Hello, my name’s Alex and I take issue with a lot of things.
I’m a 22 year old ‘man’ from Glasgow, Scotland. I’m also an English and Journalism & Creative Writing graduate. I quite like comics and with any luck, I’ll write them professionally one day.
This is an artist’s rendition of me. Apart from the party hat it is fairly accurate. I’m wearing a party hat because it was my birthday. Also I was the artist.
I mainly write reviews for comic book issues but I also review books from time to time. My reviews will favour DC Comics more, this is just because those are the comics I tend to read. I do read some Marvel and Image, even Heavy Metal, but I can’t afford to keep up with everything. I also write reviews for DC Comics News, which can be found here: http://dccomicsnews.com/author/alex-mcdonald/
The other column you’ll find here is My Issues. These are opinions I have somewhat structured into a ‘coherent’ argument. Sometimes they’ll be serious, other times they’ll be sarcastic. It’s up to you to decide which is which.
If you ever have any constructive criticism, or feel like getting in touch then please do so. I would appreciate any feedback.
