Jeremy Tarney is the CFO and deadlift champion of Ultimate Comics and the North Carolina Comicon. In 2002 he was one of the very first customers to shop at the newly opened Ultimate Comics, and quickly spent every single dollar that he had ever earned buying back issues. Before long the store’s owner, Alan Gill, offered him a job (so as to have continued income to pay for comics!) After a quick 4-year degree from Appalachian State, he immediately resumed his lifelong mission to share his love of comics, and everything about them with the world. He is currently the host of the Ultimate Comics Live Show on Tuesday and Thursday nights, and he oversees all the funny book madness that is Ultimate Comics and ultimatecomics.com.
