My name is Mike Bowden. I’m 37 years old. I teach English and Social Sciences. I’m a father to two children and husband. I live in Odense, Denmark but am from London, England. I emigrated to Denmark in 1999.
This blog is a depository for things I find interesting and my attempts at at creative writing. I’ve been a huge Batman fan since I was a child and still collect the comics. I still love receiving them in the post and writing about why I still find the Batman character so fascinating.
I also have a huge respect for comic artists as I have never been able to draw myself; I love looking at sketches and other images.
Whilst at university I wrote about Barack Obama for my Masters and Jack Kerouac for my Bachelor. I figured as I’d put loads of work into them, they deserved a brush up and some pictures. I am in the process of uploading them as small chapters on the site.
I have worked for various major UK video game sites including vg247.com and eurogamer.net. From time to time my attention switches to the industry that I spent a great deal of my time investing in.
I’m also a huge football (soccer) fan and my team is Tottenham Hotspur. However, I haven’t felt the urge to write anything about them or the game itself so they are not reflected on this site. However, that will most likely change.
My other great passion is music, and although nothing is currently represented on the site, that will soon change.
Although this blog is mine, I wouldn’t mind other people contributing if they share the same interests as myself. It would also help me hone my editing skills. So just use the Contact tab in the left sidebar if you feel like writing about something you find interesting.
