AHAD BHAIJI was born in Nairobi, Kenya, and moved to the United States at the age of seven. He counts the classical Hieronymus Bosch, Jan van Eyck, and the modern comic book illustrator Jae Lee as artists who have influenced his style and vision. Previously, he contributed two solo stories, but this third story was done in conjunction with Nate Hessling and Carlos Gabriel Ruiz and is dedicated to a dear friend, Bradley King, who passed away in 2011-R.I.P. Brad "BK" King. He currently resides in St. Louis, Missouri, with his two bastard dogs.
