Michael Tanner was born in Great Falls, Montana—a thriving metropolis that is actually smaller than the neighborhood of Los Angeles that he currently resides in. He has a BA in Theater and Television Production from the Evergreen State College, which is also where he met Greg Smith. Michael developed a love for comics at a very early age and credits the medium with expanding his vocabulary and imagination. His first published comic work was in the Oni Press anthology Jam! Tales from the World of Roller Derby. He feels incredibly lucky to have been given the opportunity to work in a field that he loves.
