(or, portrait of a fanboy as an old man)
DCU: Next Generation exists only because comic book lovers like you keep it updated with news, stories, and artwork.
The site was designed and is maintained by Sean Taylor (that's me hard at work). It was orignally designed using a combination of AOLpress and coding by hand on a (believe it or not!) 486/25. I now use a Mac G3 Powerbook, a perk of my job!
I work as the Associate Editor for On Mission magazine and provide content for the magazine's website, published by the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention (yes, I'm one of "them").
I'm also a freelance writer and book and music reviewer, and have published articles in CBA Marketplace, CCM, Church Administration, Baptist Press, and The Alpharetta-Roswell Revue. I've also published a three short stories and some poetry in O' Georgia: A Collection of Georgia's Newest and Most Promising Writers. I'm currently working on an original comic book which a friend and I will soon be pitching to comics companies. Comics stories of mine will soon be appearing in Asylum by PIN! & Ink and Love in Tights by Slave Labor Graphics. I also have an online collection of poems, devotions, and short stories and my personal site.
I'm happily married to my wife and best friend of almost 10 years, Lisa. Future comic book fanatics in the family include my daughter, Charis, and sons, Evan and Jack. Oh yeah, and I'd better not forget my cat, Merlin.
Some of you have wondered what other comics I follow besides the DC teens. So, I'll let you know my whole monthly list.
DC books: JLA, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Nightwing, Impulse, Superboy, Catwoman, Robin, Young Justice, Batman, Dectective Comics, Gotham Knights, Legion Lost, Birds of Prey
Oh yeah, I also train Taylor-mon! (Trust me, you have to click it to believe it...)
