Mike Podgor has been creating comics and other fictions since his motor skills developed enough for him to do so, and he has been issuing them for public consumption since 2001. He specializes in science fiction and fantasy, and even his works that should be more mundane have more than a hint of the paranormal about them. Mike typically writes short stories and creates comics, but screenwriting is not out of his wheelhouse. Basically, anything requiring deft character work or world building is right up his alley.
Mike currently lives in northeast Ohio with his significant other and a virtual menagerie of animals that do not have enough legs to go around and many of whom simply refuse to stay out of his chair, though this invasion did not stop him from obtaining a Creative Writing for Entertainment BFA from Full Sail University in 2014. Some of his completed projects include the short stories “The Gift of Peace”, “Rough in the Diamond”, and “Two Bullets” and his ongoing projects include being a founder and collaborator for The Fictosphere, where his various comics (including "Green Dove", “Area 42”, “PC/MS”, "Zeitgeist", and “Milty Reviews Comics”, all of which have growing readerships. He has also collected a number of “PC/MS” strips into a book and has an all-ages eBook comic available titled Quackers!
Mike won second place in the 2016 Ligonier Valley Writers Flash Fiction Contest for "The Infernal Dozen" and has published his first novel, Horny Demons with Issues. He is also releasing a series of eBooks titled The Cloudstar Prophecies.
