A BIT ABOUT ME
My name is Matthew Childers. I am a comic book artist, illustrator, designer, sometimes writer and most of all a storyteller. I have been creating stories and drawing in the back of books since I was a little kid in overalls living Charlotte, North Carolina. I grew up reading X-Men, Star Wars, Transformers… all the biggies and knew one day I’d make comics of my own.
For most of my creative career, I have worked in advertising and design and won numerous Addy Awards and worked with hundreds of clients. But all the while I nurtured my desire to create my own stories and make my own books. So one day I decided enough was enough and just got to work.
I have illustrated comics for Dynamite Comics, deCoubertain Publishing, Wannabee Press and created a short-lived but award-winning webcomic called Adventures In Pulp. I am currently working on my first self-written graphic novel Moon Hunters for Action Lab Comics. When I’m not making comics, I am enjoying time with my amazing wife and two kids and playing way too much Star Wars Battlefront II.
