Mike Grell is a storyteller. Since his comics debut in 1973, he's brought his own creations and their worlds to life with a cinematic style of visual storytelling. Some of his more famed work includes:

These, along with successful runs on such features as BATMAN, IRON MAN, GREEN ARROW, JAMES BOND: PERMISSION TO DIE, the TARZAN Sunday comic strip and the internationally acclaimed LONGBOW HUNTERS, have won him the comic industry's coveted INKPOT AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN COMIC ART. His own SHAMAN'S TEARS has garnered widespread acclaim in the Native American community as a celebration of Indian traditions and lore. He's been voted to WIZARD MAGAZINE'S TOP TEN LIST OF COMICS WRITERS. In 1999, he published his first novel, SABLE.
