    Default Introduce Yourself

    This will be a floating topic that I encourage all members, new or old to post on. Here I would like you to tell as much about yourself as you feel comfortable doing. Feel free to include an image, if you don't have the means to put a picture online, send it to me, and I'll put it online for you.

    NAME: Ben Wells
    BIRTH DATE: March 17 1978
    LOCATION: Halifax NS, Canada
    OCCUPATION: Learning the film Biz
    INTERESTS: Comics, film, music, metal work, computers, nature

    BIO: I grew up in the country, in PEI, Canada. Though now I am currently living in Halifax, PEI is my home, and always will be. Eventually I'll be back there, I just can't say when just now. I have a piece of land waiting for me to put a house on some day.

    I moved to Halifax for a bit of a fresh start. I had been working the same job for 5 years, was sick of it, and needed a change. I moved to Halifax to apprentice myself at a local post production film company.

    and look at this, I'm even beeing adventuresome and posting a pic

    Bio that's my brother's fault if I'm a comic fan now. He was the one buying comics.We started with the Québec translation of Fantastic Four when I was living in Port-Cartier, we moved to Matane, The translation stopped and it was very hard to get the original versions (I learned english by reading comics). We moved again to Québec (the city) and hourray! We could get easily our comic fix. I worked for 2 years in Europe and Africa and when I was in Russia, I quit the compagnie to move back home, Now I'm in Longueuil but I hope to go back in Québec some day. I hope one day do my own interactive comic on the net. [/b]

    NAME: Pete
    BIRTH DATE: 1/2/77
    LOCATION: Philadelphia, PA USA
    OCCUPATION: Investigator, nursing student
    INTERESTS: Hockey, Lacrosse, Football, Fishing, Brewing (Walker Brewing Studio), BMX Dirt, and gaming (XBox Live).

    BIO: Born and bred in the ghetto of Philadelphia the LCS (Local Comic Shop) was an oasis from the madness of drugs and violence that engulfed the neighborhood. My family escaped eventually and I went on to Temple University where I started as a Pre-Med major. After finding out how insurance companies make all the decisions and not the doc's I switched to Communications, Film/ Graphic Design. After finding nary a job in those fields I went to work FT for the University as an Investigator while studying to be a Nurse.
    Dating the same girl for 6 years who wondered why I was dragging her into a comic shop last week for Volume 3 #1. After reading it she still doesn't have a clue. Although she does win in Atlantic City quite frequently allowing us to "get away" on weekend excursions all comped by the casino's


    You can find me on Xbox Live under the gamertag Keg O War. Check out gamertagdatabase for more details.

    NAME: M
    BIRTH DATE: 20th March 1973
    LOCATION: Burton-on-Trent (Midlands), United Kingdom
    OCCUPATION: Retail (which I HATE!)
    INTERESTS: Writing (when I have the time - short stories, work on novels that will probably never be finished and ideas for TV/movie scripts which will probably never get written), reading (Tanith Lee, Anne Rice, Philip Pullman, Storm Constantine), internet, anime (Sailor Moon, Evangelion), manga (Sailor Moon mainly), cult TV (Doctor Who, Blake's 7, Space: 1999, The Tribe, My So-Called Life), cult horror movies, comic books (after many years away I've been tempted back by Alpha Flight!), music (Tori Amos, Jane Siberry, Suzanne Vega, Dar Williams).

    BIO: Once upon a time there was a little boy who had no intention of doing anything but being a writer - so he ended up going to University where he studied English Literature and Creative writing. With such wonderful qualifications under his belt he ended up being a part-time slacker and part-time sales assistant in ill-paid jobs to support his DVD/book/CD habits, all the time dreaming that he would one day be a writer and be swept off his feet by a charming prince. After many adventures (within his own head) the boy bought a computer with internet access and started to explore the worth therein. Presently he met a guy on there - who, although not a prince, was charming - and they got together and moved in with each other and have been living together (and incidentally working in the same shop together - with hilarious results) for about three years now and may or may not live happily ever after...
