Ryan Winn was adopted into the Cult of Comics at the tender age of three. Before he could read words, his eyes soaked up the stories found in the pictures of the comics presented to him by the elders of the cult. At this early age he grew fond of titles such as The Avengers by Gene Colon, John Byrne’s Fantastic Four, and even R. Crumb’s Fritz the Cat. But it was Batman that locked Ryan in as lifelong member.
As one does when raised in such a cult, Ryan dedicated his life to the medium upon reaching adulthood. After years of studying and creating in secret, he found his way into the industry as an apprentice to multiple adepts such as Danny Miki, John Livesay, and Joe Weems. After earning credits of his own with many of the top trade publishers including a journey to Gotham City, he settled in at a rag tag company called Valiant.
Ryan has now reached the stage in his life where his duties shift to sharing the knowledge and love he has acquired for this medium. A medium that has been a place of escape for so many. A medium that has brought so many together. A medium that shows us who we are and what we can be. A medium that deserves to be shared.
You can also find him on twitter. He calls himself Tracer X but it’s really just @ryanwinn.
