Who am I?

Yes, this is a deliberate Les Miserables reference. I do those a lot. Anyway, my name is Alexander, and I have been reading comics for most of my life. I am also a gamer, a singer, a Japanophile (which is NOT a bad thing, despite the associations people have with that suffix), a semi-political junkie, and cat fanatic. But not like that crazy woman in that viral eharmony video, I swear. I have always had strong opinions about comic books, and I would always relate them to my friends and Ed at Collector’s Paradise, my comic book store for pretty much this whole time. But it wasn’t until Fall 2008, when I first blogged about the North Carolina Senate Race for a politics class, that I thought about blogging about comics. And I’m really glad I did!  Unfortunately, you won’t get any more out of me! Those of you who know me will already know enough. As for the rest of you, well, you’re here for my opinions on comics, not my personal life. I hope you enjoy the former!

The Comic Connoissuer’s primary focus is the critical analysis of comic books in general. That includes comic book tropes, storylines, concepts, art, and anything else you can think of. Some of that comes in the form of reviews of big comic books, particularly event books, while some of it comes in the form of essays or rants. The site covers other kinds of comic books, particularly manga, and it also covers other forms of popular culture, like television shows, video games, and movies. The next page details my review system for each of these different categories.
