Hi, my name is Mike Gagnon, and I am an author, illustrator, and instructor.
I create original graphic novels, comic books, novels, scripts for film, and more. I use these skills on my own original properties as well as for clients all over the world. I also teach new artists how to do the same.
I love helping others realize their creative dreams and speaking to community groups, creative groups, or supporting charity events.

- Charity events
- Public Speaking and presentations
- Fan mail
- Workshop Facilitator
- Arts, writing, and comic based short-term educational courses

I love to tell stories that make you think. I might tell you an eerie horror story that gives you chills, leaving you spending a sleepless night staring at your closet. I might tell you a satire that makes you laugh until you cry. I might tell you a crime story, so suspenseful that it leaves you breathless, wondering if the detective will apprehend the killer before they strike again. I might tell you an erotica that will leave you breathless for…other reasons… But above all, I want to tell you a story that makes you think: about life, love society…about real life issues that make you challenge your own beliefs, all through the safe and comfortable filter of fiction.
I have over 15 years of professional experience in writing and illustration for graphic novels and film. I have also had the privilege of being a part of the writing team for The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe and it’s one-shot spin-off; Deadpool Corps: Rank and Foul along with being involved with art production for Dark Horse Comics and Jack Lake Productions.
I currently spend most of my time working as a traditional novelist and teaching the next generation of artists and writers. I collaborate with some great art organizations and schools and conduct independent seminars, as well as serve as an adjunct professor teaching writing and digital illustration in the Sequential Arts program at Max the Mutt College of Animation, Art, and Design in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
