By day, Russell Lissau is a mild-mannered newspaper reporter in suburban Chicago. By night, he battles evil writing comic books including THE BATMAN STRIKES!, THE 29 and SHREK. He broke into comics in 2005 with the lead story in BATMAN ALLIES SECRET FILES AND ORIGINS. (A lifelong Batman fan who dressed up as the Caped Crusader as a child, he can’t believe his luck.)
His most recent projects include two short stories in OMEGA COMICS PRESENTS: the crime thriller “Greedy,” with artist mpMann, and the cop drama “One of Us,” with artist John Bivens. Never one to shy away from a crowd, Lissau also leads workshops at libraries throughout the Chicago area about writing comics. To learn more, check out www.facebook.com/russell.lissau.
