BIOGRAPHY

Vivek drinks more than he should and hates on things less he could. Writer, editor and story teller, Vivek lives in India and it's been weird. He has survived one monkey attack, an amorous camel and two sinking houseboats. He used to teach writing to undergrads, write poetry in Buffalo and crave dumplings all the damn time.

INTERESTS

What are some of your favorite movies of all time?

Flash Gordon, Bubba Ho-Tep, Tampopo, Enter the Dragon, The Raid, Strange Days, In the Mood for Love, Dead Man

What are you watching on TV right now?

I tend to catch up on shows late, so I could list what I'm not watching, which would seem to be everything good.

What books or comics are you reading right now?

I'm almost done with this year's Booker Longlist. On the funnybook front, Brandon Graham's Prophet has been outstanding. I think Rucka and Lark just wound up the first arc of Lazarus, so I should get on that. The Elephantmen hasn't been as genre-defying as I'd like, but consistently good. Young Avengers is easily the flyest book out right now. Saga is every trope executed perfectly with Fiona Staples redefining 'casual sci fi'. I'm waiting for Constantine to find its voice and be half as interesting as Justice League: Dark is. HAWKEYE.

What are some of your favorite video games of all time?

Psychonauts, but some nights I've woken up screaming 'Zerg Rush'. R* San Diego's been doing some great things with narrative as is SUDA 51 with subverting genres. Botanicula is genius as was Machinarium. Full Throttle. Aways Full Throttle.
