Christian Read

Comics Guest

Christian has been a professional writer for over twenty years. Starting out as a journalist working the pop culture beat, he began working in videogames in 2010, writing on projects including The Secret World, re-imagining the famed Sacred franchise for a new generation, and then secured the role of head writer on Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade.

In 2011, he moved from writing Star Wars for Dark Horse Comics to creator-owned properties with Gestalt, such as the award-nominated The Eldritch Kid: Whisky and Hate and its sequel, Bone War, the crime-fiction take on superheroes, Unmasked, and the supernatural detective series, Karnak.

In 2013, he published the first of five Lark Case Files prose novels with Von Editions, and the new-weird fantasy, Nil-Pray.

He has two graphic novel projects and a space opera novel series scheduled for publication in 2020.
