Mike Maihack

A graduate of the Columbus College of Art & Design, Mike Maihack spends most of his time working on, well,  the Cleopatra in Space series of graphic novels. The books have earned him a gold medal for the Florida Book Awards, a YALSA 2015 Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, a starred review from School Library Journal, and a wealth of sharable knowledge about sequential storytelling.

Besides CiS, he is also the creator of the popular webcomic Cow & Buffalo and has contributed to books like Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman; Parable; Jim Henson’s The Storyteller; Cow Boy; Geeks, Girls, and Secret Identities; and Comic Book Tattoo. He draws quite a lot of other things too, most which he posts to the social networks below. If you want to get a better look at him or high five or something, you can find him in the humid depths of Lutz, Florida hanging out his wife, two sons, and ornery Siamese cat. Otherwise he shows up at various schools and conventions throughout the year.
