Rob is a longtime comics critic (for such websites as Silver Bullet Comic Books, Comic Book Galaxy and Ninth Art, and for The Comics Journal, the magazine of record for the comics industry) and manager of ATOMIK POP!, a pop culture store that specializes in comics, manga, anime, and Hello Kitty merchandise in Norman, Oklahoma. He has also worked as a professional musician and still plays shows with two groups, one backing-up singer Shelly Phelps, and the other a reunited effort with his band from high school, Brother Tentacle.

Both of Rob's published graphic novels have been with the same artist, Pablo G. Callejo. Their first book, THE CASTAWAYS, was released in English by Absence of Ink in 2002 and in Spanish by Dude Comix in 2003, just after it was nominated for an Eisner in the Best Single-Issue/One-Shot category. Their latest effort, BLUESMAN was serialized beginning in 2004 in French by Akileos Comics, in February 2005 by Absence of Ink, and, most recently, in Spanish by the esteemed De Ponent in Spain.

Rob also lectures on comics and manga and assists librarians curious about the potential for comics to reach out to the teen audience. In 2003, he did a series of for Young Adult readers in the OKC metro library system and in 2004, he did the same for the Pioneer Library System that services Norman and outlying towns. He recently was invited to deliver a speech to the Oklahoma Librarians Association at their State Convention on the history of comics and censorship.

Pablo G. Callejo was born in León, Spain, in 1967. When asked about his artwork, Pablo says he can't remember when he started to draw. But he has taken it easy, since he didn't try to get published until he was 32.

Pablo now lives in Madrid, where he draws for publishers in France, Spain and the U.S.
