Shane McCarthy (SMAc) presently resides in Perth, Western Australia, officially one of the “top ten most furtherest away from everywhere” places on the planet.
Shane’s first widely published work was the three-part Batman backup story Low for DC Comics in 2004, beginning in Detective Comics #797. He later was responsible for a reinvention of the Riddler character in the five-part “Riddle Me That” beginning in Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #185 and followed it up with Victims in Detective Comics #816, pitting Batman against Zsasz.
Other published works include Zombies: Feast for IDW Publishing and contributions to Event Horizon for Mam Tor Publishing, and Star Wars Tales for Dark Horse. His most recent work appears in Marvel’s Dark X-Men: The Beginning #1.
Shane recently completed a twelve-part Transformers series entitled All Hail Megatron for IDW Publishing, He is currently employed as a freelance writer, working for the likes of IDW, DC and Marvel Comics, and is still in awe at the unyielding enjoyment levels brought about by his 1970’s Atari version of Pong.
When not delving into the topsy turvy world of comics, Shane can be found “wasting time” teaching and dancing the ‘Lindy Hop’ – a 1930s swing dance which involves big pants and throwing women around.
Shane looks forward to meeting all his fans at Supanova in Perth. He will be appearing only on Saturday 10.30am to 5.30pm.
