He created numerous characters, including superhero “E-Man.” He is a two-time winner of the Ray Bradbury Award for writing excellence and a 2009 Inkpot Award winner for his work in Comic Art. He has over 50 years of experience as a writer / artist / editor / filmmaker, and has written a number of screenplays for Indy movies.

“Starflake,” a series of sci-fi adventure novels for young adults, is about a young girl who can live in outer space without the need for life support, and is his latest venture. His “Captain Cosmos” novels are a series for young adults, geared toward boys.

Both book series have comic books as well.

SLASHVENTURES’ UNDERSCORE & TILDE

This is the St. Petersburg comic creators’ DEBUT signing at Emerald City Comics! Buy your copy of Nox the Fox, meet the creators, and get a free autograph! Nox the Fox is for a PG13+ audience that loves reading new spins on the hero genre, it was successfully funded on Kickstarter in September 2019.

Arc #1.1 kicks off with our vigilante hero on the hunt to find a delinquent that’s roaming free on the streets of Astral city. With many more characters to be revealed, and a new eerie universe to explore, who knows what’s going on behind the scenes that even our hero doesn’t know about?

Underscore and Tilde will be selling Nox the Fox: Silver Alloy, as well as custom-made dice bags, prints, variants, and posters. They will also debut their own Mini-Comics, which are super tiny and fun for children, putting in someone’s birthday card … the possibilities are endless!

Tilde and Underscore met online to make a video game that eventually turned into the comic book series Nox the Fox. Over many years and many different projects, Slashventures was born! Underscore wrote 70 chapters before issue 1 began to be drawn. Tilde is constantly improving her art via experimenting with different styles, and using her knowledge from her Dutch art school – but mostly the Internet. These two love creating new and interesting things: games, videos, music, plushies – but most importantly, comics!
