Creative Team

JEFF CAHN (writer) was born and raised in New Orleans’ historic French Quarter. Jeff’s interest in comics was spawned one Christmas morning when his Grandmother bought him his first Spider-man comic. Ever rooting for the bad guy, Jeff quickly found himself a fan of the antihero and characters uniquely flawed in their heroism. After graduating high school, he migrated to southern California where he attended Pomona College. There he majored in English with a creative writing concentration and minored in philosophy. After graduating, he returned to New Orleans, where he interned on the set of “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” for Digital Domain’s Oscar winning visual effects team. Once the shoot wrapped, he returned to Los Angeles and now works at Benaroya Pictures and Publishing as a story developer and writer of both screen and comics.
