My name is Stephen Vold, while growing up I was a huge fan of the 80's and 90's generation of comic books. Their amazing artwork combined with characters featuring super human abilities has inspired me since my youth. Conan, X-men, Spiderman, Superman and Preacher certainly stood out in my life and I hope to convey bits and pieces into my future publications.
As far as the zombie influence goes I definitely saw Night of the Living dead when I was way too young which caused many sleepless nights growing up. To this day, my mind still tricks me into transforming harmless shadows into flesh eating monsters some nights. I continued to traumatize my mind throughout my early teens with classic horror movies such as The Exorcist, The Shining, and Jaws to name a few. I finally built up enough confidence around 1996 to put one more zombie film in the VCR, Dawn of the Dead. Any chance of ever being normal was forever squashed that day. From that day forward it's been all things zombie.
