SNES Omnibus Contributor Spotlight #22 - Alex Thompson

Alex Thompson is one of the key people behind PopNerdTV, a website and YouTube channel that everyone who enjoys movies, comic books, video games and the like should check out. Alex has been an enthusiastic supporter of the SNES Omnibus from the beginning and has turned in some terrific stories for publication in both volumes. I met Alex at Retropalooza in 2016 when I was interviewed by PopNerd's Cierra Caballero for a special episode of the channel’s Nerd Portal. Alex seems to always have a smile on his face, and he delivers nerdy news with the best of them. He’s also a very good writer and an all-around cool cat.

Here’s Alex’s bio as it will appear in TheSNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M):

Alex Thompson is a self-proclaimed “nerd of all trades.” He loves comic books and has a passion for video games that goes back to when he played the NES at his aunt’s house when he was only three years old. While most 20-somethings have a passion for the newer disc-based games and modern downloads, Alex still loves the feeling of popping a cartridge into his Nintendo 64 for some retro greatness. He currently works for as the Chief Content Officer, and you can hear him talk about new video game releases on his YouTube show, Now Loading.
