John Ira Thomas is the author of over twenty books, including the award-winning graphic novel MAN IS VOX: Barracudae (2015 Indiefab Silver Medal in Graphic Novels) from Candle Light Press. He has two Master’s Degrees, stoops a bit, and his newest book is MAN IS VOX: Paingels (Expanded Edition), the original edition of which Booklist said “recalls nothing more than the early surrealist film masterpieces Dalí and Buñuel’s Un chien Andalou and Cocteau’s Le Sang d’un poete.”
