More About the Author
Born and raised in Vermont, I've been drawing comics and illustrating books professionally since the mid-1970s. My latest book is TEEN ANGELS & NEW MUTANTS, which is available here and now on amazon.com--check it out! Here's my "official" biography, for what it's worth:
Stephen R. Bissette won many industry awards as cartoonist, writer, editor and publisher. A pioneer graduate of the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon & Graphic Art, he currently teaches at the Center for Cartoon Studies and is renowned for Saga of the Swamp Thing, Taboo (from which From Hell, Lost Girls, and Throat Sprockets came), '1963,' Tyrant, co-creating John Constantine (inspiring the film Constantine), and creating the world's second 24- Hour Comic, invented by Scott McCloud as a challenge for Bissette. He illustrates books and has authored fiction (including the Stoker Award-winning Aliens: Tribes) and non-fiction (co-authoring Comic Book Rebels, The Monster Book: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and solo articles/essays for books and magazines). His papers reside in HUIE Library's Special Collections, Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. He recently contributed the short story "Copper" to The New Dead (St. Martin's Press, 2010), co-authored The Prince of Stories: The Many Worlds of Neil Gaiman (with Christopher Golden and Hank Wagner; St. Martin's Press, 2008) and illustrated The Vermont Monster Guide (University Press of New England, 2009), and is currently packaging and co-editing (with Tim Stout) Tales of the Uncanny: A Naut Comics History, Volume 1 (About Comics, 2011).
