About Erik Burnham

Erik Burnham is a Minnesotan writer and artist.

After years working in both broadcasting and retail, Erik finally decided to take a crack at making comics, beginning with the Nick Landime feature in the Shooting Star Comics Anthology.

A positive reception led first to other anthologies, and then to extended work for IDW Publishing on properties like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers: Beast Wars, and a critically acclaimed, ten-year run on the Ghostbusters line of comic books.

He even wrote the official Tobin’s Spirit Guide.

Erik's been fortunate to work with many companies, including Cryptozoic, Dynamite, IDW, Insight Editions, Opus, and Marvel, on a variety of properties and multitude of genres. Superheroes, science fiction, comedy, pulp fantasy... it’s been an embarrassment of riches, and there’s more on the way. (Which is good news, since he loves his work.)

When not turning out stories for other publishers, Erik fills his time working on the webcomic Downside, trying to learn an instrument (badly), and going for walks (this he does okay at.)

Erik still lives in Minnesota; any rumors about this being because he's completely afraid of the forty-nine other states (and Canada) remain unverified at this time.
