Who Is How to Love Comics?

How to Love Comics is me, Trevor Van As.

When I’m not standing in front of squiggly lines you can find me reading comics, hanging out with a greyhound, discovering new music or eating yoghurt. I work in marketing and have a background in multimedia, both of which come in handy in the day to day of the site.

I manage 99% of the website from writing (apart from the occasional guest writer), web development, social media and marketing. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. If you want to help out feel free to contact me.

Feel free to hit me up on Twitter.
