Comic Book Curious

About Us

Remember when being a nerd was frowned upon?  Before everyone was “nerding out” about what they’re passionate about? When wearing a Spiderman T-Shirt was only for geeks? Those days are long gone, and the world of superherodom, Pop-Culture and Gaming is booming, both in comics and on screen. Plus, there is soooo much more content to highlight beyond what the vast majority may be aware of! We are ready! 

Comic Book Curious (CBC) is a fun and safe place for ALL nerds — old and new! We will offer a deeper dive into the human interests stories of nerd culture. Of course, we’ll cover fun facts and stories about the creators and performers behind the products we love as well.


Why are these stories beloved and important? How do they correlate to our daily lives?

Our site will have interviews with mainstream and indie comic book creators, including the ones behind the scenes that don’t come to mind at first. We’ll enthusiastically dive deeply with famous actors, writers and directors that you love.

We already have a dozen highly talented and amusing bloggers that will write about movies, comics, table top/video games, cosplay and other human interest stories.

Why Follow us?

Diversity, inclusion and representing underrepresented creators (and fans) will be some of our core values. CBC will be a fun and safe space for people to learn, share, contribute and feel fully seen and heard. No trolling here!

You’ll be able to engage with our different content on our website, on social media, on YouTube and from podcasts. If you’d like we’ll keep you updated on what we’re up to, please share your email.

We’re excited to learn more about you and share some inspiration!

Nate Lombardi


Nate Lombardi thought of this crazy online magazine because he had some serious nerd envy. He was watching the Avengers films again with his girlfriend, and didn’t know nearly enough about this world. He works with underserved youth in New York and Flint and loves to find ways “To put spinach on their pizza.” 

When Black Panther and Wonder Woman came out...he and his students nerded out about them, and it changed his life. Now, with his non-profit The Groovy Projects, he’s creating an innovative superhero universe with some awesome people, and a cool national music video competition. 

Nate’s performed with some awesome people in NY. He loves long walks with audible books, volleyball, movies, storytelling, and social impact. You’ll find him in Harlem, LA, San Diego or Allentown at any given time. (Nightcrawler ‘tings)
