W. Chew ‘Chewie’ Chan (Australian)

Chewie Chan greedily spends his days either drawing comic books (Iron Man, The Phantom, Cthulhu Tales), storyboarding movies (Superman Returns, Happy Feet), being the Comics Consultant for the Kinokuniya bookstore chain, lecturing in Animation at UTS or serving as reviewer/market analyst for various sectors of the publishing industry including Bookseller + Publisher Magazine. Chewie stopped short at also being graphic novels supervisor for George Miller's KMM/Dr.D Studios once it was pointed out to him that simply made him look like a glutton.
