Corporal Hicks


Biography

My name is Aaron Percival - although I go by the handle Corporal Hicks in the Aliens/vs/Predator community - and I'm the co-administrator of AvPGalaxy. I also work specifically as editorial doing news posts, interviews, articles, etc and handle public relations for the website. I also host and edit the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy Podcast.

I first saw the first half of Aliens on my 5th birthday after going on the Aliens - Ride at the Speed of Fright 4D cinema at American Adventure. It gave me nightmares for 5 years until I finally saw the film in its entirety and became obsessed with the franchise.

I have worked on various Aliens vs Predator websites since 2003 when I learnt HMTL over a weekend and created a website called AvPWorld. In retrospect it was a terrible looking website but it further enhanced my love of the franchise and the online community. I became a newsposter for AbsoluteAvP (previously AvP2.net) later that year.

In 2005 I eventually decided to close AvPWorld and take on a more editorial role working for the re-incarnate version of AvPNews hosted on GameGossip. Unfortunately the administrator left and I was left to run an entire website by myself again. Following the AICN script review of Aliens vs. Predator 2 I eventually lost the heart and left AvPNews in April of 2006.

When I was contacted by Darkness in November 2006 about using my articles & reviews for AvPGalaxy, I volunteered to join him as permanent staff and have been here ever since.

I have a very open mind when it comes to the franchise so I enjoy reading the various comics and novels so I can experience other stories outside of the films. I enjoy attending various conventions and playing numerous games based on the series.

During my time working on Alien vs. Predator Galaxy I've had the pleasure of speaking on a panel at the Alien Encounters: 25 Years of Aliens Convention. I've been featured in a documentary about Alien fandom called Alien Fans by Dennis Lowe. There is also a ship in the Aliens vs. Predator novel trilogy, The Rage War, named after me.
