  • Profile: At 45, Mark has newsstand bought comics older than most of the other writers at Nerdbastards in his collection.

Years of sitting the nerd sidelines suddenly exploded when asked to write an introduction to an article on Nerdbastards. The rest they say in hushed whispers . . . is history.

Now that he’s older and there is a very real chance of Boba Fett getting his own movie or at least appearing in other upcoming Star Wars movies, Logan wants everyone to know he’s more than ready to strike fear into the hearts of his targets.
