Based in Toronto, Ontario, Conor is the swashbuckling wordsmith behind the Kill Shakespeare series for IDW, Adventure Time/Regular Show for BOOM!, Assassin’s Creed for Titan Comics, and much more. A former journalist who worked on three continents, Conor’s newest projects are a magic realism comics biography of the legendary Fela Kuti: Music is the Weapon for Amistad Press, the coming of age story STATUS written with his wife Crystal Luxmor for Scholastic, and the multi-media Science Fiction story-world, Future Now for Embreate Productions. His most recent series is The Last Witch for BOOM!

The Last Witch begins at the “one time of the year when the witch known as Cailleach hunts the children of the village – so Saoirse, a brave and reckless young girl, decides this is the perfect opportunity to defy her father and discover the secrets of the witch’s tower! But when the Cailleach captures Saoirse and her brother Brahm, their lives are forever changed in ways they never expected. Now, Saoirse will have to save everyone she loves by discovering the truth about the mysterious mark on her shoulder – and embracing her secret magical powers!”
