To put together an effective digital marketing strategy, content is one of the most important factors for ensuring success, and that’s where copywriters come in. But coming up with ideas on a daily basis is hard, and if you’re like me, it feels like banging your head against a wall when you’re trying to come up with something to write, yet nothing remotely interesting is coming to you. When that starts happening, I find it’s helpful to put together a content report.
A content report contains the latest news and information on a specific sector. The report could be based around research for a client, or it could simply be a bank of ideas to be used in future. A content report is a useful tool for copywriters, businesses and agencies, but where do you look for the right information and how is it beneficial?

Ever since I started The Comic Vault, I’ve been consistently blown away by the amount of people who’ve come back to read my articles and given me a reason to indulge my inner geek. Each time I’ve reached a new milestone it’s been something that’s kept me motivate and I’m happy to say I’ve hit another goal of 900 followers. For people who’ve been reading the website for a while you’ll have noticed I like to connect comics and mental health together. As it feels like I’m running out of ways to say thank you, I figured I’d take the opportunity to shine a light on bloggers who promote mental health.

If there’s one thing I love about comics, it’s reading about obscure characters. The same goes for obscure teams, and if there were ever a group of unsung heroes, Alpha Flight is at the top of the list. Canada’s premier squad have been around for a long time, but it feels like they’ve never been used to their full potential. Although the team originally started out as a way of adding more value to Wolverine’s backstory, Alpha Flight developed into a team with superheroes that are worth talking about. Made up of originally of Sasquatch, Northstar, Aurora, Snowbird, Shaman and Guardian, the group deserves more recognition. I’ll be looking into the history of the members to see what makes Alpha Flight worth reading about.

We all have stories that are personal to us, whether it’s because we connect with a certain character, or because we relate to their journey. I’ve lost count of the amount of novels I’ve read over the years and I can’t remember a series that has stood out to me more than The Greatcoats quartet. Written by Sebastien De Castell, the series follows the adventures of three travelling magistrates who are determined to fulfil the final wishes of their dead king. It’s been nearly a year since the last book, Tyrant’s Throne, was released and I’ve decided to examine the themes of the series to demonstrate why The Greatcoats are so memorable.

When it comes to decorative statues, good craftsmanship is essential, which is why I enjoy collecting them. A type of figure I’ve appreciated for some time is jizai okimono, a Japanese design that was started in the 17th century by makers of samurai armour. The words roughly translate as ‘move freely decorative object,’ and the way to describe jizai okimono is a type of highly-detailed articulated statue that has moving parts. The most common designs are animals, which is why I was excited to purchase a jizai okimono dragon created by Kaiyodo.

If there’s one thing I enjoy about being creative, it’s getting the chance to meet like-minded people. Collaboration is a great way to make new connections and produce something new, whether it’s a story or a piece of art. Working with someone else helps you elevate each other, which is useful when it comes to cosplaying. The cosplay world is built on collaboration, with people making costumes, selling costumes, taking pictures and having fun together. It’s why I was excited to do a new cosplay photo shoot with fellow creatives and embody my favourite comic character.

As a writer, I’m always looking to combine my interests together and after reading a local restaurant and culture magazine by Manchester Finest, it’s inspired me to write about comics and food. Everyone loves food. It brings people together, gives them the opportunity to discover new meals and step outside their comfort zone. Superheroes and supervillains need to eat as well and there are plenty of characters who are sensational chefs. With that said, here are four of the most talented male comic chefs.
