Etienne Paul, CMRO Editor
Etienne has spent over a decade hiding online behind his screen name, Maidel, so now he feels a bit like an unmasked Spider-Man. He spent his formative years reading Transformers comics but vanished from the scene entirely until the release of the ultimate line. Dragged back in by Marvels movies he sort out a place to start reading this world of 616. Throughout his life he has written everything from scientific journal articles, peer reviews, idiots guides and even a couple of (unpublished) novels. So writing a few reviews for comic books should be easy for him…

Dylan Duarte, CMRO Contributing Writer
California-based Dylan Duarte has been a freelance writer for six years and an aspiring superhero for much longer. He’s covered a wide variety of topics over the years, but somehow always ends up back at the intersection of Nerd Avenue and Geek Way. All kidding aside, Dylan is a passionate writer and an avid fan of comic books, so until he can make a living out of weaving exciting superhero tales, he’ll gladly write about them instead.

Eric Miller, CMRO Contributing Writer
Born and raised in So. Cal., Eric started reading comics at a young age. Originally drawn strictly towards G.I.Joe, Transformers and Star Wars, his tastes and perspective broadened one day after picking up a copy of Secret Wars, where he was introduced to Wolverine who became his favorite character of all time. Since then, he has never been able to shake the marvel bug, or more specifically the X-Men bug. Even when he gave up reading in 1996, the rise of superhero movies in 2000, only 4 years late(which happened to start with X-Men) has kept him deeply involved in the current state of affairs….. and, 10 years later, he has decided to get back in the game of reading and reviewing the comics we all love…..
Matthew Langlois, CMRO Contributing Writer
With a B.A. in Political Sciences and a Master in International Business, the last thing you’d expect from Matthew Langlois would be that he reviews comics in his spare time. Everyone needs a hobby, right? Familiarized with the Marvel Universe in the 1990s courtesy of the animated X-Men and Spider-Man series, it wasn’t until the late 2000s and the comic book movies boom that he picked up an actual comic issue. And now it’s almost impossible to see him without one.
