John Orlando began as a penciling assistant to Rich Buckler in 1994 for Buckler’s Visage Studios, assisting on Syphons The Sygate Strategem for Now Comics, Zaanan for Mainstream Comics, and Gene Roddenberry’s The Lost Universe for Tekno Comics.

He became Production Manager for Buckler at Visage in 1995, and a penciler, Inker, colorist, painter and letterer, producing covers, pagework, and portfolio sets for various publishers.

John produced several creator-owned books in 1996-98 including the off-beat titles Cybergen, Journey into Madness, The Intruder, and a co-owned property with Roy Thomas, Doc Behemoth.

Other projects include pencil work on Fleer Marvel Vision cards, and Fleer 1996 Metal Universe baseball card set.

During this time, he was a sometimes columnist for the industry news publication M.A.I.N. Magazine (Mature Audience Industry News).

With the comics industry then experiencing a slump, John became a freelance commercial artist serving the garment industry.

A life-long fan of the comix underground, John is currently devoting his time to his comic Fha-Q, published by Joe Martino’s JGM Comics.
