The Staff

staffbio_frederikh2014Frederik Hautain
Creative Director
frederik@brokenfrontier.com

Frederik hails from Belgium, the land of insanely good beer, chocolates and french fries. It’s also a country with a very strong comics culture and comics have been a part of Frederik’s life for as long as he can remember. Comics inspire him because of the greatness achieved when words and art are perfectly in sync, making them an unparalleled exponent of creative expression. He also wants you to know that he’s a lefty with a right hand of doom that would make Hellboy proud.

Editor in Chief
andyoliver@brokenfrontier.com

Andy is BF’s Editor in Chief and its resident specialist on small press, self-published and altcomics through his regular ‘Small Pressganged’ column. He is a member of the 2015 British Comic Awards Committee, was a contributor to Paul Gravett’s book 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die, and was also an independent judge for the 2014 Myriad First Graphic Novel Competition. In the 1990s his name was a regular fixture on Marvel/DC letter columns although he now claims said missives were either the work of a genetically altered actress, a clone, or possibly the Andy Oliver of Earth-2.

Editor
tommurphy@brokenfrontier.com

Tom Murphy has been poring over comics since being drawn in by the promise of “Sophisticated Suspense” on the cover of an Alan Moore Swamp Thing. However, he’s never known a more exciting time for the medium. A MA graduate in screenwriting, he’s particularly interested in narrative technique and the relationships between comics and other art forms. He lives in London and works in publishing. He’s also on Tumblr.

As a resident of Belgium, Bart is our very own continental canary. With his eagle-like eye for standout graphics coupled with a strong love for solid narrative fiction, he reports from the deviate world of Europe’s bandes dessinées. He writes the ‘Crossing Borders’ column where he focuses on the ephemeral, exceptional and esoteric publishing efforts of eccentric Europe, all solidly embedded in a cultural landscape.

conoribellbhuiyan@brokenfrontier.com

Conori is a student in Manchester, a wannabe journalist, and a wide-eyed newbie to the comics world, and shamelessly entralled by all the shiny new stories she’s discovering. When she’s not drowned in studies or seeking refuge in artisan cocktails she’s blogging, reviewing and writing on music, arts and anything else quirky enough to catch her eye.

Staff Writer
paulmirek@brokenfrontier.com

Paul is a digital content marketing professional who didn’t think writing from 9-5 each day was enough. Having long since accepted his role as the requisite “comics guy” in his circle of friends, he decided that sharing his passion online was the logical next step. Recently, Paul has found creative sustenance in the small press and digital comic worlds, where it’s easy to experience the medium’s boundless versatility and meet the next generation of creators. He lives with his wife in North Carolina.

Staff Writer
jasonwilkins@brokenfrontier.com

Jason Wilkins is a freelance writer based in the belly button of North America, Winnipeg, Canada.
