Hi, my name is Mabs a.k.a Nexus Wookie (yes, Wookie with one ‘e’), I live in London, England, I am married and a father of two.
This is my blog on comics, books….and all the stuff inbetween! I love comics; since a young age I have been in love with them. As a kid I would visit my library, scouring the shelves for Tin Tin and Asterix, which I would take home and read with almost religious fervour. Perhaps that probably explains my love of European comics. I also discovered Japanese anime, via a cool magazine called Manga Mania. Within its pages I would discover such gems as Akira, Bubblegum Crisis, Appleseed and so on. I was always fascinated with science-fiction and Manga Mania went a long way in sating my appetite.
Soon after, I discovered other works, from great writers such as Alan Moore, Frank Miller (before he became a bit of a tit!) and artists such as Jean Girard Moebius (via Heavy Metal magazine) , Richard Corben, Enki Bilal et al.
Those guys, in particular Corben and Moebius, are my heroes.
From my childhood right through to to adulthood, and fatherhood, one thing has always stayed the same – my love of comics.
Through this blog I hope to share some of the stuff I’ve read. Please feel free to leave comments and share your thoughts on my blog. Cheers.
