About the Publisher

Phil Smith Profile PicPhil Smith.

In addition to the ongoing Freelance, Writing, Graphic Design, Color, Editing and Pre-press services in the comic book industry I provide on a freelance basis I launched my own publishing imprint (this one!). Fighting Lion Comics. We (I guess that is the Royal “we” since it is just me here) launched at Stan Lee’s Comikaze in September 2012 with our first title; BRIK JONES: ATTORNEY FOR EARTH™. Titles and updates are available here as well as via a monthly e-newsletter.

In 2013 projects include starting work for writer J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, Thor, Changeling) on the re-launch of his Joe’s Comics imprint as Production Editor. The first title Ten Grand sold over 67,000 copies in its first printing. Additionally I have freelanced for writer Robert Kirkman’s (The Walking Dead) Skybound Entertainment and BOOM! Studios. Pre-press for professional Athlete Israel Idonije’s comic imprint Athleta Comics with writer Ron Marz and artist Bart Sears. I have also done pre-press and design for the Indian Imprint Rovolt on their line of comics The Legends of Aveon 9 and more.

In 2014 work with JMS went strong as he continued to write some of the industry’s best comics through Image including Ten Grand, Sidekick, Protectors Inc., The Adventures of Apocalypse Al and Dream Police with more on the way. I also had the chance to work on the Corporate sponsored Unbreakable Valor comic #1 by Panasonic which has been nominated for an Industry Award by PR Week in their Business to Business category.

I started work in the industry around 2001/2002 as an intern at Top Cow Productions Inc.. In 9 years I went from intern, to Trade Paperback Editor/Designer to Managing Editor. Before leaving I oversaw the editing and production of all Top Cow’s titles, and designed them. The most audacious print products I worked on were the 1,028 page Compendiums. My favorites were the Art of books including The Art of Marc Silvestri. I never counted, but I’m pretty sure I’ve produced a few hundred comics and several dozen trade paperbacks and logos.

I look forward to sharing Brik Jones: Attorney for Earth, Human:Oceanic and more titles to come with you through this creative outlet. Enjoy!

Live Long…and Prosper., May the Force be with you…Always., If you see Agents…run. May I come to Grok you in Fullness.
