HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Graig Weich broke into comic books at age 19, becoming one of the youngest artists to break into comics, drawing for one of the #1 top selling comic books of all time: SPAWN issue #30 (Image Comics by Todd Mcfarlane and publisher of “The Walking Dead”), and went on to appear on multiple TV shows.
He had a walk-on roll as one of Bane’s lead thugs in “The Dark Knight Rises” movie (Batman 3) seen here: https://youtu.be/AAxbN5PZyL0?t=360. He also appeared in the Spider-Man 1 & 3 movies.

-Artist/Creator – Graig Weich: “It’s like magic, to turn a blank piece of paper into something heroic that bring smiles to the faces of children and adults alike, just makes it all worthwhile. By donating my art to charities to help raise money for ill children and animals in need, is as if the superheroes I created are actually able to help people in the real world. When all is said and done, that is what it’s truly about.”
