The Usual Gang of Misfits
Adam Bishop is an 80’s kid that has been stuck in the 90’s for almost two decades. If you want to know more about movies like Highlander, Waterworld, or Hackers; TV shows like Sliders, The Odyssey, or The Anti-Gravity Room; and best of all… Comics! Adult comics, licenced comics, or bad 90’s comics then Adam is your guy. The amount of useless trivial knowledge Adam has packed into his brain will shock and disgust you. Adam is part of the newest addition to The Hey Kids Comics Radio Show hosting team and somehow has not been banned from the air after many of his short lived topic changes to Adult Comics.
Martin Boruta has been reading and collecting comics for over 40 years. A lifelong fan of Captain Canuck, Martin is the curator of The Unofficial Yet Definitive Captain Canuck Comicography website. Since 2016, Martin has been reviewing comic books and highlighting great new Kickstarter projects at First Comics News. Recently Martin expanded his writing and contributes to Sequential Magazine. For kicks, Martin enjoys teaming up with his pals and sharing hosting duties on The Hey Kids Comics Radio Show broadcast on Trent Radio 92.7 CFFF FM in lovely Peterborough, ON Canada and available at First Comics News & The Hey Kids Comics Radio Show website. Martin is an active member of the Canadian Comic Book Alliance and can be found participating in the lively conversations on the Peterborough Comic Book Collectors Facebook group. In his various adventures, Martin has demonstrated an innate ability to spell “Erik Larsen” incorrectly.
Dan makes promises, promises to give Marty a bio for this page but so far … those promises are empty. But he does have a really cool banner for comic book convention appearances.
