About the Staff:

Derek McCaw - Editor-In-Chief

Derek works as a high school Drama teacher, father, writer, actor, and occasionally funny comedian. As an actor/comedian, he has been found at ComedySportz, The Big Stinkin’ Improv Festival, and the HBO Workspace. As part of the comedy troupe Mumblypeg, he even has a few copies of his comedy album left. As a writer, his rantings have been published on ActionAce, Daily Radar, Fanboy Planet, Once Upon A Dime, and The Wave, while a series of short one-act plays of his had a successful run at City Lights in December 2002. Thanks to Fanboy Planet, he has fulfilled many of his childhood dreams, including becoming a presenter on BBC-Radio.

Derek wrote two issues of Tony Loco with Mark Teague for Illusive Arts Entertainment, edited Sparks for Catastrophic Comics (now a major motion picture!), wrote The Greatest American Hero with William Katt and Chris Folino for Catastrophic/Arcana, and contributes stories to Bela Lugosi's Tales from the Grave from Monsterverse Comics. He has certification from UCLA's professional screenwriting program, and hopes that's not the end of the story.


Ric Bretschneider - Podcast Producer, Columnist, Writer

Fanboy Planet moral compass, Ric pops up where you least expect him. Let's just say that he knows where the bodies are buried, and leave it at that.

Nate Costa - Podcast Team, Roving Reporter in Los Angeles

First encountered at WonderCon years ago politely complaining about the Red Hulk. Nate manages to pass as a respectable member of society and has a prodigious collection of Nike shoes. He has also held Robert Kirkman's Inkpot Award.

Troy Benson - Ranting Editor

Mild-mannered Troy Benson runs a petting zoo and offers legal advice to comic book characters.

Christopher J. Garcia - Wrestling Editor

Harlan Ellison once called Chris Garcia "the devil." Who are we to disagree?

Jamie Kelwick - British Editor

By day, Jamie eats, breathes and sleeps film, working as a movie critic for BBC-Radio Humberside and teaching feckless youth about the beauty of French New Wave Cinema. At least, that's what he does when I imagine his job.

Lon Lopez - Moron Life Editor

Actually, Lon thinks he runs Moronlife.com, but for a while was part of the Fanboy Planet podcast crew. He currently works on his own projects in addition to directing and co-starring in the ongoing webseries Moron Vs. Fanboy.

Steph Rodriguez - Podcast Archivist, Lighting Designer and Writer

It all started because she had the makings of a Zorlac, remembering obscure details of podcasts and then knowing the difference between an ellipsoidal and a Source-4. Now she photographs conventions and works in a super secret day job.

Mish'al Samman - Asia Editor

Mish'al has now moved to the greater Los Angeles area, where he still steeps himself in Japanese culture while taking acting classes.

Deb J. Draisin - East Coast Reporter

Deb knows the most about the intersection between musicians and comics, so tends to cover that scene. She has also been at the last four New York Comic-Cons for us, AND COUNTING!

David J. Fowlie - Keeping It Reel

David kindly lets us steal his movie reviews on a regular basis.

Michael Goodson - Co-Founder

Michael Goodson was born and lives in San Jose, California. Having followed wrestling since childhood, he put his talents to use in a weekly wrestling column for DailyRadar.com. Then they went out of business. In 2000 Derek and Michael started FanboyPlanet.com. After writing hundreds of wrestling columns, Buffy and Justice League reviews, Michael sold his share in the company in 2006 for one box of HeroClix. It contained 4 rookie Aquamans.
