Top 3 Comics – Batman, Manhattan Projects, Saga
I have been been reading comics since I was 8, 9, or 10 years old (I have a bad memory). I fell in love with John Byrne’s Man of Steel series and his Superman was the first character I followed in comics. I am more of a Batman guy now, but Supes always has a spot near the top of my list. After realizing at a relatively young age that I would never be the comic artist/writer superstar I aspired to be, I had a short but glorious career in archaeology before becoming an IT professional. My passion for comics, while always there, reawakened with a passion after rediscovering my love of art. After someone in the industry did something really cool for me, Comics For Heroes was born out of a desire to share my passion for comics and bring the joy and fun that I find in them to those not necessarily able to enjoy it on their own.

Top 3 Comics – Batman, Morning Glories, Locke & Key
Jessica just started reading comics in the last year. Her perspective as a new reader and someone who never gave comics a thought previously is very important to what we do here at Comics For Heroes. Jessica is our news and features editor, but also does a lot of the grunt work for us – contacting groups and organizations about donations, sending emails, making sure the stuff I write is coherent, and is always there to bounce ideas off of.

Top 3 Comics – Saga, Batman, Hawkeye
After watching the nineties X-Men & Batman cartoons I became obsessed with Detective Comics and Uncanny X-Men books. It was all I read but when I went to university, my Mum forgot to pick them up. My comics were gone and I was devastated. Fast forward five years and a medical degree, I walk past a comic shop in my Liverpool home and I pop in. I pick up the same comics I did back then and paid for them with my own money! I currently work as a surgeon and have my own blog which I obsessively write for. This has meant I read pretty much everything and love all types of comics. Most importantly I feel comics are not appreciated highly enough in the literature and art world. My aims are to spread the love far and wide and this is the reason I started writing for this blog. I want new people to read comic books and I want them to spread the word. I am very supportive of the aims of this site and am happy to contribute as best I can. So go out there and read some comics! My personal blog is here.
