Biography edit

Born in Oregon, Graham grew up in Seattle, Washington, where he was a graffiti artist.[1] He wrote and illustrated comic books for Antarctic Press and Radio Comix, but got his start drawing pornographic comics such as Pillow Fight, Perverts of the Unknown and the initial issue of Multiple Warheads (Warheads would go on to become an ongoing, more mainstream comic published by Oni Press in 2007).[2] In 1997, he moved to New York City where he found work with NBM Publishing and became a founding member of comics collective Meathaus. His book Escalator was published by Alternative Comics in January 2005, when he returned to Seattle. His book King City was published by Tokyopop in 2007 and was nominated for an Eisner Award.[3] In May 2009 Graham announced that King City would continue publication at Image Comics and his Oni Press title Multiple Warheads would resume publication after a delay, this time in color.[4]

At Image he led the revival of Prophet, a sci-fi reboot of Rob Liefeld's 1990s series, with a rotating roster of artists including Giannis Milonogiannis, Farel Dalrymple, and Simon Roy.[5][6][7]
