John Gebbia has been considered by some as the “DAVID LYNCH” of comic book artist. His brilliant focus on detail and his mysterious storylines have baffled and dazzled generations of graphic novel enthusiasts.
John has decades of experience and he has worked on a variety of comics from Slave Labor Graphics as well as starting his own successful comic, DOSE! with brilliant writer and Tokyo local, Sean Ellis. When John isn’t meeting his comic’s deadline, he’s painting commissioned artwork, developing toys, and making plans for taking over the world.
