Bio: A long-time comic book fan, Michael spent his youth (and all of his years since) immersed in this most compelling art form. Soon, his fancy turned to a broader range of popular culture, from science fiction to animation. An avid Warner fan and DisneyWorld aficionado, Michael, an attorney specializing in trademark, copyright, patent and entertainment law, has managed to merge his career with his hobby, representing creators and companies in the comic book industry.
