Falling in love with comic books at a young age Dave has always been a huge comic book fan. In 2000 he began attending comic book conventions on a regular basis and in 2007 decided to begin volunteering at conventions. Dave has worked at over 13 conventions since first volunteering and has worked in almost all conceivable jobs at a convention. Through this experience he has met many artists, writers and celebrities and learned a new appreciation for the art form he enjoyed so much.
From the writing and drawing of a comic to the production of a movie or tv show based on these characters. This knowledge has made him appreciate and love this medium even more.
So, now here we are in a golden age with these characters we all know and love. With them moving from the long boxes in the comic book nerd basement into pop culture with the success of their blockbuster movies. So Dave decided to use all his experiences and love for the art form to create this pod cast. He also decided to bring his friends Ben and John along the way to help out with the fun. And together they give you the pod cast Super Hero Speak. A conversation about comic books and all things comic book related. This will be a weekly pod cast with about an hour long format.
We hope to bring not only our insight on the current movies, books and video games related to comics but also interviews with people with in the business and up and coming. So sit back, have a listen and we hope you enjoy.
