In the few years since his entry into the indie film community, Kevin Smith has seen it all -- from the surprise critical and commercial success he received for his debut film Clerks to the disappointing critical and commercial drubbing he took on his second outing, Mallrats. He caught a break on his third film, the critically hailed Chasing Amy, and managed not to get killed by the religious zealots over his fourth film, the comedic meditation Dogma. Thus not deterred, Smith advanced and has written and directed Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Zach and Miri Make A Porno.
He's written comic books featuring not only his own characters (Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob), but other characters as well--the award-winning Daredevil at Marvel Comics, and the award-winning GREEN ARROW at DC comics. And if the film thing doesn't pan out, he does own his own comic-book store -- Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, in beautiful downtown Red Bank, New Jersey.
