About Us

He is the co-author with Scott Alan Woodard of CINEMA AND SORCERY: THE COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO FANTASY FILM, and has also designed books including ZOMBIEMANIA and the award-winning IT LIVES AGAIN! He teaches courses in zombies, science fiction, comic books, superheroes (including the world’s first course in the Marvel Cinematic Universe), and many other pop culture subjects at the University of Baltimore and the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and has appeared in numerous zombie and horror documentaries like DOC OF THE DEAD, THE 50 BEST HORROR MOVIES YOU’VE NEVER SEEN, and THE WALKERS AMONG US!
