"Horton and Ahn deliver great action, crazy technology, and hot girls, but that doesn't cause it to read like some manga fan-fiction. The plot thickens almost as quickly as the action moves, and leaves you with a cliffhanger I dare you to say no to." Tim Demeter, editor, Graphic Smash (www.graphicsmash.com) on Strongarm
Steve Horton has years of experience writing for and about comics. He co-created the manga Strongarm with Dave Ahn for Image Comics, one of the biggest mainstream comics publishers in North America.

Steve also publishes downloadable PDF comic books as Smashout Comics (www.smashout.net) on the free e-book site Wowio (www.wowio.com).
