Steve McGarry is the creator of the comic strips Biographic, KidTown, Badlands and Trivquiz. Biographic combines McGarry's bold, realistic artwork with biographies of today's hottest stars. KidCity is written for children ages 6 to 12 and is designed to engage them on the comics page with puzzles, activities, scavenger hunts and trivia. The western spoof strip Badlands is about the silly and saucy antics of Marshal Mask and his motley mob of maladjusted misfits. Trivquiz is a daily dose of facts and trivia questions designed to test the reader’s knowledge of pop culture.
