Comicosity was forged in the fires of the Internet in early 2012 to provide comic book fans with up to date news, interviews, and complete coverage of the world of comics. From the “big two” to independent publishers, comics is an ever-growing, ever-changing business and Comicosity brings you the best coverage, commentary and insight into the medium we all have come to love so deeply. Our goal, as longtime fans sharing ideas with new and seasoned readers alike, is to carve out a space where you can enjoy comics more — not less — as a result of your visit.

Aaron Long is a man of many loves: family, baseball, technology, and comics (shocking, right?). Raised a Marvel-boy, this self-proclaimed Avengers fanatic returned to comic reading a few years ago after a long pause and has never looked back. This Marvel-boy now finds himself reading titles from every publisher from Archaia to Zenescope, and life couldn’t be better. Aaron can be found on Twitter (@juice005) and pretty much any other flavour of social networking.
Matt Santori-Griffith has been reading comic books since his 8th birthday and consequently considers himself an organized hoarder, much to the chagrin of his husband and two fat little cats. He is a Chicago native, classically trained artist and photographer, and full-time art director for a number of national non-profit organizations. He was sure as a young child he would develop super-powers one day, but it has not (yet) come to pass. He is also apparently destined to die accidentally, buried under a dislodged stack of comic book boxes. Until then, Matt can be found talking about all manner of things he loves on Twitter.com under the mask of @FotoCub.

Mother. Comic reader. Sci-Fi watcher. MMORPG. Raised a lady, chosen to be geek. Jessica Boyd is a journalist turned teacher who spends her free time catching running noses and cleaning up messes of her four children (alright, only three are minors the other is her husband.) However, in the five seconds she has to breath she spends it almost exclusively obsessing about her comics collection she began in middle school with Spectacular Spider-man, but neglected regularly until she became an adult. Main message from this non-native Texan: yes, even mothers read, and have opinions, about comics. Also, despite her Marvel roots, she will defend DC and their crazy decisions until she’s believes them herself. You can find her on Twitter @charmingred and Tumblr.

Andy Behbakht is a young passionate comic book reader who started getting into comics during his senior year in high school and around the time when the New 52 was launched. When he isn’t geeking about superheroes in comic books or in comic book shows (such as Arrow, Smallville and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), he is geeking about writing which is a big part in his life as he aspires to one day become a screenwriter and also a journalist. Aside from his love for writing, he is also a podcaster on the podcast network, Across the Airwaves where he is co-hosting the main podcast that gives weekly TV episode reviews along with news and opinions on the TV industry while guest-hosting on some of the other podcasts on that network. He is also one of the hosts of the upcoming “Helicarrier: The S.H.I.E.L.D. Podcast” that covers Marvel/ABC’s new series “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”.

Michael started loving comic-centric characters the moment he watched Batman the Animated Series in the 90s. While his love of comics took a backseat to film, he returned to the comic medium when he began re-focusing his interests towards joining higher education. Michael (obsessively) believes comics are an underused means to diversify education, both on the grad-school and college levels. Michael adores Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Dark Horse… basically any and every comic he had get his hands on. His love even extends (again, obsessively) to eastern comics, ie: Manga. Michael is currently a University of Texas at Tyler Graduate Student, a UTT Blogger, and he is always working on some kind of insane, time-consuming project. His comic-spirit animal is also Larfleeze. Michael has a blog and can be reached on Twitter at @ComixClassroom.
Karen started reading comics with The New 52 launch. Since then, she has explored every publisher and reads a wide variety of titles. She is currently a graduate student and spends every spare moment talking about comics on Twitter and reading monthly books, trades, and digital comics.
MJ Feuerborn is an avid reader of comics, tempted into the fold by her comics-collecting high school sweetheart. She has lived in various parts of the country but currently resides in the Midwest with her wife, two small dogs, and far too many of those funny books. Some days it feels like she’s just here for the shoes and the eternal hope that she’ll be issued minions.
Aaron Meyers loves reading comics, collecting comics and talking about comics. He’s grateful to share his love of comics with all of his friends on the Internet. From Twitter at @aaronmeyers, to his new podcast, Comics Therapy with Andrea Shockling, it’s all about the love of comics. He also loves his family, especially his wife, Chrissy Meyers. And while you were taking the time to read this, Aaron went and bought all the best issues from your store’s dollar bin. You lose, Aaron wins. #AllTheComics
Roderick Ruth is a product of the Dark Age of Comic Books and a willing victim to the 90′s hologram, chromium, variant days. His passion has grown exponentially since then and is known to frequent comic book conventions across the nation, post pictures of his comic haul every week, and is unashamed to give his opinion on all things nerd and geek.
