Who am I? I’m Batman.
Naw. Not really. I’m actually Jeff Hill, the Chief Creative Officer of Comic Booked LLC. Which means a lot of things, really. It means that I read a lot of comics and books, write a lot of reviews, columns, and news pieces, and constantly try to one-up my fellow staffers in funny online arguments about whether or not Batman would win against any other character, fictional or real. (Hint: He would.)
My columns include: Baturday, Top Ten Tuesday, Make Mine Marvel Again, Independent Comic Spotlight, Stir the Pot Saturday, SuperSunday, and Independent Comic Spotlight. Some of these are regular, some are irregular (at best), and some of them died but will make an inevitable and triumphant return in the relatively soonish future.
My first comic I ever read was Robin II: The Joker’s Wild #1. And when the Joker decided to kill Mr. Freeze, take over his gang, and then hold the city for ransom, my love for the medium was forever instilled in me. It has not gone away since.
I am a freelance writer and full-time high school English teacher. As a writer (and would-be novelist/short story’er), my focus in school is also on writing. The classes I teach are composition, advanced composition, creative writing, advanced creative writing, and English 10 and am the sponsor for the school’s literary magazine.
But who am I really? Truth be told, I’m a moderately reformed frat boy turned writer/teacher living the dream in Lincoln, Nebraska. I do freelance work and write fiction, none of which is about corn or the husking of corn. My work has appeared in over a dozen publications and my mom has a binder full of printed copies for any doubters.
Anything else? Just ask. (Unless it’s about Batman ever being beaten. Because, of course, that answer is always a resounding “No.”)
