Have been gaming as long as I can remember, got my first Nintendo for Christmas in 1985 and never looked back; The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Dragon Warrior changed my life. Got my tabletop start at the age of 11 when I was introduced to Dungeons and Dragons by my friend’s older brother (I still have the original dice he gave me 27 years later). I am also a part time game streamer.
The son of a US Army officer, on Christmas 1984 I was introduced to G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. Waging war on Cobra with my brother began the 80s dominance of TV shows acting as 30 minute toy infomercials. With Transformers, Robotech, Voltron, and MASK filling up the toy box and the tube influencing my imagination and that next toy I needed to ask my parents for. In 1991 I discovered comic books of my beloved G.I. Joe and that led into the 90s hype of X-Men & Superman. After high school took a decade long break from toys and most comics (never stopping collecting new issues of G.I. Joe) and thanks to a little one in my life, have rediscovered the joys of toys and comics sparking the imagination and engaging play time.
Lloyd Green made his debut in the same year as the Batman and Star Trek the television series. His most hated TV character was Dr. Zachary Smith. Even at a tender young age he knew that guy was a dick. As his young self developed and matured he read copious amounts of Stephen King novels, watched horror movies with his dad and thoroughly enjoyed the soothing sounds of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. The Atari 2600 was the gaming console of choice and for his on-the-go needs it was the Milton Bradley handheld masterpiece – Microvision! He was indeed a product of the 80’s, having spent the entire decade in high school and college. Comic book reading was not one of his pursuits until the fourth decade of his life. He preferred reading the smaller publishers and creator-owned books, but still had his favorites from the big two. Once this new hobby was started there was no slowing him down. Everything was consumed like a house on fire. There is rumour of a wife and three children but no one knows for sure. We believe he is buried somewhere under comics.
