Nicholas Friedman is a journalist based in Dallas-Fort Worth. Originally from Philadelphia, he enjoys collecting records, playing games, having two cats (most days) and reading comics. A graduate from The University of North Texas with a journalism degree, he's usually wrangling social media and writing. You can find his work in various places, from a comics column and writer interviews in The Dallas Morning News, to gaming reviews and more coverage in the Denton Record-Chronicle, on Comic Book Resources and at GuideLive.com. His favorite game is Tetris DS, and if that sounds surprising, you should probably play it. You'll mostly catch him reading DC or Image Comics, with his favorites nestled somewhere between Nightwing and Saga, but not afraid to see what Marvel is up to.
