I’m MJ Massey, art nerd, Byzantine Catholic, and comic creator. My religious background combined with a love of fantasy and anime gave me a very specific love of epic fight scenes in epic churches. I create worlds filled with beautiful architecture, dark intrigue, and complex characters coming into their own through their relationships to the people around them, all brought to life with my trusty markers.
