Michael C Lorah writes about small press and creator-owned comics for CBR. Because he likes to hear himself talk, you can also find his thoughts on nearly every book that crosses his path on GoodReads. In the comics business, he has served time with Newsarama and DC Comics. Outside of comics, Mike is a father, husband, editor, and avid softball player (two-time team MVP of the DC Bullets softball squad). You can also test his encyclopedic knowledge of Neil Young music, Philadelphia Phillies baseball, and the heroic ideal of Lois Lane if you’re inclined. He will tell you that nobody will ever draw comics better than Al Williamson, and he rarely watches any television that is aimed at an audience older than the age of five.
