My name is Arvid. I’m a comic book writer. This is my site! Yay.
Rex Mundi is a project I worked on for about ten years. It’s a quest for the Holy Grail told as a murder mystery. I also created Zero Killer, set in a world destroyed by nuclear war in 1973. My next Big Project is The Band of the Crow, a novel based on my love of Celtic and Norse mythology.
In the meantime, I’m doing work for lots of publishers, including Dark Horse and Dynamite Entertainment. I’m also working on an illustrated novella through Radical Comics with Joseph Kosinski, the director of the upcoming Tron: Legacy movie.
I am proud to be an adherent of the Bahá’í Faith. I became a Bahá’í in college. Aside from the tenets of my religion, I have but two creeds in life: 1., pie > cake, and, 2., metal > punk. Metal RULES.
I’m also married to the beautiful and lovely Robyn Nelson, née Sklar. I studied Kempo for about fifteen years, and I took opera lessons all through high school. I just started taking MMA classes, too, so beware: I will rock your world when it comes to karaoke, jump-kicking, or submission grappling.
Be my friend! And if you want to drop me a line, please do: arvid (at) rexmundi (dot) net.
The Arvidland Manifesto
Arvidland is the best way to stay informed about all of my projects. I’ll also post little snippets now and again about things I like. I’m going to try to keep it interesting (don’t laugh). I promise I will never, ever post pictures of cats in Halloween costumes, or the excruciating details of my adventures making a peach cobbler. Or whatever.
I also promise – and I’ve already been guilty of this, but no more – to stay positive. There’s more than enough negativity and nastiness on the Internet, thank you very much. Any time you see a new post, it will be because of something I love, not something I despise.
