Matt Wood is a high school English teacher in North Arkansas. His classroom is littered with comic book posters and notes about Hawthorne that are as difficult to decipher as they are to be interested in. Not Matt’s fault though, Nathaniel Hawthorne isn’t too terribly interesting to begin with. Matt is so close to getting his Masters Degree in English he can practically taste the student debt that awaits him. His priorities are in the right place though, he makes sure there isn’t a day that goes by that he hasn’t read a comic book. He lives with lovely wife, Mara, and a well-behave cat named Tanner next to a golf course and neighbor that will talk to you regardless of any sense of urgency you may display.
