Mike began his comics

career at the age of

14, breaking in as an

inker. Growing up in

a small town, Mike

found tutelage under

Neil Vokes and Adam

Hughes, while corresponding

with Nexus

creators Steve Rude

and Mike Baron. After

years working in indie press, his first big

break was as an inker on Daredevil, and

shortly after as penciler/inker on DC’s version

of Judge Dredd, then Foot Soldiers at

Dark Horse Comics. During the mid-’90s

comics crash, Mike moved back into indie

comics, starting on his path of creatorowned

comics with Ship of Fools, co-created

with Bryan J.L. Glass. While drawing

Ship of Fools, Mike continued with other

paying work, such as inking Neil Vokes on

Ninjack and drawing Bulletproof Monk, which

later became a John Woo film. Business

was slow when Mike experimented with a

new, simpler style of drawing, and began

developing several projects, including The

Mice Templar, Hammer of the Gods, Quixote,

and what would become Powers with Brian

Michael Bendis, whom Mike had met several

years earlier.

Powers has been nominated for a Harvey

Award and won an Eisner Award for best

new series. With Powers ongoing, Mike has

since tackled several other projects, including

Hammer of the Gods, Parliament of Justice,

Hellboy, Catwoman, 86 Voltz: The Dead Girl,

The Goon, Quixote, Magician Apprentice (with

Bryan J.L. Glass) The Cross Bronx, The Darkness,

The Spirit, Red Sonja, and Rapture with Taki

Soma. His writing stint on the final run

of the original Thor as well as on Thor: Blood

Oath has been widely acclaimed. Beta Ray

Bill and Ares are amongst his other Marvel

Comics writing credits.

Mike is currently working on The Mice

Templar, The Victories for Dark Horse Comics,

Takio and Powers with Brian Bendis, all creator

owned titles
