Chris is a writer who has authored short stories, comic-book scripts and other material, particularly in the popular genres of mystery, supernatural horror, science fiction and super-heroes. He has created original Australian characters that have appeared in comics distributed nationally (Rattlebone, Pulse of Darkness, Mister Blood, The Borderlander), and he has written for overseas publishers such as DC Comics (Justice League Adventures) and Marvel Entertainment (Iron Man, X-Men). His current, full-colour, bi-monthly series Dark Detective: Sherlock Holmes, with art by Philip Cornell and covers and concepts by the 2011 Academy Award co-winner for Best Make-Up, creature shop genius Dave Elsey, is currently receiving rave reviews and is on sale throughout Australia.
Chris is proud to appear in Artists Alley at Supanova and will be able to sign TIDES OF HOPE, the official Supanova benefit comic-book to aid victims of the recent Australian flood disasters, a book Chris co-edited with Tim McEwen, which contains a host of Aussie and overseas star artists and writers. NOTE: Chris will be presenting a TOAST to those generous contributors, and a DEDICATION to the victims of the floods, on the Friday night of both Supanova Brisbane and Supanova Melbourne 2011.
Also at Supanova, Chris may hint at his latest Marvel story; a new, issue-length tale featuring one of their longest-standing characters!
