The Time Traveler

IMG_3553

Hello, my name is Graeme and I am a geek.

As a geek: I am a comic book collector and student of geek culture. I have been collecting since 2002 and have amassed a pretty impressive collection of comics and graphic novels. I worked for 3 years at a comic book store in Saskatoon while i was in school. When I’m not finding out what Batman, Spider-man,or Wolverine are up to or who is going to return from the dead, i enjoy reading classic fiction. Sherlock Holmes, The War of the Worlds and the works of H.P. Lovecraft are among my favourite. I also enjoy classic geek movies and tv such as Star Wars, Star Trek and Alien.

As a man: I am a preschool teacher and husband. I try my best to bring my knowledge and love of comics to my wife and class. Sometimes I am successful, sometimes I’m not.

As a time traveller: My goal for this year is look at pieces of fiction from each year starting in 1964 and reaching 2016 as we enter it. Part of this will be to explore things I hadn’t looked at before, part will be to retouch on things I’d forgotten about, but the main reason I am doing this is to look just a little bit deeper. To discover what works inspired other works and how things that may be totally unrelated may have connections. To be able to appreciate them just that tiny little bit more. I hope that by doing this others may find what I find and may enjoy what I put out there.
