the origin story
The story of Alex. As told by his wife, Jessie.
A long time ago, in a land far away.... (2013, Parkland, FL)...
there was a boy who looked at his plain white video game controller and thought to himself: "This doesn't represent ME"
He looked around his room (which was covered in Captain America posters and action figures) and realized he could create a controller that was personalized to him. He wanted his controller to stand for more than just playing games. It stood for his love of all geek culture. It also stood for truth, justice, and the American way...cause ya know...Captain America.
He covered his controller in Captain America comic book pages and on that day, Comic Controllers was born.
He believed that everyone deserves a controller that represents them, and so he continued to create personalized controllers for video game and comic book lovers around the world!
our secret identities
The story of Alex and Jessie. As told by their dog, Arcanine.
My parents have been together for basically forever. They met in high school and were instant BFFs. In 2011 they bonded over Doctor Who and fell in LOVE! My dad took my mom to prom, which I think is really cute...and they got married in 2017!
I skipped the most important part...ME! My dad insisted naming me after his favorite Pokemon, which actually worked out because my tuft is just as floofy as the real Arcanine!
Fun Fact: They've made me rewatch all 13 seasons of Doctor Who and my professional opinion is that bowties ARE cool.
