is one of my favourites. I also love contemporary horror… Korean horror and British horror and American horror. British horror will take its time in developing characters, and the stories go a little more in depth. Korean horror is genuinely horrifying. And American horror is very bloody.
Favourite SF/fantasy TV shows
Doctor Who is one of my favourite shows. I know a lot of the current casts, and one of the most genuinely embarrassing moments of my life was being at Comic-Con and running into Matt Smith while dressed as David Tennant and having to explain it. It’s like running into your current girlfriend with your ex-girlfriend: “I have a bow tie too! I just didn’t bring it!”
Favourite SF/fantasy comics and books
I love Saga, Y: The Last Man, Locke & Key, Sweet Tooth… I still love Pet Sematary. It is a phenomenal book; and when I was getting bullied in school I was very smug about my giant pet sematary. I love that kind of classic Stephen King horror.
Favourite SF/fantasy hero
I’ve always loved characters that were able to outsmart people without having to resort to playing the game of just beating the shit out of them. Doctor Who, Val Kilmer in Real Genius, Peter Parker… Those are the characters that I gravitate towards.
