Don't you love superheroes? Don't you think that they are one of the most are inspiring creations ever devised by man? My pal Holly does. Just the other day whilst we were both helping an old Granny across the street - before mugging her - we were talking about this very subject. Why Batman is brilliant. Why Spiderman is Spectacular. And why Superman is just... err... super. Like Holly's website in fact. Here, check out our interview for the full Monty.

2) What are your own origins, and what was the path you took to get where you are today? I packed and boxed our comic book collection a few years back, before the website was up and running and our owner, and my father, Steve, made a successful career in the metal industry. He has been a superhero fan and collector for over 40 years now, and is very happy that he can share his riches with his family. So it's a family business in a way. I went to Art College for two years while working part time for the site and once I had finished my diploma, I started working full time as a Writer for the site. Learning over the past year and a half since the site went live, I came to being the Head Writer and Editor for all the posts as well as Head Admin for all the facebook pages. That's basically my story...
3) What piece of music, movie, or object, would you say your site was like, and why? I'm not sure how to answer that questions to be honest. I mean our site is like a cool big brother that you can go to for all the latest news on superheroes.
We have 10 stunning original commisioned paintings from one of our featured artists, MUTE, with old and new actors. We have interviewed and befriended dozens of up-comng and talented artists.
Also, we have made lots of friends at different comic companies, including N.A.S Studios, KBoftheZH, Bluewater Comics and Darkslinger comics.
5) What superhero would you most want to be Holly? And why? I was just talking about this the other day with someone, I am a big Batman fan but I have always loved Spider-Man. I read the comics and he grabbed me more than any other hero. I connected with him as a teenager and have ever since. Also the suit is awesome!
7) If you was stuck on a desert island, and you could only bring one comic book with you, what comic would that be, and why would you want to bring it? Haha. If I could only have one, I would take one of my favourite Ultimate Spider-Man comics. I love the artwork and story lines... but it wouldn't last me long on a desert island...
9) In your own opinion, what is the most faithful comic book / movie adaptation? Cartoons / Live action. I think the 1978, Superman film, has been one of the most beloved film adaptions in history. Christopher Reeve played Clark Kent / Superman perfectly, and I don't think anyone has been able to be as true to the character as he did.
One other thing. The Batman LIVE show that is currently on a world tour. Is an amazing LIVE show that is the best adaption of Batman I have ever seen.
