The Comic Book Detective


He slips between the racks of superheroes searching for the lost comics.
With great Power comes great Responsibility.

Writing. We all do it.
Here’s what I’ve been writing for a while now:


  • Anything I Type—Everyday ramblings from rants to silly stories.

  • Midnite2Six—My first attempt to tell a story about a radio DJ and his after-hours listeners.

  • The ComicBook Detective—Love. Comics. Adventure. Comic nerds. Oh, and some Mt. Dew. You get the idea.

Anything I Type

A blog about nothing…

is still about something.

Just ask Seinfeld.


I’m the voice on your radio at 3:07 in the morning as you drive your car to the liquor store and find out it’s closed.

Another Funny Story

In September I attended a comicbook convention here in Tucson. This was the first convention I'd been to in more than a decade. After spending the latter part of the 21st century as a contributing member in one fashion or another in the comic industry I'd become...

My First Senior Moment (No Really)

About Al

At the early age of 6, I remember clutching my weekly allowance, a quarter, and seeing a Mad Magazine on the spin rack at the grocery store. The cover was a typical Mad Magazine cover that had the iconic ‘What me Worry’. Mad Magazine was the perfect combo of words and pictures to help me learn to read and enjoy reading. That Mad Magazine was the gateway drug to comic books and the beginning of my active imagination. Then I moved from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest. I grew up in the sleepy town of Renton, a suburb south of Seattle. Surrounded by Boeing Field and the roar of jets from the Boeing airplane plant, I continued my pursuit of comics and discovered that reading was fun. The discovery of James Bond fit right into my world view and TV certainly helped keep my imagination active. I found what I thought would be my calling from listening to the radio. Being a radio DJ was a dream come true but I found that your dreams aren’t always great when you get to realize them. It did lead to me co-starring in a music video and when it showed up on MTV I had my 15 minutes of fame. Writing became a pastime that has since become a new adventure and I will soon be a published author. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
