A Wichita native, Richard Cathey has had a lifelong affinity for comics, anime and science fiction in general. He is the founder of Black Raven Comics and co-founder of The Great Plains Renaissance Festival. His creative works include being the author/creator of “The Stormhammer Saga” series as well as the creative force behind Black Raven’s newest project “Space Pirate Takeo”. Besides writing and producing renaissance festivals he is also the tour manager for the heavy metal band Manilla Road. Born in 1969, he arrived just in time for the first lunar landing and Woodstock – no wonder the 60’s are still such a blur for him!
