Chris Lynch developed a love of comics from an early age, starting out with the likes of Spider-Man and Batman before growing up into titles such as Watchmen and The Invisibles. Chris believes comics are a unique format, arguably older than the written word and deeply, deeply powerful in their ability to tell stories and that some of the most iconic and memorable characters of modern times have been born in the pages of comic books.
Chris has stayed away from the tights-and-capes crowd and written mostly in the horror and sci-fi genres; firstly as co-creator and lead writer of the UK horror comics anthology Monkeys with Machineguns and then working with publishers including The Judge Dredd Megazine, Arcana, Metaverse, The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel, 2026 Books, Accent UK, Something Wicked, The Sorrow, The Mad Scientist Journal, KZine, Wilde Times, Another Realm, 10thology, Midnight Hour, and Insomnia Publications.
Chris Lynch’s 2010 graphic novel “The Dark”, illustrated by Rick Lundeen, was published by Markosia Publications. It featured shortly after as one of the first releases on Sony’s own digital comics platform before being re-released on Comixology and Amazon Kindle a few years later.
