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.

Ross Hutchinson

Senior Press Editor

Ross Hutchinson is from South Africa, is a life long X-Men fan. If he isn’t riding a tiger to work (that’s an inside joke) as Comic Watch’s Senior Press Lead he’s handing out press assignments and generally making sure people are miserable (someone has to).

Ariel Bee

Comics Reviewer

Ariel “The Bee” Bee is an old soul in an old body. She has been reading comics regularly since she was 8 (and irregularly before) so it was perhaps inevitable that her road has led her here to Comic Watch, where she writes about comics while chewing on tictacs.
