About R. C. Schmidt

R.C. Schmidt is an avid comics reader and writer. Well, he'd like to be but raising a family of four unique children is a pretty high profile gig. Pay is low but the benefits will last lifetimes. He does find time to tweet about pop culture and the tedium of his daily existence at @rcschmidt1.
