Michael Moreci is the creator of numerous original comics series and has written and collaborated on multiple established properties. His most recent original works, Roche Limit (Image Comics) and Burning Fields (BOOM! Studios), were both recognized by many publications as being among the best comics of 2015. Roche Limit was called the “sci-fi comic you need to read” by Nerdist and io9, and Paste Magazine named it one of the “50 best sci-fi comics” of all time.
In 2018, Moreci's debut novel, Black Star Renegades, will be released with St. Martin's Press. Drawing inspiration from the space operatics of Star Wars and the swagger of Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Star Renegades is a galaxy-hopping adventure that blasts its way from seedy spacer bars to sacred temples guarded by strange creatures--all with a cast of misfit characters charged with saving the world. A follow up is slated to be released in 2019.
Moreci is also the author of Curse (BOOM! Studios), a modern-day werewolf story, which is in film development with Blumhouse Productions. His crime-noir series, ReincarNATE, has been optioned for television by Patrice Théroux and Buck Productions with David Hayter (writer of the first two X-Men films, as well as the Watchmen adaptation) attached as showrunner. His Image Comics series Hoax Hunters is currently in development for television with Craig Tittley (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) attached as the showrunner.
A graduate of the DC Comics Writer's Program, Moreci has published the Suicide Squad, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Superman stories. He also wrote the in-canon comic series that bridges the gap between Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. His other licensed property credits include Conan the Barbarian, Dishonored, The Shadow, Army of Darkness, and Robocop.
Moreci's second novel, an espionage thriller titled The Throwaway, will be released in June of 2018 from Forge Books.
Additionally, Moreci also writes for LucasFilm, contributing to StarWars.com, and he is a regular contributor to Tor.com. A Star Wars obsessive, Moreci has released a Star Wars comics anthology the past two years; in total, they've been downloaded over 60,000 times.
Moreci has been profiled by USA Today, Nerdist, Comics Alliance/AOL, Comic Book Resources, and the Hollywood Reporter.
He lives in Chicago with his wife, two children, and his dog (who looks like Chewbacca on four legs).
