I am a monster kid from Pittsburgh, the home of Romero zombies and Chilly Billy Cardille. This looks like an awesome forum. I used to be a regular on yuku boards about seven years ago and I stumbled onto this site! I am an artist, and a longtime collector of paperbacks, comics, pulp magazines, and science fiction and horror shows and movies. I have a fondness for the Universal monsters, Kolchak: the Night Stalker, Dark Shadows, public domain films, MST3K, Ed Wood, Paul Naschy, Flash Gordon serials, as well as Star Trek and Star Wars, Ultraman (and Infra-Man) and anything related to the fantastic books and cinema that I grew up with. I enjoy the high water marks of fantasy literature such as Poe and Stoker, Lovecraft, etc, as well as Dune, Foundation, Doc Smith, Bradbury and more! And I have a special devotion to EC Comics, especially Al Williamson and Wally Wood and Frank Frazetta. Being in my forties, there is still a part of me that wants to break out his coffee jar full of plastic dinosaurs! Hopefully, I will find time to be an active member here.
