About the blogger

The Comics Curmudgeon is updated daily (if all goes well) by Josh Fruhlinger.

Josh was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, leaving him with a love of chicken wings and a tendency to say “pop”. He taught ancient Greek and Roman history to undergraduates before fleeing from academia in terror; worked for a failed San Francisco dot-com that neglected to supply him with stock options or an Aeron chair; lived in Berlin, where he mostly ate Indian and Ethiopian food; and finished in third place on his sole Jeopardy! appearance (the correct answer was “Golda Meir”).

He lives in Los Angeles with his wife Amber and his cat Hoagie. He’s been reading the entire comics section every day for as long as he can remember.
