Who is Rick Veitch?

After a thirty year career in comics, Rick Veitch shows no sign of letting up. Vertigo recently released CAN’T GET NO, his groundbreaking literary graphic novel that Publishers Weekly declared one of the “Best Books Of 2006”. He collaborated with Tommy Lee Edwards on THE QUESTION for DC Comics and DAREDEVIL for Marvel Comics. His rick-for-web.pngimprint, KING HELL PRESS published new editions of THE ONE, BRAT PACK, THE MAXIMORTAL, ABRAXAS AND THE EARTHMAN and SHINY BEASTS. Rick is also the co-founder, with Steve Conley, of Comicon.com. And he’s been producing science and nature comics for WNET in New York. Right now he’s knee deep in his new series from Vertigo, a subversive and satirical look at the Iraq war set five years in the future, ARMY@LOVE.

His third collection of fully painted Epic era stories, HEARTBURST AND OTHER PLEASURES will be released in April 2008.
