More About the Author

Mark Andrew Smith is an award winning American comic book author and graphic novelist.

In 2004 Smith caught the attention of Image Comics Publisher Erik Larsen and then Executive Director Eric Stephenson who picked up his and Dan Hipp's first comic book series titled the Amazing Joy Buzzards.

Smith is the co-creator and editor of the Popgun Comics anthology. Popgun won the Harvey Award for Best Anthology in 2008. Popgun volume 2 was nominated for Best Anthology of 2009. Popgun volume 3 won the Eisner Award and was nominated for the Harvey Award for Best Anthology of 2010.

Mark Andrew Smith wrote the original graphic novel Aqua Leung, published in April 2008. Aqua Leung was nominated for a Yalsa award for best graphic novel for teens. Also in 2008 Smith wrote Kill All Parents, a 38 page one shot about superheroes whose parents are killed by a secret government program, drawn by Marcelo Di Chiara, also for Image Comics.

In 2009 Smith released "The New Brighton Archeological Society" stemming from a series of short stories in Popgun with artist Matthew Weldon. The New Brighton Archeological Society follows a group of children whose parents are the greatest archeologists in the world. When their parents are lost on an expedition, the children must finish their parents' work, collect the books of magic, and defeat their parents' nemesis. The New Brighton Archeological Society was selected as "Best All-Ages Comic" of 2009 by MTV Splash Page. The New Brighton Archeological Society received two Harvey Award Nominations in 2010.

2010 saw the release of Smith's YA series "Gladstone's School for World Conquerors".

Format: Paperback
Sometimes you come across something that fits you like a glove. That's the feeling I had with this book. I had looked at this book a few times and wonder if I should get it. I went with my better instincts and picked it up. I'm glad I did. It was a fun read, and it made me want more. It's strange, but the book had a great way from page one of getting you involved in the story and sinking you further into it. To the point of where later on in the book there is a reference to events that happen early in the book, and I felt amongst friends reminiscing about the crazy good times we had. This book has action, monsters, rock n' roll, speedy chases, and a mystery Mexican wrestler. It's a great read, and I can't wait to read the next installment! Overall, it was a highly enjoyable read, the artwork is great, and it was a lot of fun to take the journey with the Amazing Joy Buzzards and their adventures! Rock on to a great graphic novel!
