Who We Are
COSMIC BOOK NEWS STAFF
Editor/Publisher: Matt McGloin
Matt created and designed Cosmic Book News, oversees all the content and updates the site. Cosmic Book News began to promote the more "cosmic/scifi" genre ("cosmic comic book news"), in addition to building a thriving cosmic based forum and community. Since its inception, CBN has evolved into covering movies, tv, gaming and more, becoming your source for pop culture entertainment news.
Managing Editor: Byron Brewer
Former Managing Editor of the Georgetown (KY) News-Graphic with over 30 years of journalism and writing experience, Byron's writing chores include his popular twice-weekly column, What The D'ast?, characters or storylines featured in his “Brewer Report" and also reviews of a variety of titles including Marvel’s Avengers line. A member of the renowned International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors, Byron edits for Cosmic Book News and is the creator of The Wonder Worlock character. A reader of comics since the 1960s and one-time writer of fanzine comics in the 1970s, Byron is a most welcomed addition.
Assistant Managing Editor: Chris Bushley
You can say Mr. Bushley is the "grandfather" of Cosmic Book News as he first introduced Publisher/Editor Matt McGloin to the wonderful world of comics. Chris is our "street-level" expert, covering titles such as Daredevil and X-men, in addition to penning the "Just What The DOC Ordered" column. Chris' reviews have also been quoted in press releases by Marvel. Cosmic Book News is glad to have Chris "DOC" on board! His knowledge of comics is a great asset.
