Mike is originally from the Selmer/Jackson, TN area, but went to college at Memphis State and got his start in comics while living in Memphis and doing advertising work back in the late ’90s. He was also a member of the MSCA back in the day before moving to Chicago to become the art director for Devil’s Due Comics, and then on to drawing for DC Comics, Marvel, and more.
Mike has worked for just about every comic book company out there (and some that aren’t anymore), and has done both licensed properties and a lot of his own creator owned work.
This month Mike made it out for the inaugural Memphis Libraries Comic Con at the mail library on Poplar Avenue. That day was also Free Comic Book Day, and Norton was joined by fellow comic con guest, writer John Ostrander. They both were interviewed by our own Nicki Workman. You can hear that interview here.
Keep an eye out for his net graphic novel due out this summer!
Happy birthday, Mike!
