Staff of Doom
EDITOR IN CHIEF
John Merker has been a graphic designer and S Club enthusiast for several years. You can buy his services for money at www.multicreativemedia.co.uk and for Jaffa Cakes at his house. He loves his cat and all things Star Trek related. His ambition is to one day create a Star Trek Cat sanctuary filled with uniformed felines and tribbles.
You’ll usually find him either taking a nice walk in the British countryside or crying alone in his bedroom. He’s also a big stupid head. He was foolish enough to let Aaron write this bio.

Aaron Fever has been peddling his “comedy” wares on the Internet for ten years. The first time people started paying attention was the podcast Cabin Fever, then he expanded to terrorise both www.needcoffee.com and www.asitecalledfred.com with his mad ramblings.
He loves making music videos and killing John Merker’s free time. You’ll find him either in the local comic shop or on his laptop for 12 hours straight staring at his blog’s hit statistics. Available for weddings and funerals but not any sort of wedding/funeral hybrid. That’s just creepy. Along with JJ, he hosts The Drive-In of DOOM.

REVIEWER AND PR LIAISON
Richard “Sharp-O” Sharpe is a Transformers guru, comics fan, and aficionado of all things Tokusatsu. He enjoys shaving his beard into funny shapes, fighting other-dimensional doppelgangers and pining for toys he will never own.
He cajoled John and Aaron into letting him write the DOOM column Mint in Box. The column contains no actual boxes of mints. He also speak with various PR companies to generate content and build relations for the website.

Kobayashi is an enigma wrapped in a question wrapped in a blanket. Addicted to Re-Tweeting the things she likes, she has managed to make friends with pretty much everyone. Ever.
She has run SHSOB.com for years and has agreed to inject this sausage fest with a little feminine quality by writing the column Leave Luck To Heaven.
