Michael Leonard

A combined fandom of comics, movies, TV shows and novels have led to Michael having a very unproductive life so far. But he has decided to put these loves to some use by actually writing about them. Hailing from the distant and enchanted land of Northern Ireland, few things in life make him as happy as reading a good comic, or watching a good show, or complaining about bad ones. When not doing that Michael spends his time traveling the world seeking the means to fight injustice, or just sleeping.
