As an infant, Elliott Serrano was rocketed to Earth from a dying planet. Upon arrival, he was subsequently exposed to cosmic rays, bitten by a radioactive spider and raised by apes.

His tenuous mastery of the language you humans call ''English'' came from years of watching Saturday morning kid shows and reading comic books. Already on the path to becoming a member of the socially awkward sub-sect called ''geeks and nerds,'' his fate was sealed when he saw the movie ''Star Wars.''

When he is not fighting evil, exploring the mysteries of the cosmos or creating a device to prevent the Earth's destruction by a runaway meteorite, he searches for geek/nerd/comic-culture topics and events to discuss on social media and his blog "Geek To Me."

He has been christened the "King of Geeks" in Chicago by sports radio host Laurence Holmes, and dubbed "Chicago's Clark Kent" by Eisner Award-winning artist Gene Ha. He first gained recognition as co-host of the "Comic Culture Warrior" review show on YouTube. He is an original member of the Chicago Redeye's "blogaratti" group. He has been a featured guest and "Chief Geek Officer" on "The Patti Vasquez Show" (WGN Radio 720 AM), and a podcast host for the Radio Misfits Podcast Network.

He is currently in pre-production on a geek-themed television show based in Chicago.

His first love is writing comic books, with notable runs on the "Army of Darkness" monthly series and the "Grumpy Cat" mini-series for Dynamite Entertainment.

He has written for Playboy.com; is a former "geek-dating & relationships" columnist for BleedingCool.com; and is the former associate editor and graphic designer for the comic & pop-culture e-zine Comics Waiting Room.

You can buy his comics on Amazon (http://bit.ly/ElliottSerranoBooks) or at your Local Comic Shop.

You can find him on Facebook (Facebook.com/KingofGeeksChicago), Twitter & Instagram (@ElliottSerrano).

You can also reach him via e-mail at RedEyeGeek[at]gmail.com.

As Chicago's reigning, undisputed and undefeated Geek Media Champion, Elliott awaits a suitable challenger to take him on for the title. He is also accepting applications for a sidekick.
