Bio

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Arvin Loudermilk hand wrote his first novel—a high school superhero fantasy based embarrassingly, and almost entirely, on himself—at the age of seventeen. As a young man he had moderate illustration skills, leading friends and family to believe he was good at drawing, when unfortunately, he was barely decent, at best. Despite this, his desire to create comic books was strong, yet without an

able illustration hand, his potential was limited.

 

In May of 1989, Arvin met Mike Iverson, an illustrator and designer looking for part-time work in a new and still unknown town. By the end of their first hour of conversation, Mike and Arvin had joined forces on New Guard, a Soviet era superhero comic. Sadly, the late lamented New Guard never found a publisher, despite numerous submission efforts. A second comic book concept, Vigil, a crime fiction epic featuring a gun-wielding vampire vigilante, had better success, finding publication with Innovation in 1992. Twenty-one more issues of Vigil followed, from two more publishers, ending

its run at over a thousand pages.

 

A myriad of follow-up projects were juggled and considered, but Collective, a science fiction soap opera, won the day. Collective’s first storyline saw four print issues, before Arvin  and Mike, desperate to see this specific work in color, shifted to the new and unstable ground of web publishing. The series' initial run was completed online, totally in at more than three hundred and fifty pages. Additional Collective stories were on the drawing table, but tragedy and the real world intervened.

 

In the years that followed, Arvin became more and more convinced that Collective and Vigil would be natural fits in the world of prose. The development process to shift to this new creative platform was long and frustrating, but the end result, an assortment of novels and novellas, began its long-term publishing schedule with the 2012 release of In a Flash.
