Chris Clow is a lifelong comic book fan, and a writer with work appearing on websites like Batman-On-Film, Modern Myth Media, GeekNation, the Huffington Post, Movies.com, and Fandango. Starting by writing comic book reviews for Batman-On-Film in 2006, Clow was able to parlay his fandom first into a job at a Pacific Northwestern comic book store, and eventually into professional writing jobs talking about the characters and stories he’s always been passionate about.
In 2008, Chris began podcasting for the Batman-On-Film crew, and helped the site cover San Diego Comic-Con International in 2008 and 2009, including interviews with the cast and crew of Iron Man 2, Kick-Ass, and Watchmen, interviewing the likes of Zack Snyder, Billy Crudup, Matthew Vaughn, and Chloë Grace Moretz. He then served as a regular panelist on the Modern Myth Media podcast. After beginning writing for Movies.com in 2011, he represented the site on the set of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy finale The Dark Knight Rises that summer interviewing cast and crew, and eventually became one of the site’s primary go-to comics enthusiasts, as well as the site’s appointed Star Trek expert during the lead-up to 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness. He continues writing for Movies.com every week with his column Comics on Film.
He would then serve first as a freelance contributor, then eventually as the Senior Editor of GeekNation.com, where he wrote on daily topics of geek-related entertainment news, as well as reviews for movies, comics, television shows, and video games. He stepped down as GeekNation’s senior editor in 2015 to take on a new opportunity at a Chicago-based publisher of business news media.
Comics on Consoles is Chris’ unique opportunity to meld two of his passions – comics and video games – into a regular discussion outlet, and we hope that you enjoy listening to each new episode of the show every month!
