Shawn Crystal dropped into this world with a Batman t-shirt and a pencil in his hand. He spent his childhood drawing dinosaurs and super heroes, engaged in EPIC battles. The only breaks he took were the afternoons spent skateboarding while listening to hardcore and early hip-hop. He went on to study art at Towson University, where he met his future wife, Stephanie. From there, they moved to Savannah, where he worked towards an MFA in Sequential Art. Shawn has worked for both DC Comics and Marvel comics, drawing titles such as Arkham Manor, Deadpool, Scarlet Witch, Mother Panic, and most recently, X-Men Black: Juggernaut. He lives with his wonderful wife (Stephanie), and two beautiful children (Zac and Zoe). He is also the host of Inkpulp Audio, an interview podcast about the creative life, which can be found on iTunes.
