Richard Brookman Jr. (Producer, Co-host & Editor of ComicPop Library) is the Director of his local library. In 1998 he received his Masters in Library and Information Studies from the University of Oklahoma.. He has presented on a local, state, regional and national level on American and Japanese graphic novels. He was into comic books in high school and then dropped out for 4 years. During his last year of college his wife made the fatal error of letting him go into a comic book store. Since then he has been an avid fan of the medium and they are part of his daily reading.

 

April Brookman (Co-host of ComicPop Library) is a young teenager that enjoys reading and listening to music.  April is our Music reviewer of the show.  She will concentrate on indie, underground and international artists for her reviews.  She wants to spread the love of music throughout the library community.  With her Father’s influence she does read some American comic books, but not many.  Her preferred style of comic books, when she reads them is manga, since they have more stories that appeal to a female audience.  She watches anime, to her liking, and can leave some of it, especially the mecha anime.  She has been to a couple of conventions where she enjoys looking at all the cosplay.

 Logan Brookman (Co-Host of ComicPop Library) is a teenager that definitely has taken to his Father’s influence.  He enjoys American comic books, however, he enjoys the manga and anime much more.  He reads pretty much everything, with the fantasy genre being his primary liking.  He has been to a couple of conventions where he loves the gaming room and has cosplayed some.  He takes after his Father with collecting with TCG cards being his favorite collectible.  He would love to play the TCG’s, but being in rural America there is no one around who has the same interests.

 Michelle Brookman (Co-Host & Sound Editor of ComicPop Library) took a chance and married Richard Brookman.  This is the lovely woman who allowed her husband to get back into comic books and collecting.  She’s partly regretting that now.  She is just a casual observer of the rest of the family.  She will read a comic book every once in a while, but prefers her paperback novels.  She does know must of the characters of American comic books by listening to her husband.  Her and anime don’t really mix to well, with all of the screaming and yelling, she just doesn’t like it.  However, she did enjoy Initial D and Rurouni Kenshin.  She does go to the conventions with the family, but she tends to go shopping while the rest of the family enjoys the convention.
