Happy Birthday, Tom Taylor

November 28, 2011 at 8:29 am | Posted in Birthday, Comic Books | Leave a comment

Today we wish comic writer Tom Taylor a very happy birthday. Tom is the writer for the Star Wars comic series Invasion and Blood Ties. His birthday is technically November 29, which is tomorrow here in the United States, but since Tom was born in Australia, and since it’s already November 29th there, now is as good a time as any to celebrate.

Born in Melbourne, Australia, Tom has had a long career in writing and performing for theater and musicals, winning numerous awards. As a comic writer, he’s written for Dark Horse Comics, DC Comics, and Gestalt Publishing. His original works include several graphic novels, The Deep: Here Be Dragons, The Example, and his comic series Rombies which combines ancient Rome with zombies. His Star Wars works include Invasion: Refugees, Invasion: Rescues, Invasion: Revelations, Blood Ties: A Tale of Jango and Boba Fett, Star Wars Adventures: Luke Skywalker and the Treasures of the Dragonsnakes, and Star Wars Adventures: The Will of Darth Vader. His next Star Wars project will be Blood Ties: Boba Fett is Dead, plus the unnamed fourth arc in the Invasion series. Continue Reading Happy Birthday, Tom Taylor…
