Joshua Hale Fialkov is the creator (or co-creator, depending) of graphic novels, including ELK'S RUN, THE BUNKER, THE LIFE AFTER (all from Oni Press); PUNKS and ECHOES (from Image, and KING (from Jet City Comics).
He also served as a writer on the Emmy Award Nominated animated film Afro Samurai: Resurrection, and as Executive Producer of the cult hit LG15: The Resistance web series. He's written for NBC's CHICAGO MED and SYFY's upcoming INCORPORATED.
He has written comics for companies including Marvel, DC, Legendary, Wildstorm, IDW, Dark Horse, Image, Tor Books, Seven Seas Entertainment, Del Rey, Random House, Dabel Brothers Productions, and St. Martin’s Press. He has done video game work for THQ, Midway Entertainment, The Workshop, and Gore Verbinski’s Blind Wink Productions. He also wrote a Syfy Channel movie starring Isabella Rossellini and Judd Nelson. Unfortunately, at no point in the film does Judd Nelson punch the sky and freeze frame.
Joshua grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, went to college in Boston, where he got a BFA in writing and directing for the stage and screen, and then worked in the New England film industry, until finally deciding to move to Los Angeles to do it properly. He lives with his wife, author Christina Rice, their daughter, and their dogs, Cole and Olaf (12 Monkeys and Frozen, respectively) and a very unimpressed cat.
