CHARACTERS

CREATORS

AARON SAMMUT

WRITER

Aaron Sammut has worked in the music industry in Brisbane, Australia, as a performance photographer and magazine designer for the past 15 years. He has not worked on comics for Marvel, DC… He has read some though. He simply has an overactive imagination, an unhealthy reliance on music to get him through any situation, seemingly crazy amounts of naivety, mixed with an insatiable determination to see one of his crazy ideas make it all the way to print.
