About the Author


A playwright, comedian, and comic book writer (with dabblings in other media when the opportunities arise) - James Asmus tends to focus on the vulnerabilities and humor inherent in his characters. But heartbreak and horror pop up a lot, too. A former citizen of Cleveland, New Orleans, Chicago, and Los Angeles (in that order) . Not sure how much of an influence that path has been, it's the kind of thing people mention in author bios.
