About Colin Herzog (15 Articles)
Born and bred in the Midwest, Colin has spent the past four years honing and exploring writing and reviewing at St. Norbert College, where he is set to graduate with an English and Communications with Media emphasis dual major. Beyond writing creative work for the student creative works magazine (of which he has been the head editor for three years) and reviews for the student newspaper, he works as a writing consultant for his campus writing center and has an online radio show called Culture Shock at 7 o'Clock with his roommate where they discuss and review movies, TV shows, comics and more. He loves comics, TV shows, movies, books, and music and hopes to one day work as a comic book editor--but anywhere where he can help quality stories be told will do.
