Editor in Chief

Matt Meyer is Comic Watch’s resident Comic Reviews Editor, host of The Comic Watchers Show podcast (@CWatchersShow), and has been with the site since 2018.

Chad Burdette

Chad Burdette

Content Manager

Chad Burdette, the Content Manager for Comic Watch, is no stranger to the world of comics. Prior to joining the Comic Watch team, he was the comic book community blogger for the Times Union, the premier newspaper in Albany, NY for 8 years. He joined the site in 2020 as part of the Press Team since he is not very good at reviewing comics. In his few moments of spare time, he hosts his own interview YouTube Channel, is a consultant for the yearly comic convention held by one of the local public libraries, and sometimes sleeps.
