James Burns

In 2002, he was diagnosed with a detached retina, which threatened his eyesight. After recovering, and at age 45, he wrote and drew his first comic book, Detached about the experience, as well as the fear and doubts that were connected with it.

After that, he created the weekly comic strip Grumbles for Atlanta's Sunday Paper, which ran for 6 1/2 years in the paper, and a total of 12 years online.

James has also created several independently published comics including his graphic novel Daemon Process, the first two issues of the anthology The Burner, his anthology Real Magicalism, the parody Astral Crusader, Speechless, über-tales, Lance Star, and his latest autobiographical work, A Life Half-Forgotten. His work has also been included in the last several editions of Not My Small Diary.
