|Mike Bullock is an award-winning fiction writer, poet and former professional musician. Born in Washington DC, Bullock grew up reading comic books, comic strips and pulp fiction after learning to read with DC 80-Page Giants featuring Batman. He’s translated this love of fast-paced imaginative story-telling into a successful career as a comic book and prose author.|
Having worked on enduring characters from Black Bat and Captain Future to Sonic the Hedgehog and Zorro, Bullock cemented his place in the annals of speculative fiction by authoring more Phantom stories than any other American writer aside from Lee Falk, the character’s creator.
His original works include Lions, Tigers and Bears, Timothy and the Transgalactic Towel, The Gimoles, Death Angel and more. Bullock’s acclaimed prose work has led to two prose series deals for 2012 with the debut of two new novel lines featuring Bullock’s own creations The Runemaster and Totem from Airship 27 and Pro Se Productions, respectively.
Bullock’s first and most successful property, Lions, Tigers and Bears, moved under the Hermes Press banner in 2011 following a feature film option by Paramount Pictures in 2010.
