Five Star Creators-Matt Marshall

Not Just an Artist but an Author, Too

Matt Marshall has been interested in comics and illustration since he was a kid. Over the past few years, he has created three Mothman poster designs for the annual Mothman Festival in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Matt is also the author and illustrator of a Mothman novel, End of Tomorrows, published in 2010. You can order the book straight from its publisher, Publish America.  

As a Five Star creator, Matt is working on two stories based on a pulp fiction character from the 1930s and '40s. His work is unique, like nothing you have seen in the comics lately. The first of Matt's two stories will appear in the second issue of Five Star Comics, due out in time for the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (S.P.A.C.E.) in Columbus, Ohio, April 21 and 22, 2012.

Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to Matt Marshall and his family. Matt's mother, Donna Rae Marshall, passed away last week and was laid to rest this week.
