Greetings, fellow Monster Islanders, my name is Tim Knight (although you may know me as The Acrobatic Flea) and Ken has asked me to hop on as a new correspondent for this marvellous melange of outré goodness.
As a first post, I thought I'd better give you a quick heads-up on who I am and what my geeky chops are.
Superheroes are really my thing. I've been reading comics since I was about eight or nine, and playing superhero roleplaying games on-and-off since my early teens.
So, you can imagine, this current wave of comic book movies (both Marvel and DC) are making teenage me squee like a little girl. And long may they continue!
Almost eight years ago I discovered the wonderful world of blogging and have been publishing my own daily slice of geeky goodness, HeroPress, for all that time. It's moved location on a couple of occasions and is more active at certain times than at others, but it's kept a steady beat going all this time.
I'll be very excited if the site makes it to its tenth anniversary.
Although I studied scriptwriting for film and TV at university (as a mature student, aged 28), I don't claim to be an expert on film or television - I just know what I like (pretty much everything Ken and Armand profile here) and will happily sing the praises of trash till the cows come home.
Outside of comic book movies, I love anything connected with Star Wars (particularly the Original Trilogy, of course), Star Trek (again, the original trumps everything else), zombies, giant monsters and so on. And I should also add that I have an enduring, unwavering passion for Hawk The Slayer, the great sword-and-sorcery movie of all time. I have a dream that one day I'll be able to report on the looooooong-awaited sequel, Hawk The Hunter, finally going into production.
I reckon I'll fit right in on Monster Island.
