Steve J. Ray
Owner, Publisher, Editor-In-Chief. Writer, and reviewer

Dad/husband/writer/artist. Geekus Maximus. Comic book historian, lover of sci-fi, fantasy books, graphic novels, movies and music. Animal lover, amateur chef and family man. My wife thinks that I own way too many comics, books, and movies.

I think this is an oxymoron.

My mind lives in either an unfolding game, or unwinding narrative,
because, Let's face it... Earth is boring.

I believe in the strange, the wonderful, and in anyone with a strong
love for anything.

Believe in the Rescue Whale, and the Rescue Whale will believe in YOU.

Hello. I am Fay,otherwise known as the crazy book lady.

I have an entire
 bookcase of things that I haven't readyet, and that I keep
adding to.


My reading genres aren't specific, I'll read pretty much 
anything, as long
as it's good.

Yes, graphic novels and manga do count towards my reading goal for the

I read way too much, when I should probably be writing reviews instead.
I am far more emotionally attached to animals and fictional characters
than to some of the humans that I know in real life...

Oh, I'm sorry!

I got distracted by a book.

Full time dreamer; much prefer the comic book world to the real world. DC, Marvel, classic rock/metal, TV and movies. Obsessed with it all. Love making lists in my head that make perfect sense to me and only me! Prefer animals to (most) people and believe that the perfect state of bliss is feet up on the couch with a captivating trade paperback

People often tell me to grow up. I tell them I already have. I just happen to be an adult who likes reading comic books, watching cartoons and playing video games.

My wife, bless her soul for putting up with me, likes to tell me I’ve never

My kids, and now my granddaughter, keep me young at heart.

I love everything DC comics, especially Superman and Nightwing.
A huge Star Wars lover, Lego builder and serial podcaster, father of
two actual children and one cat. 

The rest of my life is inspired by the movies I love, Aliens (my cat's
named Ripley), The Big Lebowski (the resemblance isn't an
accident), Superman The Movie (my eldest son is named Reeve)
and others too numerous to mention!

I'm Jim and I'm a massive geek, which makes me happy 😊
