"Johnny Techman" Strikes Again!

Roger J. Berton is one creative guy.  His skill in graphic arts may only be eclipsed by his enthusiasm for pop culture and a wide variety of collectibles.

Roger describes himself as an, "explorer of the multiverse and other infinite impossibilities.   I guess you could call me an MOR geek or nerd," he explains, "with MOR meaning Middle Of the Road."

Various Batman vehicles, 3-D Iron Man poster, collectibles from Sin City, Machete, etc.

Pins from the 1990 Dick Tracy film, cartoon characters, etc.

Wall to wall, shelf to shelf, Roger has a little bit of everything.  Well, maybe not quite everything, but his tastes in pop culture and related memorabilia are so varied, you can really see why he refers to his himself as a middle of the road, "explorer of the multiverse." 

The corner of Roger's bedroom, his "Fortress of Solitude."

Classic G. I. Joes, alien skull, Darths Vader & Maul, a Borg sphere, etc.

Speaking of the final frontier, Roger's love for both Star Trek and Star Wars is well represented in his collection.  And of course, there's always plenty of room for a whole lot of superheroes, too.  Whether its DC, Marvel, Darkhorse, or any comic book publisher that delivers similar quality, you can definitely count "Johnny Techman" in.

Like many fans of the Star Wars films, the desert world of Tatooine, with its twin suns (home to generations of the Skywalker and Lars families), holds particular interest for Roger.  Here he displays his extensive Tatooine collection.

Like most comic book, horror, fantasy and science fiction fans, Roger loves to attend conventions.  He particularly enjoys attending the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con.
