Jordan D. White Bio:
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Jordan D. White. I live in Forest Hills,
New York with my lovely wife, Devon, and our two cats,
Boo. I work as an assistant editor at Marvel Comics, a job I really
love. I'm originally from Connecticut. I went to college in Binghamton,
NY, where I lived
in Creative Writing. I love to be creative. I love creating. I write,
make comics, and do music.
I started this website as a way to get myself and my friends to keep
doing creative things after graduating from college. When I got into
grad school, the site's regular schedule became disrupted, and it
became too difficult to wrangle the other contributors. In the hopes
of getting back on the creative horse, I redesigned the site as
just a place for the projects I work on alone or in collaboration.
When I began at WHRW Binghamton,
the site became the home of my radio serials. Now, it is going to
house the wax-work podcast, Cast in Wax.
What are you currently working
I'm doing the aforementioned podcast,
and working. Work is a lot of my time, to be honest, but since it's
working on comic books, I don't mind.
What's your favourite comic book?
Definitely the Savage
Dragon. Erik Larsen's art
and writing are both top notch. The way he can weave a story over
a long time... it's amazing. That comic is one of the biggest reasons
I wanted to try serial writing. I do read about a million other
comics a month, though.
What's your favourite movie?
Of all time? The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Why? Aw, geeze... it's not because of the spectacle of seeing the
show in the theatre, it's because of the film itself. I am one of
the people who really likes watching it. Not that I don't enjoy the
such, too, but I think there is more to it than that. It has a lot
to do with the journey of the audience watching the film. I think
is where one of the most incredible parts of the film lies, and it's
what makes the film lend itself so well to repeat viewings. Maybe
I'll write an essay about it for the site. I was in a Rocky Cast,
the Vestal Violators,
for about 10 years or so with my wife and a number of my friends.
I also like Brazil, Fight Club, Heavenly
Creatures, The Forbidden Zone, and tons of
Horror movies, like the Nightmare
Elm St. series, the Evil Dead series, Re-Animator, Suspiria...
the list goes on and on.
What's your favourite music?
I like a lot of music, too. I guess I'd say my
favourite things to listen to are They
Might Be Giants, Ween, Elvis
Costello, Stew, and Ben Folds.
I make lots of mix CDs, though, with lots of different artists on
What's your favourite TV show?
Current shows? Battlestar Galactica, Doctor
Who, 24, House, Lost, Dexter,
Bullshit!. On DVD I love
Firefly, Mr. Show, The Prisoner, X-files, Buffy,
Angel, Wonderfalls, Oz,
and lots more. TV show DVDs are so wonderful.
How can we contact you?
You can e-mail me. My address is "firstname.lastname@example.org".
That's also my AIM name. It is important to note, however, that the
'0' is a zero, not the letter 'oh'.
