan Stangl | Contributing Writer

dan-stangl-nerdDan Stangl was born watching “Twilight Zone” reruns on a wood-paneled TV. Sometimes he remembers having “X-File” themed dreams when the mood is right. “Twin Peaks” and “The Prisoner” were his homies for awhile but they don’t hang that much anymore. His soul can be found in the cosmos, come find him there.

Slinging bongs by day and making art by night he toils away towards ends no one quite understands, least of all himself. It’s been rumored rubbing his belly is good luck, like the Laughing Buddha, but there’s only one way to find out…
