Bio: Born in Bowling Green, Kentucky, in 1952, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1992 as sort of a "mid-life crisis" rite of passage. A comics reader from the age of four, my happiest childhood times involved fantasies of Superman and Batman (and still do, though not quite in the same way).
Starting in 2000, I began to do comics-related photo-manips, parody rewrites of Silver Age covers and stories, and other attempts at comics humor under the names "Mr. Cellophane" and "Mr. C." Most of these were posted on the GLAFiles2 Yahoo group, owned and moderated by Prism's own Mike Standish. When the Queer Eye on Comics team was being put together in 2003, Mike suggested my name to editor David Stanley as a possible member of the gang. Since then, I've been coming up with a (hopefully) humorous gay take on an old comic every eight weeks as a member of the Queer Eye on Comics Review Crew.

HEARTS AND POWERS
[Queer Eye on Comics, Posted 2/10/13]
FROM THE DIARY OF CLARK KENT
February 14, 1936
Back from the 30th Century and another adventure with my pals in the Legion. This one was a real corker. Thanks to a neat plan cooked up by Brainiac 5 and Saturn Girl, we flushed out a gang of spies who were the advance force for a planned invasion of Earth. Imra had sensed some super powered creeps were plotting against us, but they shielded their thinking before she could figure out who and where they were. She and Querl clued everybody in on…

A CHRISTMAS QUEER EYE
[Queer Eye on Comics, Posted 12/16/12]
The Setting: The bedroom of a Queer Comics Collector
The Time: The wee hours of the morning on Christmas Day
A distant clock strikes one as the QCC awakes with a start.
QCC: Wha--what’s that? Who--who’s there?!
GHOST #1: I am the Christmas Ghost of Comics Past!
QCC: Come again?
G1: You know, like in the classic A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Surely you’ve heard of it! Sort of It’s a Wonderful Life with Mr. Potter as the main character.
QCC: Oh yeah!…
PRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
[Queer Eye on Comics, Posted 10/24/12]
QUEER EYE ED: Happy Halloween, Queer Eyers! In honor of the occasion, I’ve lined up a very special guest for what I’m sure will be an unforgettably eerie interview. So, without any agonizing ado, please welcome the Frankenstein Monster!
F: Heh, heh. Oh, do calm down dear fellow. Just a little drollery on my part. But, after all, you did call me a monster!
QEE: Goodness, so I did! Please forgive me. What name do you prefer?
F: Well, my father never…
