Website: Boy Meets Hero
Bio: Russell Garcia started creating comics in 2000 when he was the inker, designer and colorist for Opposite Number Comic's The Wonderverse, but his interest in comics truly began when he met Chayne Avery (the other half of Boy Meets Hero) in 1993. Fast forward 13 years and his passion for both comics and Chayne are still going strong.
Currently, Russell is the co-writer, digital colorist and "web dude" for the online comic Boy Meets Hero. But he pays the bills by doing graphic design and photography. When he's not working on the comic, you'll find him making noise on his drum kit or jamming out with his fave video game Guitar Hero.
