Derek Fridolfs
United States
I've worked professionally as an writer, inker, cover & sequential artist for DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Boom, IDW, and a majority of comic companies the past 15 years.

#1 New York Times Best Selling Writer for the DC Secret Hero Society book series through SCHOLASTIC. And Eisner Nominated co-writer of Batman: Li'l Gotham at DC.

I've also written for such titles as Adventure Time, Regular Show, Clarence, Looney Tunes, Scooby-Doo, Dexter's Laboratory, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The New Animated Adventures, Batman Arkham City, Batman Arkham Unhinged, Adventures Of Superman, Justice League Beyond and many more.

Current Residence: California
Favourite genre of music: Movie Scores & New Age...great ambiance music for working to
Favourite style of art: pen & ink
Operating System: Mac
Favourite cartoon character: Batman, Kim Possible, Stitch
The next convention that I'll be attending is the Long Beach Comic Expo on February 20th and 21st. It's been nice watching this show grow each year. The Expo used to be the smaller show at the start of the year, but now it's as large as the Comic Con they put on near the end of the year.

I'll be in Artists Alley at table E6, and bringing my usual assortment of original sequential art, comics, and available for commissions & sketch covers. And a chance for you to get Dustin Nguyen and I to sign our new "Secret Hero Society" books that just debuted from SCHOLASTIC.

Also I'm going to be sitting on a panel for the show on Sunday, February 21 from 4-5pm (in the Creator's Lab room S5). It's a Make Comics panel for "An In Depth Discussion On The Art Of Inking". This should be interesting since I've actually transitioned out of inking for the most part, and seem to juggle my time spent writing or even drawing covers and sequentials. But I'm game to talk a little shop and answer questions.

Hope to see you there!
