Welcome to EXCLAMATION: MARK!

There is only one Mark Searby – man in the know, man’s man, man about town… he’s someone who knows what he likes, knows that he’s right about the things he likes and isn’t too concerned about how wrong you are about what you like.

To be fair, Mark has had his fair share of experience in such matters. A long-standing contributor to some of the nations finest pop culture and media outlets, he has been a fan and critic of stuff and nonsense for quite some time. Here on his own corner of THE CONVENTION COLLECTIVE, Mark presents a curated collection of his thoughts and musings – sometimes in the form of reviews, sometimes in the form of interviews, sometimes in the form of a little kitten that plays around your feet. EXCLAMATION: MARK is going to be that kind of page. Enjoy.
