About Us

Comics Remixed is a brand “By Fans, For Fans“. We are not a news outlet per se, like many other comic sites. We share reported information and add our own thoughts and opinons, oftentimes using strong language that may not be suitable for all ages. We cover the world of comic books, toys and wrestling. Comics Remixed is a labor of love for the world that we grew up being fans of. For years, we were entertained by the stories others have written and drawn, the blood, sweat & tears left in a wrestling ring and we’ve spent countless hours (and allowance) playing with toys based on wrestlers, cartoons and comic characters we idolized. As adults, this is how we give back to the industry that has already given us so much and continues to do so on a daily basis. This is Comics Remixed.

Alex “Chi-Town Cylon” Martinez
Alex has been collecting action figures, statues & artwork for over 25 years. He loves the city of Chicago and everything it represents. He is a huge fan of Battlestar Galactica, hence the handle “Chi-Town Cylon”. Grew up in a 80’s. Appreciates classic and original figures but loves the direction toys have been going toward today with superior articulation, detail, and greater paint applications. His top two favorite items in his collection are the 80’s Scott Bernard/Robotech Cyclone & MP-10 Optimus Prime by Hasbro. His Holy Grail which he hopes to one day have is the GI Joe USS Flag Carrier. His 15 seconds of fame came on the TV show “Toy Hunter”, in which he tried but could not obtain his holy grail.
