Personal Quote:

I remember my first ever experience with death - I must have been maybe three. I remember thinking my goldfish bowl looked dirty, and very proudly squirted some washing-up liquid in there just to help. And the next day I came down and both of my goldfish were just floating on their bodies, dead. And I was absolutely and utterly heartbroken. See more »


His interest in comic books came after reading some of Alan Moore's work on 'Swamp Thing'. See more »
