Michael Allred

Michael Allred

Comic Artist        "Zane" Michael Allred has done many things in life. So much, in fact, that some might call him a "Renaissance man". A quick look at his resume reveals work as an artist, writer, film-maker, actor, musician, producer and publisher. With successful runs on Marvel's X-Statix and X-Force, as well as his own titles Madman and The Atomics, Allred has established himself a place in comics with his timeless style and vibrant, kinetic energy.  The next project on the horizon for cartoonist Mike Allred is The Golden Plates: The Shape of All Things. It is an adaptation of The Book of Mormon, and is scheduled to begin coming out in October from his own AAA Pop Comics.

Richard Comely

Comic Artist Captain Canuck creator Captain Canuck was "born" in 1971 when art student Ron Leishman met Richard Comely.
