JOE HARRIS is the writer of original comics and graphic novels such as the demonic rock ‘n’ roll thrill ride, Rockstars, and the sci-fi adventure series, Great Pacific and Snowfall (Image Comics); along with the supernatural thrillers, Ghost Projekt and Spontaneous, and the children’s fantasy, Wars In Toyland(Oni Press); and the ghostly journey into the Fukushima nuclear exclusion zone, Disaster Inc. (AfterShock). As a young creator at Marvel Comics, Joe launched the cult-classic Spider-Man spinoff, Slingers and the Bishop: The Last X-Man series. Recognized for writing the long-running, hit comics continuation of Agents Mulder and Scully’s paranormal investigations into The X-Files to the enjoyment of fans around the world, The X-Files: Cold Cases—an audio adaptation featuring the voices of David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and the entire television cast—were released by Audible to chart-topping success and multiple Audie Awards nominations. A follow-up production, The X-Files: Stolen Lives was released soon after.
A horror screenwriter and filmmaker, Harris conceived and co-wrote Darkness Falls for Sony Pictures, along with the farcical political slasher movie, The Tripper for FOX. In 2018, he co-wrote the live-action web series, Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe for Valiant Entertainment.
Surviving Nuclear Attack, a paranoid sci-fi thriller written by Joe, was serialized as part of John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction (Storm King Comics) in 2019. The grisly Viking werewolf saga, Sun Eater—created by Dylan Sprouse and written by Sprouse & Joe Harris—will be published by Heavy Metal in 2020/2021.
A native New Yorker, Joe lives in Manhattan.
