From the Publisher:

James Sturm is one of the best and perhaps one of the most underrated cartoonists to have emerged in the 1990's. Sturm's first comic book series was The Cereal Killings, published by Seattle's Fantagraphics Books. This was followed by an ambitious series of stories, "The Revival" in 1996, "Hundreds of Feet Below Daylight" in 1998, and the soon-to-be-published "The Golem's Mighty Swing", a trilogy of which Sturm refers to as American "historical fiction". Outside of his cartooning, Sturm also has had extensive experience in both academic and publishing fields. In 1990 he worked as production assistant on Art Spiegelman's and Francoise Mouly's RAW. After his move to Seattle in the following year, he co-founded The Stranger, that city's free weekly alternative paper, where he worked for the following six years as an art director and writer. As a teacher, he has lectured in high schools and colleges in New York and Seattle, and he is currently a professor at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia, where he heads the "Sequential Arts" program (that's the fancy word for "comics"!).
