Story
Tagline
Founder, Sequart Organization and Martian Lit. Author, Martian Comics, Classics on Infinite Earths, others. Film producer, She Makes Comics, others. Ph.D., English.
Introduction
In 1996, while still an undergraduate, Dr. Julian Darius founded what would become Sequart Organization, which publishes non-fiction and documentary films on comic books and promotes the medium as a legitimate form of art. After graduating magna cum laude from Lawrence University (Appleton, Wisconsin), he obtained his M.A. in English, authoring a thesis on John Milton and utopianism. In 2002, he moved to Waikiki, teaching college while obtaining an M.A. in French (high honors) and a Ph.D. in English. In 2011, he founded Martian Lit, which publishes smart but offbeat fiction.

As a comics scholar, Darius is the author of Classics on Infinite Earths: The Justice League and DC Crossover Canon (2015); Improving the Foundations: Batman Begins from Comics to Screen (first edition, 2005), the first book ever written on Christopher Nolan's Batman; and other books.

As a fiction author, Darius writes the comic book Martian Comics (2014-present). He also authored the transgressive novel Nira/Sussa (2012) and other works.

He currently lives in Illinois.

We ate here, and the food was solid. Then we went to the bar. Everyone couldn't have been nicer, and waved as we left. Had a blast!
